Hi,
I have one doubt, this statement compares American dialects of English with European dialect. Thats the only comparison I could not comprehend.

Thanks in advance for the explanation.


hey,
In this sentence comparison is between 2 dialects of english language. one is american dialects and other is european dialects. Both dialects are of same english language. You can understand in following expansion of same sentence:
Whereas American dialects of the English language often adopt words from other languages, European dialects OF ENGLISH LANGUAGE tend toward the creation of new terms and expressions.
The red colored portion is unnecessary and need not be repeated as same can be understood from the original meaning of sentence.

Hope this helps
thanks

Fairly easy question:
Things to note - The comparison is between American dialects and European dialects.
American Dialects is Plural hence the verb will be adopt.


Now let's do the POE.

(A) English language often adopt words from other languages, those of European dialects tend
This is incorrect as the wrong comparison is being made.

(B) English language often adopt words from other languages, that of European dialects tends
This is incorrect as the wrong comparison is being made.

(C) language of English often adopts words from other languages, that of European dialects tends
This is incorrect as the wrong comparison is being made.

(D) English language often adopts words from other languages, European dialects tend
The comparison is correct however, there is a subject-verb disagreement because the sentence has ADOPTS.

(E) English language often adopt words from other languages, European dialects tend
This is the correct choice, as it avoids all the above-mentioned errors.


Hence the correct answer is E.
