Pure Subject Verb Agreement Question. Though there are other errors in few options.

C - Fragment - Missing Verb

hi,

is choice D right answer, without subject-verb error?


Although there is no S-V error, option D is wrong because of meaning issues:

Each has a different problem.. correct. ( Problem of X is different from problem of Y. Problem of X is different from problem of Z, problem of Z is different from problem of X . .. meaning is clear)
All have similar problems .... correct. (Problem of X, problem of Y and problem of Z are all similar........ meaning is clear)
Each has a similar problem...awkward (Problem of X is similar....similar to what is not clear, since only one problem is referred to in the sentence).

In general, "different" works for "each" ; "similar" works for "all".

Isn't there SV problem in D it should be determine instead of determines or am I missing something please explain ?

Hi sthakur24,

Problems is a noun, not a verb.

... all states face similar industrial waste problems...

Here face is the verb for all states.

A. all states face similar industrial waste problems, the predominating industries and the regulatory environment of the states obviously determines - the verb "determines" is singular while the subject is plural - "the predominating industries and the regulatory environment ". Hence S+V don't agree in number.
B. each state faces a similar industrial waste problem, their predominant industries and regulatory environment obviously determine - "their" is plural but the subject is "each state" which is singular. Again S+V disagreement in number
C. all states face a similar industrial waste problem; their predominating industries and regulatory environment obviously determines - unnecessary semicolon.
D. each state faces similar industrial waste problem, the predominant industries and the regulatory environment of each state obviously determines - same explanation as A
E. all states face similar industrial waste problems, the predominant industries and the regulatory environment of each state obviously determine - Everything is correct. "Determine" is plural and agrees with plural subject "the predominant industries and the regulatory environment "

I think the answer should be E. What is the OA please?


C - Why is it unnecessary semicolon. Both the clauses are independent and it is correct to join them using a semicolon right? Only the verb usage is wrong here.
Can anyone tell me if i am correct?

cool. cool, please. The problem is the haste with which you are handling the problem. Please see the original script and you will find that you have ignored the word 'while' in the non-underlined part, which is common for all the choices That is the reason you feel both are independent clauses. However, the first is a dependent clause. Therefore the use of a semicolon is ungrammatical in C.
I hope you can see the point.
