With their similar price ranges and menus, “theme” restaurants located in shopping malls often succeed despite the fact that they are clustered next to one another; one reason is suggested by the behavior of their customers, who would rather eat in proximity to the area in which they are shopping than leave the area to eat, even if this means choosing from limited options.


A. With their similar price ranges and menus, “theme” restaurants located in shopping malls often succeed despite the fact that they are clustered next to one another; one reason is suggested by the behavior of their customers, who would rather eat in proximity to the area in which they are shopping than leave the area to eat, even if this means choosing from limited options.

B. If clustered next to each other in shopping malls, one reason that “theme” restaurants with similar price ranges and menus succeed is suggested by the behavior of their customers, who would rather eat in the area in which they are shopping than leave the area to eat, even if this means choosing from limited options.

C. If clustered next to each other in shopping malls, one reason that “theme” restaurants with similar price ranges and menus succeed is suggested by their customers, who would rather eat in proximity to the area in which they are shopping even if this means choosing from limited options than those who would rather leave the area to eat.

D. The fact that there are customers who would rather eat in the area in which they are shopping even if this means choosing from limited options than leave the area to eat is suggestive of one reason, if clustered next to one another in shopping malls, “theme” restaurants with similar price ranges and menus can succeed.

E. The fact that there are customers who would rather eat in the area in which they are shopping than leave the area to eat suggests one reason “theme” restaurants with similar price ranges and menus located in shopping malls can succeed despite being clustered next to one another.

PRINCETON REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



A

This is a long sentence, but it has no apparent errors. Since you could not spot the error in the underlined portion of the sentence, you should have gone to each answer choice, and when you found an error there, eliminated it.

(A) Yes. This answer choice is long and a bit clunky, but it doesn’t violate any rules.

(B) No. As written, the sentence says that one reason is clustered next to each other, which is a misplaced modifier.

(C) No. This choice contains the same misplaced modifier as (B). Suggested by their customers is another error—it is their behavior that suggests, not the customers themselves.

(D) No. Although it appears nearer to the end of the sentence rather than the beginning, one reason is modified by if clustered next to each other, which doesn’t make sense. Furthermore, the sentence’s subject, the fact, does not make sense with the sentence’s verb, is suggestive. It is not the fact that is suggestive, but the customers’ behavior.

(E) No. The fact does not suggest one reason the restaurants can succeed. Instead, consumers’ behavior suggests one reason the restaurants can succeed. Also, the phrase menus located in shopping malls makes it sound as though the menus, rather than the restaurants, are located in shopping malls. And remember: GMAC hates being.

b,c and d are quite awkward.
E says can succeed but it is not the case.
A is correct.
I am sure someone can explain this in a better way.
