The original building and loan associations were organized as limited life funds, whose members made monthly payments on their share subscriptions, then taking turns drawing on the funds for home mortgages. (A) subscriptions, then taking turns drawing (B) subscriptions, and then taking turns drawing (C) subscriptions and then took turns drawing (D) subscriptions and then took turns, they drew (E) subscriptions and then drew, taking turns IMO, made and drew are parallelism, and "taking turns" is modifier of drew. thanks a lot have a nice day >_~ ### GMAT/MBA Expert DavidG@VeritasPrep Legendary Member Joined 14 Jan 2015 Posted: 2542 messages Followed by: 116 members Upvotes: 1153 GMAT Score: 770 Thu Aug 04, 2016 6:14 am Quote: I have no idea how to keep clam down when taking test...

One thing that can help a lot is taking practice tests. The more you take, the more you get accustomed to taking the test and the easier staying calm is. Any half decent practice test will do for this purpose. So if you are out of GMAT Prep tests or don't want to get more or buy more tests of any kind, you could, for instance, use the free first Manhattan test or Veritas test or the free first 800Score quant CAT.

Of course if your test is coming up soon, I guess you don't have time for many more practice tests, but you could at least take a quant or verbal section maybe, anything to get yourself used to the test experience.

Hi Zoe.

What you are describing could work. However the only answer choice that includes drew and taking turns is E, and in E the funds for home mortgages seems to be the object not of drew but of taking turns.

Look at the entire sentence created using E.

The original building and loan associations were organized as limited life funds, whose members made monthly payments on their share subscriptions and then drew, taking turns on the funds for home mortgages.

See? It conveys that they made monthly payments and then drew, taking turns on the funds.

I guess it would work better if taking turns were before drew.

The original building and loan associations were organized as limited life funds, whose members made monthly payments on their share subscriptions and then, taking turns, drew on the funds for home mortgages.

Also, you really need two commas to set off taking turns and make clear that it is a modifier.

Still, the version created using C is maybe slightly better expressed, as what they really did was take turns drawing on the funds.
Hi Marty,

I think I get your idea.
