SC Questions from paper based test by GMAC (disclosed editio

Post Thu Apr 26, 2007 12:25 pm
In 1791, Robert Carter III, one of the wealthiest plantation owner in Virginia, stunned his family, friends and neighbors by filing a deed of emancipation, setting free the more than 500 slaves who were legally considered his property.


A. setting free the more than 500 slaves who were legally considered
B. setting free more than the 500 slaves legally considered as
C. and set free more than 500 slaves, who were legally considered as
D. and set free more than 500 slaves who were considered
E. and he set free the more than 500 slaves who were legally considered as

The correct answer is A. But I don't agree with it because I think the 'the' used in the answer choice is not proper.

Please help me...

I believe the 'the' is required there because you are refering a specific set of 500 hundred slaves with a quality: they were legally considered property. If you omitted the 'the' in the sentence it would alter the meaning of the text.
