Mon Sep 25, 2017 7:14 pm One of the most important decisions for most people experiencing being relocated for work is if to purchase a home immediately. (A) being relocated for work is if to purchase (B) being relocated for work is whether they should be purchasing (C) being relocated for work is whether or not they purchase (D) relocation for work is if to purchase (E) relocation for work is whether to purchase The OA is E. Why the option D is wrong?

"If" = a hypothetical situation For example, "If I were the Queen of the Universe, everyone would get Fridays off." If the Meaning is a choice between two things, "whether" conveys that idea. The Meaning is the choice between purchasing a home and not purchasing home. _________________ Vivian Kerr GMAT Rockstar, Tutor https://www.GMATrockstar.com https://www.yelp.com/biz/gmat-rockstar-los-angeles Former Kaplan and Grockit instructor, freelance GMAT content creator, now offering affordable, effective, Skype-tutoring for the GMAT at$150/hr.
