Question# 330, 100 Sc

Post Tue Feb 13, 2007 10:05 am
330. Having the right hand and arm being crippled by a sniper's bullet during the First World War, Horace Pippin, a Black American painter, worked by holding the brush in his right hand and guiding its movements with his left.
(A) Having the right hand and arm being crippled by a sniper's bullet during the First World War
(B) In spite of his right hand and arm being crippled by a sniper's bullet during the First World War
(C) Because there had been a sniper's bullet during the First World War that crippled his right hand and arm
(D) The right hand and arm being crippled by a sniper's bullet during the First World War
(E) His right hand and arm crippled by a sniper's bullet during the First World War
E? it doe snot soudn right, I though B) Even though it uses "being", pelase explain

Well this is a classic case where Inspite in being used.

I am sure narrowing the options to B and E is not big deal.

now B starts with "Inspite"

using common sense..

Inspite is mostly used to compare to similar actions..Inspite would be correct if

Inspite being crippled in war he continued fighting in war

but

Inspite being crippled in war, he worked with his right hand and Left hand obviously dont fit.

its not really because of "Being" it is because of Inspite I believe.
