THe construct here is X of Y form. "which" here doesn't strictly modify the noun before comma. In X of Y forms, if the verb agrees with X, then it is also correct For Example: The box of nails, which is kept on table,... So, A cannot be eliminated because of this. In B & D, we need "any other Indian...

In Option C there are two verbs - "provides" & "has" without any seperator such as AND, etc.

i.e. The newly launched aircraft engine "provides".........."has"

Either the clauses should be seperated by COMMA or should have one part acting as Modifier.

Option D fixes it perfectly.

The "which" part says "will" so we need present tense and not past in the verb. So, "is staking" is better selection.

In the construct, "one of X that + verb", the verb has to be as per "X"

For example: One of the books that were kept on the table ....

Similarly,

In the constructs, "one of X + Verb", the verb is singular.

For example:

One of my friend is going for a movie.

I was stuck between C & E and selected E based upon below observations

{C} - Surprises are unexepected so saying "unexpected surprises" is redundancy.

Also, "while preparing for GMAT" is better than "during the course of one's preparation for GMAT"

Hi Mitch,

In "Neither X nor Y", both X & Y should strictly be only nouns? As you mentioned, they cannot be clauses.

Does the same implies for either X or Y and other such forms?

{A} - "They" has no antecedent; INCORRECT {B} - "them" ambiguity; INCORRECT {C} - KEEP {D} - "they" has no antecedent; INCORRECT {E} - agreement was on lineup and not on strength; INCORRECT So, {C} However, i think there is some issue in the question. There seems to be an extra comma, which should n...

Observations - the sentence has neither X nor Y construct so both X Y should be parallel {A} - X & Y are not parallel; INCORRECT {B} - We can only assume missing verb only if that verb is already present in the main sentence. "have" is not. INCORRECT {C} - As per the rule, verb has to be used as per...

It is a case of parallelism. The sentence structure is: While selecting a perfume , experts suggest that you select a scent that A and B. The sentence has two part which should be parallel - complements your personality --> not a clause - it works with your skin. --> this is a clause So, both parts ...

We should maintain parallelism while listing various parts of the sentence. Here, "training workshops", "coaching" , "on the job training" are working as Nouns; however, the last part is not a noun.

Can you please post the complete question so that we can help you better.

If the second verb is omitted, then it doesn't create any issue in the structure.
