The choice of response C corrects the change error: `Architects and stonemasons` correctly changes `maya`. It is also preferable because it contains the active verb “built” rather than the passive “built,” which is included in many of the other response options. The choice of response C (`the Mayans…) is right. The choice of response E also contains an error of agreement of Pronoun: `Crabe` is a singular precursor, while `she` is a plural pronoun. This sentence may be true, but it is rather illogical and more than a little unrealistic. Here is the amending phrase “the day she finished university,” the day she would probably finish planning, not the day she wrote the writing. For now, that is misleading. We will rewrite it as such: if you worry about learning the rules of correcting GMAT sentences, don`t be afraid: you only test some basic grammar concepts and skills. In a certain test, several questions on each topic are usually displayed. These questions test your ability to use English accurately and effectively, so that the answer chosen should be both grammatically correct and the most effective (concise, clear and non-heavy) selection. The GMAT tests you in a very specific way, so it is important not to become familiar with the rules of grammar, but especially with the GMAT correction rules. Practice regularly with real sentence corrections.
Use GMATPrep software or GMAT verbal practice resources during GMAT sentence correction exercise sessions to practice and specifically verify penalty correction issues. This will help you familiarize yourself with the format of each type of error and with the different GMAT correction rules. As fast as possible, you can ask GMAT practice correction questions to fine-tune your weaker areas and focus your preparation time on them. Follow The Most Common Mistakes in a Sentence Correction Spreadsheet. Response choice B illogically compares “computer skills or other technical skills” to “many people.” A correction of the GMAT question sentence will give you a sentence, or the whole part of it will be highlighted. The sentence will be followed by five response options, each of which is a different way of replacing the underlined part of the sentence. The first choice of answer is always the same as the part highlighted. The next four will be different.
The first two elements of the list are infinitesial verbs (words preceded by “to”) – to sing and dance – followed by an acting. The correct version of the sentence was: “I loved to sing, dance and act” or “I loved singing, dancing and acting” In this sentence, who is the dog? What is the precursor to “you”? Sarah or Julie? There is no way to say with certainty what the precursor of “she” is. The correct version of the sentence would clarify this for the reader (for example: “Sarah and Julie took Julie`s dog for a walk”). A swinging modifier is one that “hooks” a sentence (usually the beginning) and doesn`t change the right word or words. Example: There are seven main types of errors that you will find in THE QUESTIONS on the GMAT correction. Sentence correction questions are part of the verbal part of the GMAT. The verbal section contains 36 questions (including sentence correction, reading comprehension and critical arguments) and, as a rule, about 13 sentence correction questions. Here, the modifier looks “terribly around” what she describes. GMAT sentence correction questions require you to locate the subject of a sentence and its verb and make sure they coincide: a plural subject goes with the plural form of a verb, and a singular subject goes with the singular form of a verb.
