Re: GMAT sentence correction question and solution

To get good marks in "Sentence Correction" questions, you should improve your vocabulary in English language. And try to practice as many as questions. So, you will get an idea, how to solve them. You can prefer Barron's book to prepare for this section. Because, they will provide the answers with detail explanation.

Example:-(From Kalpan book)
1. Making use of contemporary diaries and letters, Florey’s complexity is brilliantly revealed by Lax.

A. Florey’s complexity is brilliantly revealed by Lax
B. Florey is brilliantly shown in all his complexity by Lax
C. Lax brilliantly reveals Florey’s complexity
D. Lax brilliantly revealed the complexity of Florey
E. Lax’s study has brilliantly revealed the complexity of Florey

Explanation:-
After the modifier at the beginning of the sentence we need to know who is ‘making use’ of the materials. Unless we write ‘Lax’ after the comma the modifier will ‘dangle’. Hence we can eliminate A, B and E. (Note that Lax’s study is not the same as Lax!) As the sentence is a general statement we need the present tense and so C is correct.
Do you have any question? or have anything to say?
