A---option A suggests that Mott published her discourse while arguing in a treatise..so by meaning analysis it 's clear Modifier(verb ing+Noun phrase) is distorting the meaning...i am not sure but may be argue for is better idiomatic use.. B-Same error,C-I believe possessive use is dubious here--women's equal political and legal rights Vs equal political and legal right for women and then origin use of "argue" should be preferred over "advocate"..i am not sure but it might be changing the meaning..

Thomas Eakins’ powerful style and his choices of subject—the advances in modern surgery, the discipline of sport, the strains of individuals in tension with society or even with themselves—was as disturbing to his own time as it is compelling for ours.

Kinjal, thanks for your reply. I have the official guides. Could you also tell me if it is is beneficial to get the Manhattan Prep course material? Lastly, do I have a chance of scoring a decent 700+ considering I have two months and my grasp on both Verbal and Quant can be safely said to be average. TIA

@Romeo I will recommend that you give the Mock test and then complete the OG. By completing the Mock test you will be able to identify your areas of improvement and while completing the OG you may focus on these areas.

Which sentence is correct?

1.The band U2 WAS just one of many new groups on the rock music scene in the early 1980's, but less than ten years later, U2 HAD fully ECLIPSED its early rivals in the pantheon of popular music. '

2.The band U2 WAS just one of many new groups on the rock music scene in the early 1980's, but less than ten years later, U2 fully ECLIPSED its early rivals in the pantheon of popular music.

I went with 2 that is wrong .My concept says HAD has a earlier effect in any sentence . The sequence should be HAD->WAS->simple past . So the sentence says "ten years later " and the sentences starts with "WAS " so should not it take a simple past , as it happened 10 years later.Kindly give some more examples like this.

I could make out from the original question ,that are two time markers First: "U2 HAD fully ECLIPSED its early rivals in the pantheon of popular music(sometime after early 1980's and before early 1990's) Second :"point of time which is ten years later(early 1990's)" Is this correct? However , i could not clearly point to such time markers in your example. My understanding 1) 2007 - usage

@apoo2293 concept is very similar in the example I provided. Between 2007 and 2011 (the way it is between 1980's and 1990's in the question under consideration), that figure "had gone" up to 8 hours.


The number of people flying first class on domestic flights rose sharply in 1990, doubling the increase of the previous year.
