I was a little doubtful about 167 ... and now that I read it again, A seems a better answer than B.

B is also wrong because of incorrect usage of so that ... it should always present itself in the form so X that Y, and not as a replacement for 'as to'

I am not sure where, but I did read a rule stating this fact, please correct me if I am wrong, my memory fails me more often than I'd like to believe.

Hi mvikred,

165)

Because of the business communitys uncertainty about the Presidents position in regard to the issue of the budget deficit, an unanticipated rise in interest rates has occurred.
A. in regard to the issue of the budget deficit, an unanticipated rise in interest rates has
B. on the deficit, an unanticipated rise in interest rates has
C. regarding the budgetary deficit, an unanticipated rise in interest rates have
D. on the deficit, an unanticipated rise in interest rates have
E. regarding the deficit, an unanticipated rise in interest rats have


My answer in RED

can eliminate C,D & E - incorrect usage of the verb

Between A and B , B is simple and straight forward as opposed to A, which is structured in a complex way.

Hi Sid,

Sorry for the wrong explanation and answer before.

Like-used to compare two nouns.

Hi mvikred,

Answers:-
167)A
16D
169)C
170)E

Q167)

there are 2 reasons why option A looks better to me
1) correct tense (optionB is in past where as it should be in present perfect)
2) component of/component in , the former seems to be correct .
Please correct me if i am wrong.

I agree with all of u there...rules should be kept in mind...BUT
here the meaning of the sentence changes completely if u go with 'C'
The 'can' placed at the end brings a new meaning to the sentence; just like people can be programmed to think, the computers can also be programmed to think.
Please correct me if i am wrong.


Hi puys,

Considering the past event, could is more suitable here.. Like people is ok as it has hidden menaing.
I will go with D
