@boombaat The sentence correction portion of the GMAT measures your ability to identify a sentence choice that is grammatically correct and demonstrates clear and concise writing. In standard written English, the active voice is often the preferred expression, but there is no one rule that would guide what would be correct in every situation. In the case of sentence correction, I would look carefully at each choice before determining the best option. While active voice is one factor you should consider, it is by no means the only way of determining the correct choice

Hey guys, found this sentence correction question on MGMAT:

A new textbook focused on recent advances in artificial intelligence assigned by our instructor.

To which I answered:

A new textbook, assigned by our instructor, focused on recent advances in artificial intelligence.


Was I correct?

Or you could have answered like- A New textbook focused on recent advances in artificial intelligence was assigned by our instructor. Notice the addition of the ver WAS and the passive form of the sentence. Though passive seems awkward in GMAT, they are gramatically right (mostly). Also it could also be that the modifier

focused on recent advances in artificial intelligence is Essential Modifier since it is without any commas and going by the sentence it clearly modifies the BOOK.


Correct the sentence in {........}

{Based on extant archeological evidence, each hunting season women and men collaborated in pursuit of game animals that would feed} the tribe and that, contrary to textbook histories, women hunting alone were not uncommon.
