Answer to Question 91
Choice A, the best answer, is concise and grammatically correct, using the comparative preposition like to express the comparison between many self-taught artists and Perle Hessing. Choices B and E, which replace A's prepositional phrase with clauses introduced by as, use auxiliary verbs that cannot properly be completed by any part of the verb phrase in the main clause: neither have ... did not begin nor did... did not begin is logically or grammatically sound. In C and D, Just as with and Just like are both unnecessarily wordy.
Answer to Question 92
Choice D is the best answer, stating grammatically and clearly that, with the 1986 Tax Reform Act, taxpayers confronted more simultaneous changes than ever before. In choice A, the past perfect had [confronted] illogically places the 1986 events in the same time frame as Never before had...; a simple past tense is needed to present the 1986 events as following the earlier ones. Choices B and C awkwardly place at once between confronted and its direct object, changes. Furthermore, B illogically states that the Act itself was many changes, when the point is rather that it presented many changes, and as many ... that is an unidiomatic comparison. Choice E, too, presents an unidiomatic comparison with so many... that.
Answer to Question 93
Choice E, the best answer, grammatically and clearly makes the statement "x and y can be crucial," in which x and y are parallel clauses, each introduced by the conjunction how. This parallelism is preferable to the use of the noun phrase the frequency in A, B, and C. Furthermore, the frequency of inventory turnovers in A and B is less clear than how frequently the inventory turns over. In B and C is often does not agree with the plural compound subject. Choice D ungrammatically reverses the subject-verb order with is the inventory.
Answer to Question 94
Only C, the best answer, clearly and correctly states that James believed facial expressions perform both functions mentioned: the construction James believed that facial expressions not only x is completed by but also y, where x and y are grammatically parallel. In A, the absence of but also y results in a sentence fragment.
In B, but also contributing is not parallel to not only provide. Choices D and E again lack but also y, instead introducing independent clauses that fail to associate the second part of the belief unequivocally with James. Also, the passive construction is... contributed to by them in E and the phrase the feeling of it in D are awkward in context.
Answer to Question 95
Choice C, the best answer, offers a concise and idiomatic grammatical sequence: the main verb seem is followed by an infinitive (to indicate), which is in turn followed by its direct object, a noun clause introduced by the relative pronoun that. In A, seem is followed by like, a preposition improperly used to introduce a clause.
Also, it either disagrees in number with figures or lacks an antecedent altogether. In B, as if is introduced awkwardly and (in context) unidiomatically between seem and the infinitive. Also, with that omitted, B is ungrammatical. Choices D and E, with of substituted for that, are likewise ungrammatical: of, a preposition, can introduce a phrase, but not a clause.
