1) Randall Poster, a music supervisor, is an admirer of Levi’s work

2) A music supervisor, Randall Poster is an admirer of Levi’s work

Is there any difference between sentence 1 and sentence 2?

What purpose “a music supervisor” serves in sentence 1 and sentence 2?

3) Randall Poster, a music supervisor who has worked on films by Martin Scorsese and Wes Anderson, is an admirer of Levi’s work.

4) A music supervisor who has worked on films by Martin Scorsese and Wes Anderson, Randall Poster is an admirer of Levi’s work.

Is there any difference between sentence 3 and sentence 4?

What purpose “a music supervisor who has worked on films by Martin Scorsese and Wes Anderson serves in sentence 3 and sentence 4?

What purpose “who has worked on films by Martin Scorsese and Wes Anderson” serves in sentence 3 and sentence 4?

5) A) Randall Poster is a music supervisor who has worked on films by Martin Scorsese and Wes Anderson, and is an admirer of Levi’s work.

6) B) Randall Poster, a music supervisor who has worked on films by Martin Scorsese and Wes Anderson, is an admirer of Levi’s work.

Which one of the above will be correct on GMAT( if you find yourself stuck with these two answer choices)?

I can tell you, none has grammatical error.

Let me give you a clue; It has something to do with the logic part of parallelism.

Is it getting exciting?

Is it getting challenging?

6) Randall Poster is a music supervisor who has worked on films by Martin Scorsese and Wes Anderson, and he is an admirer of Levi’s work.

What is the antecedent/ referent of he in the sentence 6?

Is the referent Randall Poster?

Is the referent Martin Scorsese?

Is the referent Wes Anderson?

Let me ease it a bit: The referent of he is Randall Poster.

he can NEVER, NEVER EVER refer to Martin Scorsese.

Similarly, he can NEVER, NEVER EVER refer to Martin Scorsese.

Can you tell me the reason?

What do you think is the reason behind usage of such a strong language by me here?

7) He is a music supervisor who has worked on films by Martin Scorsese and Wes Anderson, and Randall Poster is an admirer of Levi’s work.

Now let me change things a little bit.

In the sentence above, I have actually changed the position of only one thing: placement of pronoun he.

what is the referent of he in the sentence 7 now?

Is the referent still Randall Poster?

Or is the referent Martin Scorsese now?

Or is it Wes Anderson?

Let me ease it a bit: now, none is eligible to be the referent of he in sentence 7.

he can NEVER, NEVER EVER refer to Randall Poster.

he can NEVER, NEVER EVER refer to Martin Scorsese.

Similarly, he can NEVER, NEVER EVER refer to Martin Scorsese.

Can you tell me the reason?

What do you think is the reason behind usage of such a strong language by me here?

8) The bookis swollen.

In GMAT SC, correct answer choice is a sentence.

Is sentence 8 a sentence?

Yes!

A sentence has a subject and a verb, and it communicates a COMPLETE THOUGHT.

Sentence 8 has all the above mentioned constitutes so it is a sentence.

9) The book on the bathroom floor  swollen from shower steam

Is sentence 9 a sentence?

No.

The reason is that it has a subject but it has no verb.

Sentence has both subject and verb: Presence of one is not enough, both are required.

10) The book is.

Here, we have both subject and verb but not a COMPLETE THOUGHT. Therefore, it is not a sentence.

Note: is is a linking verb. Linking verb connects subject to additional information about it. There is no additional information about subject after linking verb is so it is NOT a sentence. For now keep this in mind.

We will have more discussions on it later on.

11) The book on the bathroom floor is  swollen from shower steam

What purpose bathroom serves in sentence 11?

What purpose on the bathroom floor serves in sentence 11?

What purpose on the bathroom floor serves?

What purpose shower serves?

What purpose from shower steam serves?

Hint: Both on the bathroom floor and from shower steam are prepositional phrase BUT both serves different purposes?

12) The potatoes are green.

Is sentence 12 a sentence?

Yes, same deal as was in sentence 8.

A sentence has a subject and a verb, and it communicates a COMPLETE THOUGHT.

Sentence 12 has all the above mentioned constitutes so it is a sentence. Voila!

13) The potato eare green.

Anything wrong here?

14) The sweet potatoes in the vegetable bin are green with mold.

What purpose sweet serves in sentence 14?

What purpose vegetable serves?

What purpose in the vegetable bin serves?

What purpose with mold serves?

Hint: Both in the vegetable bin and with mold are prepositional phrase BUT both serves different purposes?

How many you think, with absolute certainty, that you have got correct?
