Sentence correction from your elected representative

Today’s question of the day is a little bit political. Click here for the answer and explanation.


























A, B - Incorrect: Parallelism error. The construction both X and Y requires X and Y to be from the same part of speech and parallel in structure, but urban (noun) is not parallel to the rural (article + noun). Plus, predict takes a future tense.

C - Incorrect: Wordy and clumsy.

E - Incorrect: Also wordy and clumsy.

D - Correct: This case puts the two items in list in parallel: urban and rural voters.


D is the correct answer
