GMAT Sentence Correction


Sentence Correction questions present a usually knotty sentence with all or a portion underlined. The answer choices present five versions of the underlined portion and your task is to select the best. Note that the first answer choice always repeats the underlined portion of the original Written English. This is not entirely true. You'll need a strong grasp of proper style and a taste for clarity in writing to do well.

Sample Sentence Correction Question

Like many marriages between Hollywood celebrities, grave difficulties in mergers between well-known companies are often experienced due to jealousy over which partner will receive more attention, both within the partnership and from the outside public.

A. grave difficulties in mergers between well-known companies are often experienced due to jealousy over which partner will receive more attention

B. grave difficulties in well-known company mergers are often experienced due to jealousy over which partner will receive more attention.

C. mergers between well-know companies often experience grave difficulties due to jealousy over which partner will receive more attention.

D. mergers between well-known companies often have been experiencing grave difficulties due to jealousy over which partner will receive more attention.

E. well-known company mergers often have been experiencing grave difficulties due to jealousy over which partner will receive more attention.

Tips: Focus on the answer choices and cancel, cancel, cancel.

Sentence Correction is the most "math-like" question type in the Verbal - speed is of the essence, and the best way to gain speed is to exploit the answer choices. The answer set above presents a typical structure. Notice how two choices start with "grave difficulties" and the other three discuss "mergers". This is the GMAT's way of asking you to make an executive decision.
