PT 26 S2 Q4 Does singular/plural form matter?

Postby laukinming » Sat Aug 28, 2010 4:43 am

Hi all

In PT26-S2-Q4, regarding to (D), one explanation says that the issue is not irrelevant and another says that there is "only one" issue.

Shall I pay attention to the singular/plural form in five options? (Could it be a "mistaken point"?)

ps. PT25-S4-Q22 shows the same question, one explanation eliminates (D) because there is "only one" policy.

Yes, a plural word means something different from a singular word. The politician only raises one issue--taxpayer anger over loss of buying power--not multiple issues. Also, the issue he raises is relevant because taxpayer buying power is related to the government's alleged obligation to raise taxes. Two ways to eliminate this one.

:?: 25.4.22 is a point-at-issue question about community service.

Hi Earlcat

Thanks, I used to thought the LR question should focus on the logic rather than grammar.
BTW, IMO, because raising taxes would make taxpayers upset, there is a cause/effect relationship. :)

You can't have logic without grammar. Ce n'est pas possible.

Plural vs. singular actually has a great impact on the statement.
