如果主语都要平行的话那么主语是可以省略的,但是划线后没省略主语,证明句子逻辑主语不是JB也可以的。

A 没有语法错误,但是整体感觉没有D的表达更精炼,显得很罗嗦,况且这句话Paris was her home long before it was fashionable to be an expatriate这么写会比较好Paris was her home long before an expatriate which was fashinable

B 夹心问题,中间那坨应该放最后

C 和A第二个问题类似

E 哪都比D好,除了那个being

and前后主语可以不一致

AB不够简洁,尤其是后面有made her home这样的简洁说法

C主语不对,to Be xx在这里是JB 成为

E有Being错

选D

    and后面的主语是she,前面的主语是人名会更工整,所以排除掉ABE,C D比较,C没有D的表达更清晰简洁。D用逗号隔开了句子,可以很好的表达出两个重点。

      wordy要你吗回复wordy要你吗

      The point that you have missed is that Josephine baker wasn’t from Paris. Therefore, Paris couldn’t have been her native place. How do we know this? We know this because the author gives us enough context to establish the same. Look at how author gives us information about Josephine Baker. She considered Paris her home way before it was fashionable to be an emigrant. Now how do you think the two pieces of facts (color-coded above) relate to each other? Why is the author saying that Paris was home to Josephine before it was fashionable to live outside one’s own country (i.e. as an expatriate)? Let’s move on to analyzing the sentence structure break-up and the error-analysis presented by you: cl1: To Josephine Baker, Paris was her home long before it was fashionable to be an expatriate,and cl2: She remained in France during the Second World War as a performer and an intelligence agent for the Resistance This is how I would break the sentence in to various clauses: • To Josephine Baker, Paris was her home o long before it was fashionable to be an expatriate, • and she remained in France during the Second World War o as a performer and an intelligence agent for the Resistance. So in all there are three clauses in the sentence above. The subject verb pairs are highlighted appropriately. The subject of the second clause is “it”. Now you have mentioned in your error analysis that “it” here lacks a referent. Let me ask you a question here : Does “it” always refer to something? For example, in the sentence It is raining, does “it” refer to anything in particular? The answer is no! The “it” here is what we call a dummy or placeholder “it” and one should not look for a referent for a dummy “it”. Let’s take a look at a couple of more sentences to where the dummy “it” has been used: 1. It is wise to invest your money in mutual fund. 2. Do you think it is important that we keep our promises? As you can see, in both the sentences, “it” does not refer to anything in particular. The second error, as hinted by you as well, is that here both the clauses can be made more structurally parallel. Ideally the sentence should have Josephine as the subject of the first clause and not Paris, since we are talking about her in both the clauses. In other words, Josephine is the focus of the sentence and not Paris. Moving on, you have marked choice C as the correct answer; however, choice C is extremely awkward in its structure and cannot be a contender for the correct choice. There is no reason for us to write this:…long before to be an expatriate was fashionable Look at choices C and D from fresh eyes. You now know that “it” acts as a dummy “it” in the original sentence and choice D. Accordingly, which choice would you prefer structurally? To help you think in this direction, I would like you to consider the following two sentences. Which one would you prefer? 1. Long before to be an actor was fashionable, he started acting. 2. Long before it was fashionable to be an actor, he started acting.

      wordy要你吗回复wordy要你吗

      The parallelism error between the two clauses seems to be the only grammatical error in option A, but you can also see this as a meaning issue. The subject of the sentence should be Josephine Baker, since the main point of the sentence is to tell us something about her. This focus is lost when Paris is made the subject of the sentence.

      OG has pointed out, that is 2 independent clauses when connected by ', and' are most clear when their subject is same.

    没看懂句意! it was fashionable to be an expatriate是说做侨民很流行

    我希望杀G成功!

    1、后面有and she ,根据平行指代应该是人作为主语,人作为主语,排除paris 做主语的选项,只剩C,D;主语一致流畅性也比较好,还有就是Paris was her home 不能很好地体现出to be an expatriate (移居者);make paris her home 可以体现 “expatriate” 这个信息
    2、另外it was fashionable being an expatriate 不对,it 是形式主语,指代“to be an expatriate”,;to be …不定式作主语不优,用it作为形式主语更好, long before …时间状语在句首比较优,句子主干比较紧凑,排除C

    句意:对于JB来说,在成为侨民时一件很流行的事情之前,巴黎就已经是她的家了,在二战期间,她依然以一个表演者以及抵抗运动的杰出代表人的身份留在法国。
    A 1.and前主语是Paris
    B 1.and前主语是Paris
    C 1.Paris to be an expatriate was fashionable 错
    E 1.and前主语是Paris
    and 前后主语要平行,and she remained的主语是人,因此and前的主语应该是人,排除ABE
    C选项句意改变

    做题的时候完全没有理解句意。it is fashionable to be an expatriate的意思是“做一名华侨是很流行的事情”,做题的时候以为是“巴黎是个很有名的景点”。。。

    错了好多次了。。。个人认为
    A it可能指代Paris,语意不明
    B for用词不当
    C 不定式作从句主语,不放开头时一般要用形式主语it(?存疑)

    范范冲冲冲

    考点 用语 平行and后面代词指代前面一句话的主语,and后是she,说明and前的句子主语是人,因此可以排除ABE选项;C选项before to be an expatriate was fashionable主语太长,不符合表达习惯,可用形式主语代替,排除答案D

    “by the animal overcompensating” suggests that the overcompensation is how the starfish replaces its arm. And that doesn’t actually make sense.

    正确答案D其实也有问题
    Josephine Baker made..., and she remained...
    这里的she多余了。
    同一个主语发出的两个动作,不需要重复代词
    
    因为A没有语法错误,其实看起来A比较合适
    当然,或许A有更大的错误

    a不是没有语法错误,是前后表达奇怪,主语不一致又不并列又灭有关联度,and加起来匪夷所思。

    赞,补充一下,这里正确的it was fashionable to be an expatriate, 是it was adj + to do(be)句式,不能随便改成+doing(be);
    GMAT中合理的being一般都不是作修饰语,因为作修饰语时一般都可以省略being只保留分词或adj,更简洁;合理的being XXX可能是作为动名词短语;

    Shirley小可爱

    不建议像推荐答案那样推理,要知道答案肯定是the most appropriate one,也就是说为了平行前面的主语最好也是JB这个人。
    一个大家都忽略的点:AB里面her是redundant的,类比:For me, Paris is home.而不是For me, Paris is my home.
    另一个问题是,gmat里认为:to be xxx is xxx这种结构awkward,更prefer:it is xxx to be xxx这种结构
