# Difficult Sentence Correction Solved QuestionVerbal Ability Discussion

 Q. The United Nations’ Human Development Index takes into account life expectancy, education, as well as income per person
 ✖ A. into account life expectancy, education, as well as income per person ✖ B. life expectancy, education, as well as income per person into account ✔ C. into account life expectancy and education, as well as income per person ✖ D. into account life expectancy, and education, and income per person ✖ E. life expectancy, education, and income per person in its account

Solution:
Option(C) is correct

The problem with the original sentence is the list: we need to have an ‘and’ at the right point. We can have a list such as ‘a, b, and c’ when we intend the items to have equal weight.

Or we can have a list such as ‘a and b, as well as c’ if the first two items are to be taken together.

But we cannot have a list like this: a, b, as well as c. Nor can we have ‘a and b and c’. Using this information we can eliminate A, B and D.

Of the remaining choices, C is best as E is awkward and brings in an unnecessary ‘its’.
