More and more young adults wait before buying their first car, the average age of first-time car owners is increasing.
A – More and more young adults wait before buying their
B – Although more and more young adults wait before buying their
C – As more and more young adults wait before planning and buying
D – As more and more young adults wait before buying their
E – Being that more and more young adults are waiting before buying their
Right Answer: D
|As more and more vs more and more||Miscellaneous / Run on Sentence|
|Are waiting||Miscellaneous / Tenses|
The use of the word ‘as’ is important to connect the first clause to the second thereby preventing a sentence run-on.
A – This is a run-on.
B – The use of ‘although’ is incorrect since there is no contrast in the ideas between the two clauses.
C – While it uses the correct connector ‘as’, the use of ‘planning and buying’ is awkward and redundant.
D – This is the correct answer. E – ‘being that’ is awkward; ‘are waiting’ is incorrect since we need to use the simple present to show states of being.
