Sentence Correction 5

    The solution that he worked out was not only correct but complicated.

    1. was not only correct but also complicated.
    2. was correct but complicated.
    3. was correct only but complicated.
    4. No correction required


  • Correct Answer
    Choice (B)

Detailed Solution

"Correct" is a positive description of the solution, while "complicated" is not. So a parallel sentence construction (in this case, ‘not only…but’) is inappropriate.

Option C uses ‘only’ inappropriately.

Option B is the correct choice.

Correct Answer: B
