Hi all,
I need an explanation on the following question:

Jacksonville, (i) ______ its designers' goal of accommodating an open community with no obvious class differences, has become a fully hierarchical society.

A. obstructing
B. disregarding
C. affirming
D. reflecting
E. upholding

The answer is A but I wonder why B can not be the right one.

Hi Jenny,

please follow the rules for posting a question on the board. Here https://greprepclub.com/forum/rules-to- ... -1652.html

and how to post a question: the easy way. Here https://greprepclub.com/forum/qv-how-to ... -2362.html

back to the question.

The city X, disregarding certain rules or going against the rules for creating an equal society, made the society exactly the contrary: not free and equal but hierarchical.

the only logic answer is A

Regards

Hi,

Doesn't that mean the answer is B? B is disregarding, yet the answer above says A which is obstructing.

Sorry.

I mean for me the OA is B.

I pointed out wrongly above. Then if the OA is A for me it has not much sense.

"its designers' goal of accommodating" is a process which can be obstructed, OBSTRUCT means to prevent or hinder (movement or someone or something in motion).
Can be disregarded too, but obstruct is more appropriate here.

Thank you all!
@Carcass I will keep in mind the rules. This is my first time to post so I didn't know it well.

OA is A, so I changed the answer.

Can you edit and remove the following line from the question.
