Which of the phrases (A), (B), (C) and (D) given below should replace the phrase given in ‘’bold’’ in the following sentence to make the sentence grammatically correct ? If the sentence is correct as it is and no correction is required, mark (E) as the answer.

Question 192

There is full justification to close down the units ‘’which are neither profitable nor serving’’ any social cause.


The correct construction is Neither X nor Y. 'Which have neither profitable' is wrong construction, in this case the right construction should be which have neither been X nor been Y. This rules out B and C. In D, the verb 'serve' should be used in 'ing' form. To understand this break down the sentence in two parts, close down the unit which are not profitable and close down the unit which are not serving any social cause. The right answer is E.
