Sentence Correction: Redundancy - Double Conjunctions or Phrases

Although it is one of the food products that are most loved by children, yet ketchup, depending on brand, often contains chemical ingredients and a high amount of sugar.

This answer choice is stylistically flawed. Using both Although and yet, which are both opposition words, creates Redundancy. The use of a Double conjunction is one of the specific redundancies that should always be corrected.

What helps us identify this Redundancy is the following Stop Sign:

Though/Although/Even though/Despite/In spite of... later followed by but/yet/however/still/nevertheless

This answer choice repeats the original stylistic flaw. Using both Even though and yet, which are both opposition words, creates Redundancy. The use of a Double conjunction is one of the specific redundancies that should always be corrected.

What helps us identify this Redundancy is the following Stop Sign:

Though/Although/Even though/Despite/In spite of... later followed by but/yet/however/still/nevertheless

Although this answer choice corrects the original Double Conjunction error by removing one of the opposition conjunctions, it is grammatically incorrect. The relative clause that is most loved by children describes the noun that appears immediately before it, namely, the food products. Since the food products is plural, the verb that follows it also needs to be plural. However, is is singular.

What helps us identify this question as a Relative Clause question as well as identify the mistake is the following Stop Sign:

one of the + plural noun + who/which/that

Whenever you see this Stop Sign, make sure that the following verb is plural.
