Sentence Correction: Redundancy - Double Conjunctions or Phrases

Since the internet allows professionals in distant locations to collaborate with and inspire one another, and therefore discover solutions through the convergence of diverse cultures and the formation of a unique developmental process.

Incorrect.

This answer choice is stylistically incorrect. Using both a reason conjunction (Since) and a conclusion conjunction (therefore) to express the relation between two parts of a sentence is redundant. 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:

Because/Since/Due to/As later followed by so/therefore/thus/consequently

Incorrect.

This answer choice repeats the original Stylistic flaw. Using both a reason conjunction (Since) and a conclusion conjunction (consequently) to express the relation between two parts of a sentence is redundant. 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:

Because/Since/Due to/As later followed by so/therefore/thus/consequently

Incorrect.

The original sentence uses both a reason conjunction (Since) and a conclusion conjunction (therefore) to express the relation between two parts of a sentence. Although this answer choice corrects this Redundancy, it is grammatically incorrect. The verb collaborate requires a preposition in order to logically connect to one another

What helps us identify this question as a Split Construction question and identify the mistake is the following Stop Sign:

A split construction: Verb A + and/or + Verb B + object

Incorrect.

The original sentence uses both a reason conjunction (Since) and a conclusion conjunction (therefore) to express the relation between two parts of a sentence. Although this answer choice corrects this Redundancy, it does not fit into the original sentence and creates the illogical phrase the formation of unique development processes and the convergence of diverse cultures process.

Correct.

The original sentence uses both a reason conjunction (Since) and a conclusion conjunction (therefore) to express the relation between two parts of a sentence. This answer choice corrects this Redundancy by only using the reason conjunction therefore.
