    Re: Toefl's Grammer, question (3)

    Which of these answers would you choose in the test? And why? We know the answer, but we're not taking the test for you.


    PS It's grammar, not grammer

    I'm sorry Mr. Tdol, I chose (d), because I felt that other answers don't make sense. Addtionally, when I chose (d) and read the whole sentence, I felt that there was something missing before consisting. Am I Right?

    To me, the sentence seems like this " What began as a cheese shop has since grown into a small conglomerate which consists of a catering business and two retail stores.

    The original sentence is fine with option D.
