    Double answers?

    Here is a question.

    Q. From now on, corporate contract negotiations should be _______ in the presence of one of the company's attorneys.

    a. conducted
    b. furnished
    c. resumed
    d. accommodated


    My book says the answer to this question is a. conducted. But I don't see why c. resumed cannot also be the right one.

    Re: Double answers?

    Welcome to the forums, quirrel.

    Only 'conducted' sounds right to me.


    Please note that a better title would have been
    conducted/resumed.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    If the attorneys are important, then it would be an odd rule if they could be missing during negotiations and then brought in when the negotiations restarted. It's more a question of logic and meaning than grammar.
