    Toeic grammar question

    If you unable to retrieve the truck yourself, you may send a representative who must present a valid identification and a letter _____ that you permit him or her to claim the vehicle on your behalf.


    A indicates B indicating C indicated D indication

    ans is (C),why not do (D)
    1.From context ,"a valid identification and a letter indication" should be good choice due to coordinating conjunction.
    2.Indication and indicating are the same meaning.

    Thank for help

    The correct answer is B. D does not work. It is a noun. You need a word that describes "letter". That is the participle "indicating".

    "Indication" and "indicating" do not have the same meaning.

    Re: Toeic grammar question

    I take it to mean 'Can I see "a valid identification and a letter indicating that" as "a valid identification and a letter which indicates that"?'

    Not a teacher.
