rss GMAT Practice Question (One of Hundreds)
In 2006, contrary to the arguments of the Justice Department, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld that the military commissions established by the Federal government in March 2002 are not legal, as they are violating "both the Uniform Code of Military Justice and the four Geneva Conventions signed in 1949."
Correct Answer: C
The correct idiom is: not x, but rather y

The correct idiom is: not x, but rather y
The correct sentence structure is: the military commissions ... are not legal, but rather violate

  1. the phrase the military commissions ... are not legal, as they are violating is not the proper idiom
  2. a violation of ... lacks a subject; the use of the semi-colon abruptly cuts off the previous sentence
  3. the correct idiom (not x, but rather y) is used
  4. the phrase the military commissions ... are not legal, but rather they is not the proper idiom; the phrase they constitute a violation of is not concise
  5. the phrase the military commissions ... are not legal, rather they violate is not the proper idiom
