This sentence begins with the phrase "just so..." - and if you are familiar with the types of sentence structures that are a popular with the GMAT exam, you'll know what to look for and what to expect.
You might not be familiar with this kind of sentence structure. After all, nobody really talks like that in person and that's probably why you may no thave heard of it. But for the purposes of the GMAT, you will need to know this sentence structure.
A GMAT sentence like this opens the door for applying Core Framework #6: X& Y consistency. You have two parts of the sentence that are linked together and you need to make sure the left side (X) is consistent with the right side (Y).
Sentence Correction: To Split Or Not To Split?
This X&Y consistency question also contains a split sentence in the middle. The middle area has a descriptive phrase "of its emotion and strife." But since this middle part of the sentence is not part of the underlined portion of the sentence, we do not need to apply Core Framework #4: Split Sentences. Instead, we should be applying Core Framework #6 - since here it's the main part of the sentence that is underlined - not the descriptive phrase.
