Select the sentence that does NOT have an agreement error.

a. Patient has had no loss of consciousness, has no headache, and there is no pain in neck.

b. Patient has had no loss of consciousness, has no headache, and has no pain in neck.

c. Patient has had no loss of consciousness, he has no headache, and there is no pain in neck.

Answer:
Really unsure -
leaning towards 'c.'

not sure if you need 'he' because you are already talking about the patient.

  • grammar -

    I don't see any agreement errors.

    Sentence b. has the only parallel construction; the others do not.

    Let's see what the expert, Writeacher, says.

    Answer:

    'b' this answer is consistent with with the use of the word 'has'

    'a' has had past tense - the addition of and there is no pain

    I can't even guess at this one - just by the flow of how it sounds - so I am missing out on the RULE!
    Please point me in the right direction.
    Thanks

    This has nothing to do with agreement. As Ms. Sue said, this has to do with parallel construction, and "b" is the only sentence that's correctly written.

    Where are these questions coming from?

    Yes, please tell us from what school you're taking this class.

  • grammar -

    I am taking a Medical Transcription Course - and this is the grammar portion.

  • grammar -

    I like how the class has integrated the medical terms with grammar. I hope the class is better at teaching medical transcription than grammar.
