Recently, I had taken a test in which the blank s[ace was about usage of conclude in a sentence.
However, a review of the cases by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) could not say definitively whether the reported cases were linked to the AstraZeneca vaccine ------- the benefits of the vaccine outweigh any risk.
the options were:
- , concluding
- and concluded
- , concluded
- and concluded that
I have chosen
1st one but the
4th one are correct too.
despite the fact that I don't know how concluding is grammatically working in this context, the meaning makes sense.
I hope that someone would explain that how the
4th one are correct too! and Why not the 3rd one?
