original

“[NOUN] [‘TO BE’ VERB] [NOUN/ADJECTIVE]” is
an acceptable construction.

CORRECT: “Te change was good for me.”

INCORRECT: “Te biggest change was when I emigrated
to Russia.” (Use “change occurred” instead.)

Strategy

Whenever you narrow candidate answers to two options
that are both grammatically correct, but one involves a
change in meaning from the original sentence, choose
the answer which preserves the uncorrected sentence’s
original meaning.
