Ok I think ppl agree more with using it with possessive.

Correct. Ignore this whole "burying the lead" tripe. It's not a concern when this desired lead immediately follows that which possesses it -- it's not like it's going to get lost in a paragraph somewhere.

Your readers are (somewhat) intelligent adcomms to whom the phrase arrives in its entirety intuitively, rather than ESL or slower English readers who might be tripped up by this construction.

no...you are wrong...it depends on the sentence before it and after it...context as well. you don't want to have repetitive sentences...i was crown college's glee club founder. i was crown college's newspaper editor. i was crown college's champion wrestler. :)

best to just answer the question and sometimes keep the lead at the beginning of the sentence.

So do you have a recommendation for a more coherent example to my grammar question?

depends on the sentence before it and the sentence after it...variety in context. and do you want to focus on the high school or what you did at the high school???

yea this is a tricky question. B is incorrect because...

1) The stimulus says there were MANY extinctions that didn't follow any known meteor impact; And that there are MANY records of major meteor impacts that do not seem to have been followed by mass extinctions.

2) Answer choice B says Major meteor impacts and mass extinctions cannot be consistently causally linked unless many mass extinctions have followed major meteor impacts.

B is consistent with what the stimulus says because there could be MANY meteor impacts that did result in mass extinctions, while at the same time MANY meteor impacts did not result in mass extinctions.

choice A uses the word ALL instead of MANY. With justify questions I always look for strong language over weak language. 

That's a really good tip and thank you. I suppose stronger wording in justify questions always seem better when confused.
