HIMALAYA....

Don't you think the E should have "do"...I think the comparision is between the who gain weight more quickly. So it should have do as verb for .those raised in confinement.... where i am going wrong here... pls explain

This is one of the very good SCs to learn.

The best answer is 'E'.

We need "more quicklty than" in this, for better contrast. There is no reason why 'quicker' should be used.

"E" is the best... short & weet, & conveys intended meaning econimocally.

but the eclipse ..should not destroy the comparison.

here it seems that the comparison is between the rate of weight gain and those raised in confinment.

Definite E

Keep C, D E because it is parallel. C is out out because there are two tenses used. D is out for the same reason as D.

We are left with E.

more quickly than is the correct usage.

all other choices are mixing wrong tenses

like associated and required.

tense needs to be || as well
only E uses exercise,associate ...... and require is ||

that is why E is the righ answer.

Gurus please help. ...I am bringing up this Q again because I think the following is important:

I do believe that 'DO' is required in choice E. Why is it not there? Can elipse be really the reason? Isn't "DO' kind of important in this sentence to be elipsed?


..can someone point me to any information on elipses? ..when are they allowed etc.

believe2 : Its proper comparison without "do"
They gain weight more quickly (calves )
than
those raised in confinement(calves)

If i add "do" then to me it would sound like calves are doing something speical to gain weight

Lets consider a simpler sentence:
X gains weight more quickly than Y does.

I think X's gaining weight is being compared with Y's gaining weight here. Not just X vs Y. So the 'Does' is required.
similarly the DO is required in the original Q.
what do you think?

i also think so.

it must have a DO in E whether it is before THOSE or AFTER. If it is before THOSE, it is simple subject verb inversion.
