It cant be E! Density cant be more numerous or less numerous- it can be more or less..Please confirm.

I have also gone for D. Another mistake that I find with E is that it is having wrong 'if-then' tense use. Can somebody explaing how they have given OA as E.

I also chose D.

I don't know why D is wrong. Maybe "density" and "population" is little bit redundant.

A) Would fail if the density of the timber wolf population in that region is more numerous than - Incorrect
B) Would fail provided the density of the timber wolf population in that region is more than - same as A - incorrect
C) Should fail if the timber wolf density in that region was greater than - Incorrect
D) Will fail if the density of the timber wolf population in that region is greater than
E) Will fail if the timber wolf density in that region were more numerous than

IMO answer is D. I disagree with OA. Please provide us some concrete explanation for justifying E as a correct answer.

primarily because the sentence is using would.

would can be used if the sentence is in a hypothetical subjunctive mood, in simple past or past perfect form (in this case you would use would have).

Would fail provided the density of the timber wolf population in that region is more than

Now if we see D,

As the if part is in present tense, we should use simple present or simple future (will)

Rules of IF-THEN structure:
True at present: If + PRESENT, then + WILL
Untrue at present: If + PAST, then + WOULD
Untrue in the past: If + PAST PERFECT, then + WOULD + HAVE + P2



A wildlife expert predicts that the reintroduction of the Caribou into northern Minnesota would fail if the density of the timber wolf population in that region is more numerous than one wolf for every 39 square miles.

A) Would fail if the density of the timber wolf population in that region is more numerous than
Wrong. [would + is] <-- wrong. The correct if-then structure is: [would + past] --OR-- [will + present]

B) Would fail provided the density of the timber wolf population in that region is more than
Wrong. [would + is] <-- wrong. The correct if-then structure is: [would + past] --OR-- [will + present]

C) Should fail if the timber wolf density in that region was greater than
Wrong. "should" changes meaning because it makes the sentence be untrue condition in the present.

D) Will fail if the density of the timber wolf population in that region is greater than
Correct. Correct. [will + is] <-- correct.

E) Will fail if the timber wolf density in that region were more numerous than[/quote]
Wrong. [will + were] is wrong. The correct structure is: [will + is]

Hope it helps.
