Yaa, many cool features here. But this one is just for self tracking purpose only it seems, would be nice to have that feature to track the timings for all and when we close the thread, there is statistics available.
We have to track and record the timing... 1.32 is real good for this one IMO :)

B is the only choice that sounds right. For A, "maritime code" is paired with the plural "they." C has not been contructed properly. For D, it's not clear what "this" refers to in the sentence. E is not constructed correctly.

Re: Because there are provisions of the new maritime code that.. [#permalink] New post 04 Jun 2010, 13:58


IMO B

large sea areas under provisions of the new maritime code .... is not logical
it seems that under provisions of the new maritime code is incorrectly modifying sea areas ... this rules out C, D & E

(A) ... provisions of the new maritime code that provide ... redundant
what does they refer to?

(C) ... maritime code, already stimulating
comma+ing is an adverbial modifier that modifies the preceding clause ... the subject of already stimulating is not clear

(D) Because even tiny islets can be the basis for claims ... , this has already stimulated
use of this is incorrect here .. see the below examples to understand why this is incorrect

correct: research has shown that 65% people like to smoke, a finding that has surprised most
incorrect: because research has shown that 65% people like to smoke, this finding that has surprised most

+1 B by POE.

In this case "it" is correct although it doesn't have a specific antecedent. Why in this case is correct?

Re: THIS [#permalink] New post 01 Oct 2011, 07:33
This - is a very ambiguous choice. If you read the example carefully you will see the THIS can be many different things.

This - the situation.
This - the basis.
This - new maritime code
and more.

So the sentence is not clear. In GMAT we want to make the sentence very clear and simple. This is usually the wrong choice bc it can refer to many different things most of the time.

Referring to metallicafan’s query whether we can accept the pronoun ‘it’ unreservedly, the answer perhaps lies in logic. 'It' is a singular pronoun and there are only two contenders namely, code and basis for reference. Code is a subject while basis is an object. ‘It’ being a subject pronoun in the given case, the preference is for code.

To answer Schandok’s specific query:
if we need to use the demonstrative pronoun ‘this’ in the given topic, then we can make it as ‘ this provision, or this provisioning or these provisions etc’. A demonstrative pronoun is more of a spoken word, when we point out something physically to some one who is in front. It is not a good custom to let a pronoun dangling without clear reference.

B - active voice with "maritime code provides" along with the proper use of "it" later in the answer choice.

How do you know 'it' has correct antecedent in c?? How can we ever be sure ? Hoow can we be sure it doesnt refer to areas which is just before the comma ?
