D is wrong because exceeds should be exceeded. Past tense. 1990 - 2000 is in the past. I think it should be

A.

From today onwards...

From the day I saw her....

From Wednesday till today....

I prefer B since A, D, E are all using preposition it to refer to "the growth of the global economy". I think it should only be used to refer to a noun. Not sure!
Between B and C, B is better

See B


Hi!
Can you please explain how B violates the comparison rule? As you mentioned, if you want to compare one thing to another, you are suppose to use "that". B is comparing the growth of economy to one era to another. In my mind, they are NOT the same things i.e. two separate eras and two separate growths v/s in your example where it is the same chair that is in different state from a week before. :?: :?
It is like comparing growth of economy, say, in US and Mexico and considering them one in the same...

"did" is the key. A remains.
B and D - gone. "when" - spoilers
C - exceeds that
E - exceeded what
Both C and E wrongly constructed.

(A) Between 1990 and 2000 the global economy grew more than it did during the 10,000 years from the beginning of agriculture
it - refers to the same - global economy.
looks fine to me

(B) Between 1990 and 2000 the growth of the global economy was more than that during 10,000 years, from when agriculture began
That - refers a new copy - in this case - the growth of global economy - again the growth is different in each case hence this too looks ok
my take was the placement of comma after 10,000 years, from when...

I thought this one was tough and I got it wrong in GMATPrep 2. Considering I got a V41 I would guess this one is a 700-800 level question but its also possible its one of my weaknesses...

Can anyone please explain what is wrong with B


gurang - IMO, the last part of B is awkward. The part that reads "from when agriculture began". A is a much might more common expression. Substituting "since" for "from", it makes more sense to say "since the beginning of agriculture or since the beginning of time, since the beginning of the school year" instead of "since when agriculture began or since when time began or since when the school year began". I think its more idiomatic than grammatical.

(A) Between 1990 and 2000 the global economy grew more than it did during the 10,000 years from the beginning of agriculture Best answer choice. "Between" modifies "grew", and "during" modified "did"' "did" is an ellipses

(B) Between 1990 and 2000 the growth of the global economy was more than that during 10,000 years, from when agriculture began Wrong - improper comparison construction because "between 1990 and 2000" modifies the verb "was", but "during 10000 years" can only modify "that", thus making the sentence illogical; furthermore, the comparison clause only modifies nouns.

(C) The growth of the global economy between 1990 and 2000 exceeds that which had been for 10,000 years from the beginning of agriculture Wrong - improper comparison; "that which" is nonsensical and has no logical referent; "had been" is not consistent (should be "was") .

(D) The growth of the global economy between 1990 and 2000 exceeds what it has been for 10,000 years, from when agriculture began Wrong - Improper comparison; Verb form "has been" is not the correct tense because perfect is for actions ongoing, and 10,000 years ago is not on-going; "began" as present tense is inconsistent with 10,000 years ago.

(E) The growth of the global economy between 1990 and 2000 exceeded what it did for the 10,000 years from the beginning of agriculture Wrong - improper comparison; "what it did" is wordy.

IMO A

why "that which..." is alway incorrect on gmat. please, explain this rule or tell me the relevant website at gmaxonline.

regarding why B is wrong

during+the+period
for +period

that are grammar rules, though minor one. B dose not comply with that rule and is wrong grammatically.

in C, "which had been for 1000...." is wrong because

the growth of the economy between/during
is correct idiom

the growth of the economy is for

is not idiomatic

the preposition "for" can not go with the growth in this case or the preposition "for" can go with "growth" in different meaning.

one big error in C is "had been"

I do not know why "had been" in c is wrong though I am sure this is wrong. please, explain and share your thought.
