Brief psychotherapy requires far fewer hours and costs far less money than traditional psychoanalysis and so will hopefully prove to be an effective treatment for many of the large amount of people currently seeking therapy.

A. will hopefully prove to be an effective treatment for many of the large amount B. will prove hopefully to be an effective treatment for many of the large amount C. hopefully will prove to be an effective treatment for many of large number D. will, it is hoped, prove to be an effective treatment for many of the large number E. will, it is hoped, prove to be an effective treatment for many of the large amount

firstly , yes hopefully used in this fashion is almost always wrong.. pure grammatical reason is that hopefully is an adverb but if you read the sentence , it does not modify anything .. the sentence is "C. hopefully will prove to be an effective treatment for many of large number"... here hopefully is actually replacing 'it is hoped'.... the correct usage of hopefully is " he hopefully waited for his result".. although the word hopefully is actually used in conversation very often as 'it is hoped'... in written english too, it has started being accepted but not in GMAT as of now...

OMFG, how in this world can the OA be D? I mean what is "it is hoped" doing in between will and prove? Looks like a comma splice. How can this be correct?

People is a countable noun. We need "number", not "amount". A, B, and E out. The idiom is "THE...number", not "number".

hmm "the" is definitely a very good catch. But what is your opinion about "It is hoped"?

I chose D based on the amount and number idiom elimination... But what is this placeholder "it" concept??? I mean how to recognize a placeholder pronoun from the usual pronoun which needs an antecedent???

confused between C and D. I would go with D

In D , "it is hoped" sounds awkward to me, but better than "many of large number of"

Happy New Year everyone! Before I get started on this post, and well, restarted on this blog in general, I wanted to mention something. For the past several months...

It’s quickly approaching two years since I last wrote anything on this blog. A lot has happened since then. When I last posted, I had just gotten back from...

Happy 2017! Here is another update, 7 months later. With this pace I might add only one more post before the end of the GSB! However, I promised that...
