Although I chose C, I think there is a slight problem with it. It's missing "is"

the greater is their intellectual advantage in skills underlying reading ability and nonverbal logic.

Explanation is also there But i am unable to understand the explanation.

Here is the Explanation-

"The best choice is C. The phrase the more the children should be completed by a parallel phrase that begins
with a comparative adjective and a noun phrase, as in the greater their... advantage. Only C correctly
completes the structure with a parallel phrase. Choices A. B, D, and E present structures that are unwieldy and
awkward in addition to being nonparallel, and that state the relationship between language use and skills
development less clearly than C does. Also, underlaying in B and underlay in D are incorrect; the meaning of
this sentence requires the present participle of "underlie," underlying, as a modifier of skills."

First of kindly highlight the question.

Also the answer choice c is an idiomatic expression. The more ...... the greater .

actually comparitive degree must be compared to comparitive degree to make it parallel.

more ==>comparative degree
greater ===>comparative degree.

similar sentences are:
the more you study ,the better you will score.
so it is not necessary that it will be followed by the greater.

the more you work out ,the more you will be fit.

hope it helps

Between B and C, C does not have not SV pair. Though is sound better but not follow the SV rule.
It should be B

Blueseas but in the more you work hard,the better will score has SV

but in choice C there is no SV for 2nd part.

hi amit ,

this type of construction is fine with GMAT.

BELOW is the OG13 #2

Manufacturers rate batteries in watt-hours; if thev rate the watt-hour higher, the longer the battery can be expected to last.
(A) if they rate the watt-hour higher, the longer
(B) rating the watt-hour higher, it is that much longer
(C) the higher the watt-hour rating, the longer
(D) the higher the watt-hour rating, it is that muchlonger that
(E) when the watt-hour rating is higher, the longer it is

correct option is option C
In this starting part doesnt have a verb .so GMAT doesnt assumes it wrong.
MOREOVER i have confirmed with shraddha from e-gmat.

hope it helps.

Hi Egmat,
Dr. Hakuta’s research among Hispanic children in the United States indicates that the more the children use both Spanish and English, their intellectual advantage is greater in skills underlying reading ability and nonverbal logic.

(A) their intellectual advantage is greater in skills underlying reading ability and nonverbal logic
(B) their intellectual advantage is the greater in skills underlaying reading ability and nonverbal logic
(C) the greater their intellectual advantage in skills underlying reading ability and nonverbal logic
(D) in skills that underlay reading ability and nonverbal logic, their intellectual advantage is the greater
(E) in skills underlying reading ability and nonverbal logic, the greater intellectual advantage is theirs

How to tackle above question it has no subject verb pair and parallelism marker.
here that the more the children use both Spanish and English is a clause and use is its verb.
their intellectual advantage is greater in skills underlying reading ability and nonverbal logic is another sentence with subject and verb so joining two sentences with comma is wrong. OG says correct answer is C but here also there is subject verb combination. Also, there is no parallel marker here. indicates has two constructions:
1. indicates that.....
2. indicates...
so how to identify parallelism and in general how we tackle such questions?

completes the structure with a parallel phrase.
