Hi, I searched for this question after giving a test on Manhattan - and according to them, the OA is E) and not D). Can anyone help clarify why is D) wrong and why is E) correct?

Energized by its new coaching staff, the team already won twice as many games this year as last year, even though several games still remain to be played this year.

A)already won twice as many games this year as did last year, even though I believe DID is a typo here. Even if DID is present, Main sentence is a Fragment rather than a Independent clause. Incorrect

B)has already won twice as many games this year as last year, even if Use of EVEN IF creates a conditional sentence that is not at all required. Incorrect

C)already won twice as many games this year as it did last year, even if Use of EVEN IF creates a conditional sentence that is not at all required. Main sentence is a Fragment rather than a Independent clause. Incorrect

D)has already won twice as many games this year as did last year, even though Correct comparison between the no of games won this year and no of games won last year. Correct

E)has already won twice as many games this year as last year, even though Incorrect comparison between the no of games won this year and last year. Incorrect _________________

D) doesn't sound correct , although none of the other options seems correct.

D) almost compares "the team almost won twice" with "the last year won the games"(makes no sense) . It should ideally be "team has already won twice as many games this year as it(team) did last year".

I think option D should not have the "did". Please verify the posted question with the original text.

may i know why DID is wrong ACCORDING TO YOU.

i have verified....question is correct.

This cant be correct... The team has won as many games his year as did last year... means the team and last year won similar number of games? _________________

From the given sentence, The action (wining games) started in past and continued in present. hence we require present perfect tense instead of past tense. so A C and E ore out. between B and D, B is wrong because of illogical comparison. Option D must be the correct answer. _________________
