I would really appreciate any explanations people can provide...specifically, why "than" and not "as". Also, why do we need "what" at the end of the sentence?

thx.

E
For me it was easy to reject A,B,C the real fight was between D and E, but D also includes the month under question, it should be all months other than that month so E is my choice.

can anyone help to explain this? thanks!


the right idiom is '...more than' not '...more as'. The original sentence may be rewritten as:

Even though more money was removed out of stock funds in July as (wrong because of the more. it should be than in order to get the idiom, ...more than ) in any month since October 1987, sales of fund shares in July were not as low as an industry trade group had previously estimated.

Besides, the correct usage of idiom, to ensure the sales of fund shares is correctly compared the sales that the industry group estimated, what is necessary.

E is best.

The correct idiom is more ..........than not more .......as. so A and B are wrong. C is too wordy. In D, ".....than in any month" doesnot sound good. the proper comparision is "more than in any other month". if we say "more than in any month", it includes july too, which is wrong.

What is necessary. Let's first shorten the clause to
(a) "Sales were not as low as a group predicted"
or, (b) "Sales were not as low as what a group predicted"

If you still can't hear how b is better than a, think about what the two things being compared here are: Are you comparing sales to a predictions, or are you comparing actual sales to predicted sales?

This is how I analyzed this:
"what" is required at the end of the sentence which leaves with "B" and "E"
b/w the two...the pronoun "that" is the correct preposition to do the comparison.

I answered E but had a fight between D and E.
Still not convinced.
Here's my reasoning.
A and B out because than is missing.
C that and which both used.
Between D and E chose E because
"than in any other month" sounds better than "any month "and "what "refers to the prediction by industrialist and above all E sounds better to ear than D

Please give a description.

Same, between D and E chose E. I thought "other" further emphasized months BESIDES this July and October 1987. The choice D may include July, which is redundant.

Idiom : More than
Comparison between a member of a group and any other members of the group: any other month

Even though more money was removed out of stock funds in July as in any month since Octover 1987, sales of fund shares in July were not as low as an industry trade group had previously estimated.

(A) as in any month since October 1987, sales of fund shares in July were not as low as
(B) as had been in any other month since October 1987, sales of fund shares in July were not as low as what
(C) than there was in any other month since October 1987, sales of fund shares in July were not as low as that which- which not required.
(D) than in any month since October 1987, sales of fund shares in July were not as low as
(E) than in any other month since October 1987, sales of fund shares in July were not as low as what
Correct option - E

Answer is E.

than is necessary. So eliminate A, B.
that which in C is awkward.
Between D and E, other is required to compare July with all other months. Also, if we don't use what, it becomes wrong comparison. We would be comparing sales of shares with industry group. Hence eliminate D.
