Hello friends,

this is my first post so kindly bear with me for any errors...

one SC question i have

441. It is as difficult to prevent crimes against property as those that are against a person.
(A) those that are against a
(B) those against a
(C) it is against a
(D) preventing those against a
(E) it is to prevent those against a

i personally thought A as the answer as crimes is plural so that will come as well as that is stressing on the kind of crimes...

Please let me know if am wrong in this.

those is plural of that here.. crimes against X and that against Y is wrong.. (that makes the second entity singular) crimes against X and those against Y ( Here those is a relative pronoun standing for crimes against Y)

in A you are using both those and that - redundant and wrong

To decide on right answer you have to ensure parallelism in comparsion:

It is as difficult to ............. as it is to............. is correct and parallel form
you are comparing difficulties of controlling the two kinds of crimes, not the crimes themselves

let me know if any further doubt.

and yes, welcome to the club

and the below one...i again thought it to be C but it was B

Q) It may be that by focusing primarily on a patient’s mental condition and on vague and often very speculative psychodynamic factors, predictions about the patient’s future behavior decrease in accuracy.
(A) predictions about the patient’s future behavior decrease in accuracy
(B) mental health professionals lessen the accuracy of their predictions about the patient’s future behavior
(C) the accuracy of predictions about the patient’s future behavior lessens
(D) a decrease in accuracy is seen in predictions about the patient’s future behavior can be predicted less accurately
(E) the patient’s future behavior can be predicted less accurately
