Why "B" is wrong [#permalink] New post 23 Jun 2003, 21:35
In my oppinion "B" is wrong because "in others" comes after "and". It has to be before the "and" to reference "some countries".

"in others" is misplaced in (b). To keep the parallel construction, "in others" needs to come at the end of the clause, as it does in (a).
