a sure shot B.

nice use of parallelism - between page 6 and page seven.
also - it correctly compares the sentences, by using "those of"

Yes B.

we are comparing pages so that reasoning eliminates A, C and D.
E compares senstences with page six so E is out.

Sorry to disappoint you folks. According Kaplan, the correct response is E. This question is from its GMAT Qbank.

Here is its explanation: As written, the initial clause <i>in addition to containing more sentences than page six does,</i> modifies the nearest noun. By making <i>sentences</i> the noun modified, choices (A), (C) and (D) incorrectly compare <i>sentences</i> and <i>page six</i>.

(B) and (E) both make the proper modification, but only answer choice (E) makes a valid comparison between <i>page six</i> and <i>page seven</i> and does it in a concise manner. Therefore, (E) is the correct choice.


Like yours, my original response was also B. However, Kaplan's position confounds me. Could anyone shed some light?

if the question is as it is, the correct one is B. E cannot be correct one because it has faulty comparisions between sentences and page six.

i think the question is not posted properly. if it is, then E cannot be the OA. make sure the question is correct.

The question is replicated letter to letter. I've verified again, and I have not found any error in posting.

Since many of us have the same opinion that E is wrong and B is the best, I'll bring the issue to Kaplan and ask for an explanation.

I'll keep you folks posted.

The only way E would have been good was if it had "does" after page six so as to make the proper comparison between same elements. Since it does not, only B makes the right comparison and E is clearly wrong. I'd be surprised if Kaplan did not acknowledge its error.

Kaplan is not yielding to us. It still sticks to choice E as the best answer.

Its response:
Choices (B) and (E) are indeed close, but choice (E) is the better choice. In this case, "than" serves as a conjunction that allows this comparison to be valid. When we have "than" prior to the noun "page six", it implies the ellipsis of "has" after "page six". Therefore, as both a more concise and accurate answer, choice (E) is valid here.

So, the sentence would like this:
In addition to containing more sentences than page six does, page seven has sentences more understandable than page six [has], with better words and grammar.

Here, the ellipsis of "has" is implied.

Any thoughts?

i do not agree with kaplan. the answer is a sure (B).

sometimes i do not trust the answers given in the kaplan verbal section. only yesterday in a kaplan test i did, kaplan preferred '...consider to be' to '...consider'
