KUDOS
In the start of the sentence. 'In addition to having more protein -than wheat does,' We are comparing something that contains protein with wheat... and that something should be the first word after the comma. We can cancel out A,C,D as only B & E are correctly comparing rice with wheat.

(B) rice has protein of higher quality than that in
(E) rice has a protein higher in quality than

B is the best formed of the two options.

So B.

Re: Protein Question [#permalink] New post 05 Oct 2010, 13:24
Just a quick clarification. The beginning of the sentence here isn't a comparison, but rather a modifier. A similar example would be:

"The biggest city in the U.S., New York is a fun place to live." ("The biggest city in the U.S." is modifying "New York.")

or

"Believing as he does in the power of positive thinking, Uncle Ray always visualizes winning before he begins his races." ("Believing...thinking" is modifying Uncle Ray.)

What all of these examples have in comma is that the section before the comma is a noun modifier. What Siyer says is therefore correct: Noun modifiers must touch the noun they are intending to modify. Although we rarely start sentences with modifiers when we are speaking, it is grammatically correct to do so.

B

(A) the protein in rice is higher quality than that in - Wrong: the subject must be rice, not "the protein in rice".
(B) rice has protein of higher quality than that in - CORRECT
(C) the protein in rice is higher in quality than it is in - Wrong: the subject must be rice.
(D) rice protein is higher in quality than it is in - Wrong: the same mistake.
(E) rice has a protein higher in quality than - Wrong comparison. Here you have to compare proteins. But in this case, the sentence is comparing rice protein with wheat.

I think I deserve kudos 8-)
