The opening modifier phrase must modify the right entity - rice. Elim A and C and D (D has rice protein and not rice).

Between B and E - higher in quality than wheat compares quality with wheat.

It was between B and E for me. E, however, should have "has" after wheat then it will look so much better.

Please explain why "C" is wrong.

In correct comparison. You are comparing "rice" with "wheat", not "wheat" and "protein".

I think you are right, it should be "does" since "has" is acting as a verb here. Hmmm, you got me thinking... I actually think both are correct, but would like more opinion.

Rice has more protein than wheat has.
or
Rice has more protein then wheat does.

Any takers?

Compare the two sentences below - BOTH ARE CORRECT but employ different forms when it comes to replacing the verb.

I have more Stawberries than he HAS guavas.

Rice has more protein than wheat does.

Rice has more protein than wheat does.


My Take - If has/have used as the main verb, then we should not use has/have in the 2nd sentence. If has/have is used as the auxilary verb, than we can use has/have in the 2nd sentence.

Which one is correct:-
Dwivedy reads faster than I read.
or
Dwivedy reads faster than I do. - I would prefer this one, because it does not repeat the main verb.

Similarly
I have more Stawberries than he HAS.
or
I have more strawberries than he does. I would prefer this one, because it does not repeat the main verb.

Comments please.

Path - I concur with you. However, in my strawberry example - the predicate clause has a different subject (guavas) and that's why has has been repeated (i have more more Strawberries than he HAS Guavas). If I had to say (I have more strawberries than he has strawberries - then I woudl have said ) have more strawberries than he does.)

I noticed slightly different usage in your example of strawberries. So, I had modified it to "I have more Stawberries than he HAS." To imply what you just said.

Thanks.
