a)In contrast to the declarations made at previous UN climate change conferences, the third Conference of the Parties' Kyoto Protocol created legally binding obligations as a result of intensive negotiations among both developed and developing nations.

b)In contrast to the declarations made at previous UN climate change conferences, the third Conference of the Parties had intensive negotiations among both developed and developing nations, creating legally binding obligations in their Kyoto Protocol. - CORRECT

c)When compared with the declarations made at previous UN climate change conferences, the third Conference of the Parties had intensive negotiations among both developed and developing nations creating legally binding obligations in the Kyoto Protocol. Participle is modifying Nations instead of Action in the previous clause. Thus Incorrect

d)Compared with the declarations made at previous UN climate change conferences, the third Conference of the Parties had intensive negotiations among both developed and developing nations creating legally binding obligations in the Kyoto Protocol. Participle is modifying Nations instead of Action in the previous clause. Thus Incorrect

e)Compared to the declarations made at previous UN climate change conferences, the intensive third Conference of the Parties' negotiations among both developed and developing nations led to the creating of the Kyoto Protocol's legally binding obligations. - Intensive is modifying Conference instead of Negotiations. Noun (Creation) should be a used instead of Creating

IMO answer should be B.

Marcab you are correct that "In contrast to declarations ......, the third conference..." does not complete sense, but this error is present in every option. So option B is the best among the worst.

Error analysis :
In contrast to the declarations made at previous UN climate change conferences, the third Conference of the Parties' Kyoto Protocol created (Created can't be verb here as the third conference can't itself creates legally binding obligations ; Hence it is illogical here) legally binding obligations as a result of intensive negotiations among both developed and developing nations


a)In contrast to the declarations made at previous UN climate change conferences, the third Conference of the Parties' Kyoto Protocol created legally binding obligations as a result of intensive negotiations among both developed and developing nations. ;Incorrect ( reason discussed above)

b)In contrast to the declarations made at previous UN climate change conferences, the third Conference of the Parties had intensive negotiations among both developed and developing nations, creating legally binding obligations in their Kyoto Protocol. :Correct ( Sentence modified and now its more clear )

c)When compared with ( When compared with is wrong idiom) the declarations made at previous UN climate change conferences, the third Conference of the Parties had intensive negotiations among both developed and developing nations creating legally binding obligations in the Kyoto Protocol. (Creating modifying the nations ; meaning changed from original sentence ) :Incorrect

d)Compared with the declarations made at previous UN climate change conferences, the third Conference of the Parties had intensive negotiations among both developed and developing nations creating legally binding obligations in the Kyoto Protocol. [color=#ff0000]( same error as option C has ) :Incorrect
[/color]
e)Compared to the declarations made at previous UN climate change conferences, the intensive (here " intensive " modifies the third conference instead of negotiations) third Conference of the Parties' negotiations among both developed and developing nations led to the creating (poorly written ) of the Kyoto Protocol's legally binding obligations. : Incorrect (meaning changed )

Honestly I feel, none of the answer choices are correct.
How can B be correct? In contrast to declarations ......, the third conference...????

I'd go with E since it is the only one that compares two things logically by comparing the declarations to the negotiations.

Compared to the declarations made at previous UN climate change conferences, the intensive third Conference of the Parties' negotiations

However, the rest of the sentence doesn't read well so I don't think it is the correct answer.

All other options a through d make illogical comparisons IMO.

One more itching issue in this thread that is is as blatant as the mis-comparison, is the dilemma of choosing either 'between' or 'among' Now all the choices say uniformly that negotiations were held among both the developed and the developing nations. My point is that it can be a free for all random negotiation among the nations, such as the developed and the developing. But that is fair enough when you do not give the nations a brand –tag and the entire group is one mass. But when you categorize them into two distinct and identifiable sides, then the issue becomes between rather than among.

Why isn’t there even one single choice that uses the prep –between-?

I would go with E because you are comparing "Declarations" with "Negotiations" and that makes the comparison right.

Hence, IMO Answer is E

I think comma is missing in "C" before "creating" Had there been a comma, the word "creating" would have modified the previous action. Also, here, comparison is made instead of contrasting the conferences. This sounds much better.

So I will go with C (with minor change)
