Re: Halley's comet [#permalink] New post 19 Sep 2011, 19:23
I was just doing sentence correction in the OG 12 book earlier today and saw that you posted this question. Anyway, at first glance I would say that D (its return of 1910-1911 did) was indeed the correct answer. However, after further review, this is incorrect though. D here is implying that we are making a comparison between the comet and its return. The correct answer here is C based on OG answer explantion. Unlike answer D, choice C grammatically compares the correct parallel prepositional phases: in no other sighting and in its return in 1910-1911. Therefore C correctly compares the times the comet is sighted.

Concept tested: Parallelism, Verb tenses, ellipses
Difficulty:750
Illustration: Lets take a look at elliptical construction before going for the solution.
Consider the following sentence:
In no other play did William Shakespeare cause such a spectacle as Hamlet.
This is ambiguous. there are two possible interpretations:
(1) ...as IN Hamlet (this is analogous to the intended meaning of the posted problem)
(2) ...as DID Hamlet (i.e., you're comparing the spectacle caused by Shakespeare to the spectacle caused by Hamlet himself).
So we need the “in” to clarify the intended meaning.
Now lets look at the options.
Only C coincides with the concept that is tested above.
C is the correct answer.

Sorry souvik but the sentence is underlined in a wrong manner. Of course is a a small error but changes the understanding of the same

In no other historical sighting did Halley’s Comet cause such a worldwide sensation AS did its return in 1910–1911.

(A) did its return in 1910–1911
(B) had its 1910–1911 return
(C) in its return of 1910–1911
(D) its return of 1910–1911 did
(E) its return in 1910–1911

here we compare two times about halley's sight. The phrase begins with IN so the second part must beging with IN.

C is correct

difficult to understand Souvik can u explain each answer choice pls

what is the concept you didn't understant


I understand that the construction is elliptical type.

Finding it difficult to eliminate option basis on did and in.
i understand that in is a form of //rism hence its correct,

We need to compare the sensations that other sighting in the history brought to the sensation which the sighting of comet's brought in the year 1910 -1911.

Now understanding this when i go through the options.

(A) did its return in 1910–1911>>>>>Did stands for sensation, hence i feel that sensation after sighting in 1910 - 1911 is being compared >>>>>>>>>which is correct.
(B) had its 1910–1911 return....This is out, had is not correct when it comes along with a recent event in past ,comparisons of two past event
(C) in its return of 1910–1911
(D) its return of 1910–1911 did>>>>>can be rephrased as " its return of 1910 - 1911 caused", if the implied meaning of caused is sensation than can be considered right.......have doubt in it how to eliminate.
(E) its return in 1910–1911>>>>>this can be rephrased as "In no other historical sighting did Halley’s Comet cause such a worldwide sensation as hailey's comet (its) return in 1910 -1911">>>>> which is also correct as it compares the past historical sighting to the sighting in 1910 - 1911

pls help me with my above explanations.

Also pls help me with the use of "its" as possessive pronoun..... Is Worlwide sensation a noun, which i think it isnt, its an adverbial phrase.... Correct me if i am wrong

Re: In no other historical sighting did Halley s Comet cause [#permalink] New post 06 Dec 2012, 21:08
I think this very hard.

the problem is that the correct meaning is

in the first part, commet causes sensation

in the second part, commet causes sensation, not the "commet's return" cause the sensation

the distorted meaning is "commet's return" cause the sensation.

try to infer the intended meaning.

2.In various forums its mentioned as becoz of parallelism also the option C is chosen as right answer.Can someone help me in undertstanding these two doubts i have on this question..

Hi Skamal,

Yes you are right "as" is indicating a comparison. The comparison is between the events "In no other historical sighting" and "In its return in 1910 - 1911"

In the question the parallel structures will be the two prepositional phrases. I would say that the question is more a comparison question than a parallelism one.

Apart from (C) other options are comparing "its return" with " In no other historical sighting"

As the question has been discussed several times I'll try a different approach. Let us form a simple question on similar grounds.

In no other public occasion I felt estranged as did my own wedding with Julia.

(A) did my own wedding with Julia
(B) had my wedding with Julia
(C) in my own wedding with Julia
(D) my own wedding with Julia did
(E) my own wedding with Julia


The above question contains a similar comparison and the answers have the same errors. What it does not contain is the middle part that the original sentence has which makes the two comparison elements far from each other. (C) clearly stands out as a winner.

In the above question the parallelism (if any) is between the two prepositional phrases - "In no other public occasion" and "in my own wedding with Julia". To sum up it is just a simple comparison question.


Hope that helps,

Vercules

for ans E , OG says "This sentence violates parallelism, implying a comparison between a prepositional phrase and a noun phrase."

In no other historical sighting did Halley’s Comet
cause such a worldwide sensation as did its return in
1910–1911.
(A) did its return in 1910–1911
(B) had its 1910–1911 return
(C) in its return of 1910–1911
(D) its return of 1910–1911 did
(E) its return in 1910–1911

I thnik did is implied in E (at the end ), so it becomes "in 1910-1911 did " which is a prepositional phrase.

can this concept be clarified?

thx

Hi eski

Lets consider (E) and see what structures are being compared.

In no other historical sighting did Halley’s Comet cause such a worldwide sensation as its return in 1910-1911 did.

The bolded portions in the above sentence are being compared.

In no other historical sighting --> prepositional phrase

its return in 1910-1911 --> a noun phrase or actually just a noun "return"


Another correct form of the sentence could be,

In no other historical sightings did Halley's Comet cause such a worldwide sensation as it did when it returned in 1910-1911.

The above sentence correctly compares "Halley's Comet cause" with "as it did" (it stands for Halley's comet and did stands for caused.

As the question has been discussed several times I'll try a different approach. Let us form a simple question on similar grounds so that we can identify the structures used in the sentence.

In no other public occasion I felt estranged as did my own wedding with Julia.

(A) did my own wedding with Julia
(B) had my wedding with Julia
(C) in my own wedding with Julia
(D) my own wedding with Julia did
(E) my own wedding with Julia


By removing the unnecessary words that are meant to confuse the test taker we can understand the meaning better.

In (E) "In no other public occasion" is compared with "my own wedding with Julia"; even if we add a "did" at the end, the comparison will not be proper.

Quote:
I think did is implied in E (at the end ), so it becomes "in 1910-1911 did " which is a prepositional phrase.


"in 1910-1911" is a prepositional phrase but "in 1910-1911 did" isn't. There are two parts of a prepositional phrase

i) preposition ii) object of the preposition

there is no verb in a prepositional phrase. Putting "did" in (E) will make it a clause, so again the comparison will be incorrect (Prepositional phrase with clause)

Hope that helps,

Vercules

Hi Vercules

Lets take your example

Q. In no other public occasion I felt estranged as did my own wedding with Julia.

(A) did my own wedding with Julia
(B) had my wedding with Julia
(C) in my own wedding with Julia
(D) my own wedding with Julia did
(E) my own wedding with Julia

The whole statement , without omission is :
In no other public occasion I felt estranged as in my own wedding with Julia .

So comparision is between "on other public occasion" v/s "in my own wedding" both are preposition phase

Have I got the concept till this point?

if Yes, now if we take following statement:
In no other public occasion I felt estranged as own wedding with Julia .

is this a right construction , here 'in my' is omitted , is it implied?
if implied , then , as compares "on other public occasion" v/s "in my own wedding"
if no , then , as compares "on other public occasion" v/s "own wedding" -- which is wrong I guess .

Hi eski,

Please see my comments in blue.

Q. In no other public occasion I felt estranged as did my own wedding with Julia.

(A) did my own wedding with Julia
(B) had my wedding with Julia
(C) in my own wedding with Julia
(D) my own wedding with Julia did
(E) my own wedding with Julia

The whole statement , without omission is :
In no other public occasion I felt estranged as in my own wedding with Julia .

Quote:

No, the comparison is between "In no other public occasion" with "in my own wedding"

Quote:
Have I got the concept till this point?

if Yes, now if we take following statement:
In no other public occasion I felt estranged as own wedding with Julia .

is this a right construction , here 'in my' is omitted , is it implied?


No, "in my" is not implied. When we omit a word or few then the meaning of the sentence does not change even after omitting. But in this case if you omit "in my" then the comparison becomes incorrect.

Quote:
if implied , then , as compares "on other public occasion" v/s "in my own wedding"


Again the comparison is between "In no other public occasion" and "in my own wedding"

Quote:
if no , then , as compares "on other public occasion" v/s "own wedding" -- which is wrong I guess .


Yes, but as compares "In no other public occasion" with "own wedding", this comparison is clearly incorrect.

Hope that helps,

The comet caused some sensation in 1910-1911. This sensation is compared to a similar sensation in any other such event If you have to elaborate it, then you have to say that in no other historical event, did Halley’s comet caused such a great sensation as it did in its return in the cited year. Here the phrase ‘it did ‘is elliptic and understood.
The parallelism part arises in the use of the preposition - in – in both arms of the comparison; Only C does it.

Re: In no other historical sighting did Halley s comet cause [#permalink] New post 09 Mar 2013, 07:13
As per my understanding on the usage of "AS" it compares two clauses right? If that is the case then this sentence should copare two clauses right? but am not able to see the clause in the second part of "as" comparison becoz it has no main verb ..

can someone clarify this to me...
