Patterns of stress that girls experience are likely to result in depression.
Patterns of stress(=those) that boys experience are (likely to result in depression.)

A looks good.
It makes the comparison logical : the patterns of stress that girls experience.....than are those (patterns of stress) that boys experience.

Hi E-Gmat,

I saw your explanation on grammatical parallelism and logical parallelism. Can we apply this rule here in this question?

Choice D and E have no verb; hence, these are not clauses

If we see the first part of the comparison which is a clause. So, we should have a clause in the second part of the comparison?

The easiest way to crack comparison questions is to understand what is being compared.
patterns of stress that girls experience are more likely to result in depression than are those that boys experience.

What is being compared? 'patterns of stress that girls experience'
What can be parallel to the same? 'patters of stress that boys experience'
What is closest to the above structure? 'those that boys experience'

If you worry about clauses etc. in such questions, you will end up hunting for SV pairs (and wasting some important seconds). Let's say, if you are able to identify the clause too, you will still end up finding the correct comparison by the above method (no other go). A little pre-thinking will help you arrive at the correct option much faster.

Hi Sivsanjeev,


But if we think about the meaning of the sentence then both Choice A and E make sense. How to approach these kind of questions? How can I eliminate choice E here?

Thanks !!

a very nice question which I want to follow.

Many teenagers undergo stress, but results of a recent study indicate that the patterns of stress that girls experience are more likely to result in depression than are those that boys experience.

A) are those that boys experience
B) what boys experience
C) boys' experience would
D) boys' stress patterns do
E) Stress patterns of boys

B
the possibility of ambiguity is : result in depression more than result in what boy experience. b is out
C
if there is a helping verb in the second half of comparison, there must be the same helping verb in the first half though the tense if the helping verb in the first half can be different. there is no will,would in the first half. c is out. (for more on this point pls, read "ron' note at beatthegmat forum"
D
"do" means "pattern result in". not logic
E
ambiguity similar to B

The comparison in E is ambiguous.

Let's look at the main comparison here. Plugging in E yields:
The patterns of stress that girls experience are more likely to result in depression than the stress patterns of boys.

There is no verb attached to "the stress patterns of boys" assure that the likelihoods of resulting in depression are compared.

So two interpretations are possible: the stress patterns of boys "are" also likely to result in depression (but not as much as those of girls are), or
The stress patterns of girls can cause either depression or the stress patterns of boys.

Option A resolves the ambiguity by including the verb.
