I agree with Stolyar. UCLA guy is easy to read.


There has been a 30 to 40-fold ( increase in the incidence of malaria caused by increasing mosquito resistance against) pesticides.

What does " caused by...." modify. ?

b) increase in the incidence of malaria because of increasing resistance of mosquitos to.

What does "Because of increasing resistance of mosquitos to" modify?
I say increase. But what about what modifies "incidence of malaria".?

Take out the "because of" so you can just look at the subject. Resistance is the subject of the clause. It is not correct to say "resistance against" - it's redundant. That's the biggest reason why (A) is wrong here. "Resistance to" is the proper term.

increase in the incidence of malaria is modified by because. I think, not just incidence. Do contrasting words such as because not likely modify the word in front of it?

What does " caused by...." modify. ?


Thanks
