My decision is between A and C, I think A is correct, because there is some gramatical reasoning to why it can represent only energy

So from ALL the bad choices, if I had to pick the best of the worst, I will pick D ..

What is the source of this question?

All choices are wrong....

Here is my explaination...

A. while in Germany it is just over 33 percent

- OUT wrong usage of IT. IT seems to refer to "75 percent of the energy". So if we try to replace IT with its subject, meaning changes completely.

B. compared to Germany, which uses just over 33 percent
- OUT 33% of what???
C. whereas nuclear power accounts for just over 33 percent of the energy produced in Germany
- OUT, means nuclear power (anywhere or everwhere) accounts for 33% of energy producted in germany...
D. whereas just over 33 percent of the energy comes from nuclear power in Germany
- 33% of energy of what country comes from nuclear power in germany...
E. compared with the energy from nuclear power in Germany, where it is just over 33 percent
- OUT comapring the amount of energy with energy...

I'd go with D on this one.
I know what ETS would say about why A isn't the best choice, but anyone with double digit I.Q. would know that the pronoun 'it' in A refers to the portion of energy that is generated from nuclear plants, not anything else as how ETS would argue to justify their answer.

On the test, I'd pick D, but I don't see anything wrong with A.

The oa is D, which builds a parallel structure to the first half of the sentence.

KUDOS
FYI

Checked my GMATPrep and the correct answer is C.

D is ambiguous because it suggests that 33% of the energy produced in France comes from nuclear power in Germany!

Guys

I marked D

But Correct answer is C

Official explanation says D changes the meaning--says 33% of energy from Nuclear Power in Germany Come from France.

My question is how the article 'the' before energy in Option D indicate energy (33) comes from France in the second part of the sentence

But the article 'the' before energy in Option C indicate energy(33%) comes from Germany in the second part of the sentence

This is a very good "meaning" question.
I picked D initially but a careful review revealed that D indeed changes the meaning
We need to compare energy source in France with energy source in Germany.

Still don't get it. How does D change the meaning? Can any expert shed light on this?

Thanks.

I can try. 33% energy comes from nuclear power doesn't cover the fact that the energy is also produced in Germany. It is not getting it from neighboring countries.

"C" covers that fact.

I picked C.

The energy is produced in Germany, the energy doesn't come from Germany....option D is out.

+1 for C.

D is incorrect because of ambiguous meaning.

That doesn't disqualify answer choice C, though. Nuclear power in general accounts for 75 percent of the energy produced in France, 33 percent of the energy produced in Germany, 10 percent of the energy produced in the USA... see where I'm going with this?

Had picked D. But realize that C is probably correct.
