A. as that which is being emitted annually by all – that which is redundant and being emitted is inelegant.
B. as much annually as is emitted by the – annually can not be separated from emitted; as much annually as is emitted is wrong word order.
C .as much compared to what is annually emitted by all – wrong idiom; a comparison stared with -as- should be completed with- as [/b]-
D. than emitted annually by all – perfect parallelism and crisp language ; amount of pollutant [b]emitted annually by vehicles at O’Hare International Airport is matched by that emitted annually by all motor vehicles – This is the tight choice

E. that emitted annually compared to the – wrong; comparing emission with motor vehicles.

D.

A, B and C fail to use 'as much as' correctly with proper comparisons.

E compares that emitted to the vehicles.

Is "twice" the parallel marker/tag?

What is the problem with A?
It has the right idiom, and as far as I can tell it's just a little wordy.
Is that it?

Hello ron34

A is wrong because

1. Parallel:
The syntax is: X is twice Y <= X and Y must be parallel, if X is noun phrase, Y should be noun phrase too. Let see what X is. X = total amount of pollutant emitted annually by vehicles. This is noun phrase. But Y = that which is being emitted....... This is a clause (has both subject and verb). The parallel structure is not maintained.

2. Grammar:
"that which" is considered unidiomatic in GMAT.

Hope it helps.

Providing initial evidence that airports are a larger source of pollution than they were once believed to be,environmentalists in Chicago report that the total amount of pollutant emitted annually by vehicles at O'hare International Airport is twice as that which is being emitted annually by all motor vehicles in the Chicago metropolitan area.

A.as that which is being emitted annually by all

A is wrong because of parallelism issues. 'pollutant emitted' is not parallel to 'being emitted'. Secondly, usage of 'that which' is incorrect and awkward.

A.as that which is being emitted annually by all
B.as much annually as is emitted by the
C.as much compared to what is annually emitted y all
D.that emitted annually by all
E.that emitted annually compared to the


The comparison is between amount of pollutant emitted annually by vehicles at airport and amount of pollutant emitted by all motor vehicles in metro area.

A.as that which is being emitted annually by all that and which are redundant
B.as much annually as is emitted by the 'annually' should be after 'emitted'
C.as much compared to what is annually emitted y all compared to what is not the right idiom
D.that emitted annually by all correct choice as it compares 'amount' of both elements
E.that emitted annually compared to the 'compared to the motor vehicle' is wrong comparison

it takes me a long time to find how b is wrong.

b is a comparison so we apply the parallel rule here. comparison must be in paralel form.

there is no " is emitted" in preceding clause. so we can not use "is emitted" at the second part of comparison. application of paralelism to comparison is simple but help us to see. meaningly, "is " dose not go with "emitted" but go with subject of the second part of comparison

we should use "that emitted....... IS " because the first part we have "amount ... emitted".

takeaway
focus on what are compared and apply paralelism to the writing.

too hard

"is " in the first part of comparison belongs to amount . "is" in the second part belongs to "emitted" . not parallel logically

GMAT adds unnecessary words in sentences to confuse test takers and waste their time.
The sentence in this question can be reduced to a clean, crisp one line by removing all the crap. See for your self.

Providing initial evidence that airports are a larger source of pollution than they were once believed to be,environmentalists in Chicago report that the total amount of pollutant emitted annually by vehicles at O'hare International Airport "X" is twice as that which is being emitted annually by all motor vehicles in the Chicago metropolitan area. "Y"

Now you can easily come to the correct choice D
The total amount of pollutant emitted annually by vehicles at X is twice that emitted annually by vehicles in Y.

E.that emitted annually compared to the
