Sentence is comparing stress patterns and not "experience" so B and C are out. In A) those is ambiguous. E) has missing verb .

IMO D)

IMO D. The question compare patterns, not experiences, so B and C are wrong. "Those" from A is tricky, could reffer to "girls". In E we don't have a verb.

For me "those" in option A is clear since it follows "that boys experience". and I think it's taking better // structure.

D for me too ,since verb has to match with verb so "patterns(of girls) do" has to match with "patterns(of boys) do" and not just "patterns."
So D has to be the best

E) Stress patterns of boys


"more likely to result in depression" needs a parallel structure for the boys which is taken care of by "do". IMO D.
I would have gone by choice A (based on my ear), but, I think is not gramatically correct.
What is OA?

My pick is D as well.

The Q is testing comparison.

Patterns of stress in girls would result in depression.

We need some thing that compares the stress patterns of boys and also the depression they cause

E only does half of the comparison.

D does the whole comparison.

No ... OA is A.

that X are more likely than Y

so -the patterns of stress that girls experience - has to be paralell to the answer. Read it and A is the only one that fits.

This is GMAT prep btw.

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



My initial pick was A ... but after reading like 10 D answers, it makes me wonder...

But my original assessment was:

Since you're comparing
i) patterns that girls experience and
ii) patterns that boys experience

"those" would be the pronoun for patterns. don't let the "of stress" as a prepositional phrase/modifier throw you off...

to bring the sentence to its core:
"patterns X are more likely to result in depression than are patterns Y"

I'm going to say A.

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.

Simplified:

...that the patterns [strike]of stress[/strike] that girls experience are more likely to result in depression than ___________.

Before looking at the answer choices, you can fill in the blanks on your own:

...that the patterns [strike]of stress[/strike] that girls experience are more likely to result in depression than [the patterns that boys experience].

So, the answer has to reflect this. "A" does this concisely without ambiguity; those = the patterns that boys experience.

"D" looked attractive as well, but it doesn't explicitly mention that boys are experiencing the patterns.
