Request you to clarify the following doubt.
I understand that "That" can act as a relative pronoun and hence modify noun/noun phrase. Here is one option from GMAT PREP and would like to understand how the usage of "that" is correct here. Japan’s population is shrinking faster than that of any other nation.
What "That" is referring to.
a)Is it Japan's population. If this is the case then the sentence would be illogical.
b) If it is referring to "Population", then how do we make sure what it is referring to.
Please post your reasoning.
