OA is C on this one.
thanks for all the explanations
can someone help me in understanding future sentences which will be like the one in this question.
when i read the sentence i read it in this meaning
the actual votes provide more accurate picture of their attitude and provide a less accurate picture of their speeches.
but its actually a comparison between the actual votes and the speeches. Which one provides an accurate picture of the attitudes.
my questions is ....is it just by understanding the meaning of the sentence we should be able to differentiate between the two meanings or is there a grammatical way.
neeshpal, grammatically, the "than" should tip you off. You're comparing the first half of the sentence to the second, which means you're comparing the votes to the speeches. You kind of assumed the "less accurate picture" part, the sentence didn't say anything about less of something.
By the way, love the smiley face banging it's head against the wall, I could've used that more than a few times during my GMAT journey.
