> Spot the Concept Being Tested:
Comparisons: Look for 祖omparative triggers.・
In this case 斗ess than・is a comparative trigger comparing 奏he cost・to 舛ountry Y.・br> Decide on a Fix:
The rule for Comparisons is that they must compare things that are similar or the same and they must be balanced.
In this case the cost and the country are not similar.
We must correct to make 奏he cost・compared to something similar, such as another cost.
A, B and E all repeat the error of the improper comparison.
Eliminate A, B, and E.
Chunk and Compare:
Compare C to D.
The first difference is 訴s・in Choice C versus 蘇as been・in Choice D.
When making this decision we remember our Verb rule; Actions in two time different frames must be distinguished by use of terms that indicate time or by use of the 塗ave + verb・form.
In this case we are not dealing with two different time periods, and the have + verb form is inappropriate.
