I understand that we've very subtle difference between C & D but the correct idiom is broader X than Y...
In D => broader range of dance styles than the current curriculum
in C => broader range of dance styles with more creative latitude thanthe current curriculum
Hence D is my answer.

D is the best of the lot... but still ", and" troubles me...
To the best of my knowledge ", and" can by replaced with ;
this means the clause after semi colon should be an independent clause.

Can an expert please clarify on this??

Hi,

I think D is best in all of the options mentioned

But i still feel that may be D could have been better worded if "with more creative latitude" (acting as a prep. modifier modifying dance styles) was placed next to "broader range of dance styles".

Also Capricorn pls correct me here...i think option C changes the meaning of the original sentence.

Thanks

Yeah C changes the meaning. also "with more creative latitude" is modifying new choreography methodology i suppose. :)

Expert's post
I feel D is significantly better; C not only changes the meaning by calling development as the new development but also lacks proper comparison in that it directly compares the capability of the new methodology with the current curriculum itself, rather than its capability. D outsmarts C in these two aspects.
In C the idiomatic template is still broader X than Y, considering the modifying prepositional phrase ‘with more creative latitude’ is part of the noun phrase ‘dance styles’ hence C cannot be dumped on that count.

But I totally agree with jsahni123, that the prepositional phrase ‘with more creative latitude’ should go along with dancing styles, rather than with curriculum or methodology or development or as an independent phrase. IMO, the dancing styles have been turned broader because of they are now rendered with more creative latitude in the development of new choreography methodology. That is the reason we have to vote D half-heartedly as ‘the best among the lot’

D is correct.
One important reason is the comparison: will be able to accommodate a broader range of dance styles than the current curriculum can.
Without the 'can', you are comparing the ability to accommodate a broader range of dance styles to the curriculum itself.

Thanks everyone !

Well ,like many of you - i still doubt on this prepositional phrase -with more creative latitude with ,and

I understand can & some meaning change is there in (C) but then ,and +prep phrase - never seen this kind of construct.

We can not use "That" here...because....

The development of the new choreography methodology that is anticipated - This conveys that there are more that one new choreography methodology and we are talking abt the one "That is anticipated to do something"

But when you say

The development of the new choreography methodology,Which is blah blah blah, - we are talking about one new methodology which is expected to something.

Examples :
She never wins her cases that involve the IRS
She never wins her cases, which involve the IRS,

Hope this helps.

@jsahni123 - Yes, it does change the meaning.

I still haven't understood how C has changed the meaning of the sentence. Could someone please explain what does D in contrast to C wants to imply?
Thanks

The subject in C is "the new development" and it does not make sense to say that the "development" itself "will be able to accommodate a broader range of dance styles with more creative latitude than the current curriculum". It is not the development of the choreography methodology but the choreography methodology itself which performs the action.

This Question has same structure as that of question in OG 11 #103.

I believe the source of this question is either Grockit or Knewton.
