(D) more closely integrated than (these were) ever before and that

Hi experts of comparison,

Here, are we comparing "the world’s capital markets are integrated closely" and "ever before"?
The colored part ( (these were) ) is omitted from the sentence?


It's correct to omit second part of comparison when it is understood. It is called Ellipsis.
Ex:- John can play the guitar better than Mary.

Also, i think (D) more closely integrated than (they were) ever before and that is how it is meant.

This is an incorrect question. The correct version is posted below -
The financial crash of October 1987 demonstrated that the world’s capital markets are integrated more closely than never before and events in one part of the global village may be transmitted to the rest of the village—almost instantaneously.

(A) integrated more closely than never before and
(B) closely integrated more than ever before so
(C) more closely integrated as never before while
(D) more closely integrated than ever before and that
(E) more than ever before closely integrated as

For this question OA is D

Expert's post
Let me also join the fray; between A and D.

If the first sentence says “than ever before”, then this is indeed a deep question and my reasoning would be this for voting A.

You can see a subtle comparison in the sentence: -The financial crash of October 1987 demonstrated that the world’s capital markets are integrated ‘more closely than ever before’ – This comparison as signified by the adverb 'more closely’ pertains to the integration in 1987 to the integration any time before. In other words, the integration was there before 1987 and was therefore in 1987 and only the depth differed. Therefore, it will not be ideal to separate more closely from than ever before. D faults on this important implied meaning of the text by allowing the intrusion of the verb ‘integrated’

If on the contrary, the first choice says ‘than never before’, then this is simple test of maintaining the relative pronoun //ism and the answer will be obviously D.
I do not wish to analyze how the original differs from this post, especially after the poster has said that he has made some changes. I am trying to look at the given topic per se and go about it. For all that b14kumar’s version is much better IMO

I have a problem here, I think the part "events in one part of the global village may be transmitted to the rest of the village" is a result of "world’s capital markets are [u]integrated more closely than ever before" , so, they should not be parallel , ans "so" can be true(instead of that). Am I wrong? can anyone explain please?
