Is not data a plural noun. How pronoun "it" can refer to data in option C.

The new proposal will encourage larger transparency about what data is being collected and how they will be used, and discourage the need for vaguely worded privacy or user notices.

There is pronoun issue in the original sentence. 'They' is plural, however 'data' is singular in this context as in all the options we have phrase 'data is'.
Also 'greater transparency' is correct expression. 'larger transparency' is wrong.

Let's run POE

A. encourage larger transparency about what data is being collected and how they will be used, and discourages the need for vaguely worded
>> Wrong.

B. encourage greater transparency regarding what data is being collected and how it will be used, but discourage the need of vaguely worded
>> Put on hold

C. encourage greater transparency about what data is being collected and how it will be used, and discourage the need for vaguely worded
>> Put on hold

D. encourage greater transparency on what data is being collected and how it will be used, and this will discourage the need for vaguely worded
>> Wrong because 'this' is wrongly referring to "encourage greater transparency' instead of "new proposal"

E. encourage greater transparency for what data is being collected and how it will be used, and discourages the need for vaguely worded
>> Here is a parallelism issue. "The new proposal will do X and do Y" is the correct form. 'discourages' is wrong here, as it will not show future tense.

Now Out of B & C , B sounds awkward because of "regarding what data is being collected".

Instead "about what data is being collected" sounds correct.

So the correct option is C.

Data is plural and datum is singular. However IMO here "data" is used as a mass noun and that's why "it" is referring to "data"

'data' though technically is a plural noun, however, it is used as both singular and plural.
Confused ? :)

Check this link of the gurdian: http://www.guardian.co.uk/news/datablog/2010/jul/16/data-plural-singular

I following this approach.
If I find it is used as singular in non-underlined portion of a sentence, then surely it is used as singular.
If I find it is used as plural in ............, then it is used as plural.
If options are having all singular, or plural then there is no other choice.
With this approach most of the questions can be answered correctly.

Still, if options are having mix of both, however I cannot eliminated any one with above mentioned approach, then I prefer 'singular' as it is used in American style. 'plural' is used in British style.

A. encourage larger transparency about what data is being collected and how they will be used, and [u]discourages[/u] the need for vaguely worded as IS is used, IT should be used for dta
B. encourage greater transparency regarding what data is being collected and how it will be used, but discourage the need of vaguely worded --AND should be used -- they both mean to support one thing
C. encourage greater transparency about what data is being collected and how it will be used, and discourage the need for vaguely worded
D. encourage greater transparency on what data is being collected and how it will be used, and this will discourage the need for vaguely worded-[color=#7b0046]Seems as if the consequence of 1st clause. Actually both are part of the proposal[/color]
E. encourage greater transparency for what data is being collected and how it will be used, and discourages the need for vaguely worded

I am not sure if transparency about is only correct and other forms like transparency on/ transparency for are wrong. Guys please give some inputs.

Between B and C, I am inclined toward option B as it shows contrasting between two sentences.

My understanding :

The intent : New proposal is coming up with something positive : 1. Encourages X , 2. Discourages Y

It doesn't speak of contrast : Just because encourage & discourage is there = that doesn't imply a Contrast

The new professor encourages teamwork AND discourages nepotism = positive aspect , No contrast , Needs AND

The new professor encourages teamwork BUT discourages sharing of one's problems , Positive & negative aspect , Needs contrast thus BUT

Leading to C , my take

Just came up with some examples of my own:

Example 1: The construction of dam will increase the water level, but decrease the likelihood of flood in the region.
water level and flood is somewhat related so the use of BUT seems OK here. Try to put AND in place of BUT. To me both sounds OK. You can also try plugging the check.

Example 2: Such questions will encourage the discussions among people, and discourage the feeling of fear.
discussions and feeling of fear has no connection so use of AND is better here. Just try putting BUT instead of AND to check. Does it sound good?

This is my attempt of giving a reasoning. Please provide your opinion about it.

Hi Buddy : just above the first post of urs, have jotted my understanding of the problem. The Parallelism stays intact in both B n C, its the CONTRAST concept which I guess is the totem pole of this problem.

C is the answer. Encourage and discourage are parallel; need for is the correct idiom

The new proposal will encourage larger transparency about what data is being collected and how they will be used, and discourage the need for vaguely worded privacy or user notices.
A. encourage larger transparency about what data is being collected and how they will be used, and discourages the need for vaguely worded



the new proposal does two things:
1- encourage greater transparency about what data is being collected and how it will be used
2- discourage the need for vaguely worded privacy or user notices.

error analysis:
larger is used for countable nouns,
transparency is uncountable; hence, greater is needed.
they is used for data.
so, it has pronoun error.

POE:
A) as mentioned
B. encourage greater transparency regarding what data is being collected and how it will be used, but discourage the need of vaguely worded
and--->but: changes the intended meaning
"discourage the need for" not the need of"
transparency regarding----> transparency about

C. encourage greater transparency about what data is being collected and how it will be used, and discourage the need for vaguely worded

D. encourage greater transparency on what data is being collected and how it will be used, and this will discourage the need for vaguely worded
pronoun error, this must be used as adjective. we cannot use it instead of a pronoun.

E. encourage greater transparency for what data is being collected and how it will be used, and discourages the need for vaguely worded
