Re: SC awkward ? [#permalink] New post 24 Mar 2011, 00:24
agree its an awkward but the god thng is it boils dwn to options A and B, rest all seem to suggest the zones themselves are the prciples.
it in A can refer to priciple or urban developmnt.
also B shows the contrast by using but. so went for b though it dorsnt sound good.

While musing over the topic, I had only one thought in front. The urban zones are not a new principle ‘but’ an old one. There is a contrast manifest in the clause. Hence the choice falls on either B or D. IMO B is better because, physical things such as zones may not become as such a new principle but at best may represent a new principle.

+1 B

It keeps the meaning and sense of the sentence.

+1 for B. As the topic suggest, it is a odds and end question, but more than that it is a meaning questions. Only B reflects the intended meaning of the sentence.
