IMO B.
A , E wrong -- 'it' is singular ... plural subject is needed.
C is wrong --- same subject (singular) as it is in A, E
D is also wrong for subject issue.

IMO C.

I guess in C the one referes to principle..not to urban development zones. Cealrly saying the principle was applied before not the urban devcelopment zones.

Though I cannt say why B is incorrect.

I will go with A.


"It" refers to principle ..

zones don't represent a new priciple; <It>The principle was employed in "O Bootstrap..." in puerto Rico

B is awkward.

C,D --> zones.. are.. principle --> illogical.. zones can't be principles.
E --> distorts the meaning.

B looks good. All other options have pronoun reference issue.

My say is A, becuase -
[list=]Underlined text was employed is Singular. Here "it" is referring to the propsed velopment plan which is singular. [/list]

I chucked out A,C and E on the basis that they use semi colon post which a new sentence should make sense..
Between B & D, I chose D on the basis that we need a verb.. so, "zones are"

OA is B....Please somebody tell me why is it not D??

+1 B

Idiom: not...., but....
Parallelism is better in this sentence.

C, D and E are clearly out as "zones are not phenomena, they may represent a pattern or a phenomena". Now between A and B, I can't believe how come people are going with B. In B the sentence is like "X represent not Y". Can it ever be correct? Let's get to the basics: tense? Shouldn't this be "X do not represent Y". Although I agree that A is not the best formed sentence possible, it's best among all.

What's the OA on this one? I go with A, they do not represent a new principle. It refers to the principle so saying 'it was employed in Puerto Rico is perfectly fine'

Happy to discuss further

Cheers :)

The zones are clearly not a new priinciple but represent one. Only A and B stand. In A 'it' does not have a clear antecedent. Therefore, only B stands. But is correct coordinating cojunction in B and parallelism is mantained throught the sentence.

Answer: B

I think it should be A because "it" refers to the principle and not the "Zones"
B,C,D and E sound awkward
