The use of gravity waves, which do not interact with matter in the way electromagnetic waves do, hopefully will enable astronomers to study the actual formation of black holes and neutron stars.
(A) in the way electromagnetic waves do, hopefully will enable
(B) in the way electromagnetic waves do, will, it is hoped, enable
(C) like electromagnetic waves, hopefully will enable
(D) like electromagnetic waves, would enable, hopefully
(E) such as electromagnetic waves do, will, it is hoped, enable
I know its quite simple as either A or B sounds good. But why B is a better than A??
A has a misplaced adverb "hopefully". Should be after 'will'.
C,D,E have comparison problems.
"Hopefully" is considered incorrect in many dictionaries (the word does not even exist in many of them), but they claim that expressions such as "It is hopeful that..." or "It is hoped" are a correct way of saying 'hopefully'. Another clear example when our everyday language and standardized tests collide, and create a helluv confusion for us
