Looks like A.
(A) in the way electromagnetic waves do, hopefully will enable
CORRECT
(B) in the way electromagnetic waves do, will, it is hoped, enable
"it is hoped"..incorrect use of pronoun
(C) like electromagnetic waves, hopefully will enable
Like should be used to compare nouns.Here we are comparing "use of gravity waves" with "electro waves" which is wrong
(D) like electromagnetic waves, would enable, hopefully
Same as D
(E) such as electromagnetic waves do, will, it is hoped, enable
"Such as" should be used for examples. not to compare 2 actions

Re: SC + Electromagnetic waves [#permalink] New post 13 Jan 2006, 18:01
B is the correct.

"hopefully" is always wrong in formal written english, however it could be correct in spoken. so A, C and D are incorrect. E doesnot convey the intended meaning of the sentence. so only B makes sense.

I have seen this pattern before in several other SCs. (B) should be correct.
