I pick B. This is similar to the SC about the fast cyclist and the human powered flying machine.

Elim CDE b/c they do not draw the proper comparison.

AB, not really sure why B is correct, just sounds better b/c will is first and this is similar to the previous SC i mentioned.

I would go with A.


OA is B.

The use of 'hopefully' is almost always considered incorrect on the GMAT.

Good SC...I came down to A and B..then choose A.....I read the above comments and saw that "hopefully" is almost always wrong on GMAT. But can some on explain B...its just weird -- "will, it is hoped, enable"

Is there any justification of the usage of "in the way" ? Any other example of the usage from OG or other reliable source...

Press +1 Kudos, if you think my post gave u a tiny tip.
