I'll go with A)

Between A) & B) ... A uses the correct idiom "allow for" (besides the parallel structure with "to stabilize").

Added: On second thoughts, D looks tempting too. But I'll stick with A and read other responses.

My guess is B.

A sounds awkward and D needs to maintain parallelism to stabilize in order to complete the prediction.

Curious what the OA is?

Between A and B, I would choose B. "Which" in A to me is ambiguous, and hence I would go with B.

Id go with B!

I'll go for B.

IMO A and D are out cause the use of which. which is refering to day which is
awkward.

B is ok..to increase.......and to stabilize.

C is out cause it's not parallell
E-don't really know why?

go with answer B.

The yield of natural gas from Norway’s Troil gas field is expected to increase annually until the year 2005 and then to stabilize at six billion cubic feet a day, an extraction rate that will allow at least 50 years’ production

the conjunction "and" is essential and need to use "to stabilize" for llism with "to increase". the clause "which will allow" in A is incorrect.

B. I also prefer B over D.

"an extraction rate that will allow ........" clearly modifies the preceding clause "The yield of natural gas from Norway’s Troll gas field is expected (to increase annually until the year 2005 and then) to stabilize at six billion cubic feet a day".

C, D, E are out - stabilizing is not in parallel with "to increase"

Close call between A & B.

A seems verbose but I think B is distorting the meaning of the clause.

However, I will go with B since it is the concise form of the sentence.

I will go with B, although D was a conteder

The yield of natural gas from Norway’s Troll gas field is expected to increase annually until the year 2005 and then to stabilize at six billion cubic feet a day , which will allow such an extraction rate at least for 50 years’ production.

A. 2005 and then to stabilize at six billion cubic feet a day, which
will allow such an extraction rate at least for (which modifies day=>OUT)
B. 2005 and then to stabilize at six billion cubic feet a day, an extraction rate that will allow at least (the last part modifies "six billion cubic feet a day"=>OK)
C. 2005 and then stabilizing at six billion cubic feet a day, with such an extraction rate at the least allowing (a day, with=>OUT)
D. 2005, then stabilizing at six billion cubic feet a day, allowing such an extraction rate for at least ("allow ..for" here is not appropriately used; "then stabilizing" lacks parallel antecendent; besides, "allowing" modifies "yield"=>wrong sence =>OUT)
Allow for
TIME/MONEY to plan to use a particular amount of money, time, etc for something
Allow three hours for the whole journey.

E. 2005, then stabilizing at six billion cubic feet a day, which will allow such an extraction rate for at least (which modifies day=>OUT)

I picked D, which seems incorrect after reading other post.

modifier question [#permalink] New post 03 Jul 2009, 09:05
Can someone please explain when we should use noun modifiers with relative pronouns, when to use prepositional modifier, when to use absolute phrase modifier and when to use gerund modifier?

For example:

The yield of natural gas from Norway’s Troll gas field is expected to increase
annually until the year 2005 and then to stabilize at six billion cubic feet a day , which will allow such an extraction rate at least for 50 years’ production.

A. 2005 and then to stabilize at six billion cubic feet a day, which
will allow such an extraction rate at least for
B. 2005 and then to stabilize at six billion cubic feet a day, an
extraction rate that will allow at least
C. 2005 and then stabilizing at six billion cubic feet a day, with
such an extraction rate at the least allowing
D. 2005, then stabilizing at six billion cubic feet a day, allowing
such an extraction rate for at least
E. 2005, then stabilizing at six billion cubic feet a day, which will
allow such an extraction rate for at least

Despite other errors in the above choices, when should we use "which...", "with...", gerund ("allowing...") and absolute phrase ("an extraction...")?

Thanks!!
