Just to summarize the understanding, "it" should refer to the "complete" subject along with the modifier.

Can I use "that"? Can you please clarify the difference.


Hi kinjiGC,

Any pronoun used to refer to a noun will include the associated modifier with it. It just cannot pick up the "noun" and leave alone the modifier. This is applicable for the use of "that" as well.

Hope this helps. :-)
Thanks.

There are hopeful signs that we are shifting away from our heavy reliance on fossil fuels: more than ten times as much energy is generated through wind power now than it was in 1990

A) generated through wind power now than it was
B) generated through wind power now as it was
C) generated through wind power now as was the case
D) now generated through wind power as it was
E) now generated through wind power than was the case


mikemcgarry

could you please clarify what is the issue with option B and D.

Please clarify this. i think it is referring to energy then why these options are wrong.

Thanks

A very nice question:

Split 1) In structure 'times as ... ' we need as to conclude the comparison: Eliminate A, E

Split 2) 'it' in B and D refers to 'energy' that is generated through wind power now. When a pronoun refers to a noun it exactly means the same thing. But this cannot be true, as now ten time the 1990 amount of energy is generated through wind power. Eliminate B, D

Split 3) 'now' before 'generated' (as in D) or after 'power' as in B: this split is not decisive as both are okay here

This is 700 + level question. Hence, there must be some twist / new rule coming into picture. Coming to question:
A and E are out because we need as not than.
D is out because of wrong placement of now.
Down to B/C
I choose B over C as it was concise and looks clear.

After having a look at OA, if i were to justify my self,than i would have given following reasoning

In parallelism question. always see what is being compared first. Here the energy generated now is being compared with energy generated in 1910.
Option B is comparing energy generated now vs (energy) in 1910 (it refers to energy)
Option C compares energy generated now vs (was the case in 1910) - a fact

C looks to compare correctly. Hence OA - C
