Why choice A is incorrect? I really don't know what Mars rovers is, so can I not assume that Mars rover is a "major technological advance"??

Hi AR15J
you can also cross out option A for the wrong use of WHICH. You must have to use a COMMA before WHICH-that's the rules of GMAC as far I know.
Thank you...

Choice make sense to me because of the use of pro-verb (the verb which is used instead of verb).
The Mars rovers employ an innovative three-layered solar panel array, a major technological advance, that can absorb more sunlight and provide more power than the typical single layer panel can
(absorb more sunlight and provide more power)

ARJ 15.
1.'Rove' is an ordinary English verb meaning to wander randomly. Rover is the singular noun and Rovers is the plural for the rover. NASA has been sending several Rovers mainly to topograph Mars and these spacecrafts are collectively called Mars Rovers.


This tests modification as well as comparison.

2. We can dispense with A, B and C in one stroke for using wrong modification in describing the Rovers as technological marvel the marvel is in fact the three-layered solar battery.
3 In comparisons, as action must be compared with another action Only D carries that valid comparison of 'can absorb and provide' in the first arm with a matching action 'can' in the later arm, while E simply compares an action with another gadget.
