Good question but I am a bit perplexed about it in the right choice C

If the new stroke treatment system, currently being developed by the Hunter Medical Research Institute in Australia, proves that it can effectively allow more stroke patients to receive thrombolysis within the three hour treatment window than currently possible, it will save the lives of many and


The first IT though Australia in inserted within an incidental phrase so it logically refers to treatment why I can not have the doubt the the pronoun refers to the Institute ??

Also

If the new stroke treatment system, currently being developed by the Hunter Medical Research Institute in Australia, proves that it can effectively allow more stroke patients to receive thrombolysis within the three hour treatment window than currently possible, it will save the lives of many and

In this light I m not convinced of this construction. redundant and not stylistically appropriate

I would go with A. Any choice with "currently being" should be wrong.

Then we are saving money as well as lives.

Official Explanation for AC C:

This answer choice corrects the original Redundancy error by replacing as well as with the more concise and. It also correctly uses the Future Simple tense (will save) in the result part of a Conditional 1 sentence.

Hi,

The Economist GMAT site does not talk anything about the usage of "currently being".. This is clearly redundant... since "being" shows that the event is currently in process... we dont require "currently"

Can someone please share their opinions about this.

Dom.

Hi Dom.

Are you sure with this rule? I haven't read about it yet. I think this is an issue of source: Economist strongly teaches the "as well as" as redundant while I have never heard them saying "currently being" is redundant. So maybe it is not worth the time bothering about it ...

Regards

- My view:
1. The original text does not contain the word ‘currently’. Then why is Economist meddling with the original content in the choices? It may be ok to change or fortify it, if the original is absurd; but as suggested, it seems to be too trivial for Economist to consider it.
But strikingly, there is a 3 to 2 split between with currently and without currently. Because redundancy is an untenable flaw, unless the originator proves to the contrary with some official precedents, we can eliminate all choices that contain ‘currently’ as redundant
This is a fit case for Economist to clarify its mindset, when there is so much noise being made about the validity of the content

I'm not really convinced of option C, especially using "currently" twice. That makes it a bit awkward IMO.
