A & B can be eliminated due to "that" issue as explained above …For C,D & E i think the easy way to eliminate D&E is to check the word "might" …. "may" is the correct word…

Hello.

I bet "which" should not be underlined. If "which" is underlined, option C is weird because "..............as far south as Rome, is located......" is ungrammatical.

Please advise.

This I choose (C)

If each clause stand on its own and give meaning then we say as IC.

If you plugin Option B on the given statement

According to a recent study, Earth's magnetic north pole is moving away from Alaska and toward Siberia so rapidly, within 50 years, people may be able to see the swirling green auroras of the Northern Lights in cities as far south as Rome and is located at 41º north latitude.

Earth's magnetic north pole is moving away from Alaska and toward Siberia so rapidly - Independent statement.
people may be able to see the swirling green auroras of the Northern Lights in cities as far south as Rome - Independent statement.

If we want to connect two IC it should be followed by comma and FANBOYS or it should be followed by semicolon.

If two IC are there in a statement without the above stated rule we call them as RUNON statement.

Ram is a good student, he is studying in Cambridge --> Incorrect.
Ram is a good student, And he is studying in Cambridge --> Correct.
Ram is a good student; He is studying in Cambridge --> Correct.

Hope this helps.

I chose the option C because of the semicolon that doesn't creates a independent clause.
However I always have difficult to understand the key differences about using the MAY or MIGHT. Can you explain to me?

IMHO

might actually refers to the past tense of may and refers to a probability that existed in the past, but doesn't exist anymore

Dear smanujahrc,

I'm happy to respond. :-)

My friend, it appears that you are relatively new to GMAT Club. Please do not post in a brand new thread any question that has already been posted before. Always search extensively before posting. If you find a pre-existent thread, that's the place to ask your question--in fact, you may find an answer to your question already written in that thread. I merged your post into a pre-existent thread about this MGMAT question. If nothing in this thread answers your question, this would be the appropriate place to ask your question.

Does all this make sense?

Mike :-)

Firstly, keep in mind the underlining issue pointed out in an earlier post. Now, option E reads:

visible by people in cities far to the south; such as Rome, located at 41º north latitude

1. A to after visible would be appropriate (visible to people).
2. After the semicolon, we have such as Rome, located.... We would normally expect a clause (after a semicolon).

According to a recent study, Earth's magnetic north pole is moving away from Alaska and toward Siberia so rapidly, within 50 years, that the swirling green auroras of the Northern Lights might be visible in cities as far south as Rome, which is located at 41º north latitude.

A. rapidly, within 50 years, that the swirling green auroras of the Northern Lights might be visible in cities as far south as Rome, which is
The placement of that is inappropriate and because of which the 'within 50 years' makes no proper sense.

B. rapidly, within 50 years, people may be able to see the swirling green auroras of the Northern Lights in cities as far south as Rome and
There has to be a connecting pronoun here 'that' is missing.

C. rapidly that, within 50 years, the swirling green auroras of the Northern Lights may be visible from cities as far south as Rome,
Correct answer.

D. rapidly such that, within 50 years, people might be able to see the swirling green auroras of the Northern Lights from cities as far south as Rome, and
usage of might is incorrect.

E. rapidly that, within 50 years, the swirling green auroras of the Northern Lights might be visible by people in cities far to the south; such as Rome,
The usage of 'might' is incorrect because might is a past tense and may should have been used instead.

(A) rapidly, within 50 years, that the swirling green auroras of the Northern Lights might be visible in cities as far south as Rome, which is

(E) rapidly that, within 50 years, the swirling green auroras of the Northern Lights might be visible by people in cities far to the south; such as Rome,


OFFICIAL EXPLANATION


This sentence reports the striking findings of a research study: Earth's magnetic north pole is moving so fast that the Northern Lights may be visible from new locations within 50 years. The modifier within 50 years describes something that will happen in the future, so it cannot be referring to the fact that the north pole is (now) moving in a certain way. Rather, it must describe the study's conclusion that the Northern Lights will be visible from other locations in future.

(A) The modifier within 50 years illogically describes the present movement of Earth's magnetic north pole rather than the predicted future outcome.

(B) In this sentence, Earth’s ... rapidly and people ... latitude are both complete sentences, creating two problems. First, the overall construction is a run-on sentence, containing no conjunction to properly connect the two sentences. Second, the placement of within 50 years between the two clauses makes it unclear what that phrase is intended to describe. Finally, the use of and at the end of this choice makes the meaning redundant, since "as far south as Rome" and "at the same latitude as Rome" are identical concepts.

(C) CORRECT. In this sentence, within 50 years is properly used to describe what will happen in the future. As far south as Rome is idiomatically correct, and the final modifier correctly describes Rome.

(D) The combination of so and such is redundant and unidiomatic. The use of and at the end of this choice makes the meaning redundant, since "as far south as Rome" and "at the same latitude as Rome" are identical concepts.

(E) The construction visible by people is unidiomatic and should be phrased as visible to people. The part of this sentence following the semicolon is a modifier, not a complete sentence (independent clause), thus creating a sentence fragment.

Hi.
Can Anyone explain the concept behind removing "which " in C. In A "which" is obviously modifying Rome, But I am not sure how "Located 41 degrees" is modifying Rome.
