Hi expert,
Are "at much higher speeds" in choice D and "at speeds much higher" in choice E the same? Can we POE base on this point?
Thanks.


Both the following sentences are correct:

I run at speeds (that are) much higher than (the speeds) you run (at)... correct ( similar to option E: comparison between speeds I run and speeds you run)
I run at much higher speeds than you run... correct too (comparison between I run and you run.)

So the answer to your first query is that they mean the same but are structurally different.

Sorry I could not understand the second query of yours.

According to analysts, an alliance between three major personal computer companies and most of the nation’s largest local telephone companies would enable customers to receive Internet data over regular telephone lines with speeds much higher than is currently possible.

A. with speeds much higher than is
Subject verb disagreement in 'speeds' and 'is'
B. with speeds that are much higher than are
with speeds is logically wrong in the telephone lines with speeds as the internet data does not has any speed but the rate of transfer of data at certain speed is the intended meaning.
C. at much higher speeds as are
the usage of as is wrong here
D. at much higher speeds than that
the choice makes the sentence awkward as 'than that currently possible ' does not makes cohesive structure.
E. at speeds much higher than are
grammatically perfect and correct choice.
