Option C: Wild animals have less total fat than that of livestock fed on grain and have more fat of a kind thought to be

"Wild animals" is being compared to "livestock." "Than that of" is awkward.

"Have" seems redundant.

"A kind thought to be" could be correct in some situations, but it feels awkward in this sentence.

Hi ,
I know that option (d) is incorrect due to incorrect usage of pronoun, but according to the OG the comparison in this choice is also incorrect. According to me :
d)total fat of wild animals
is less than
(total fat:ellipsis) of livestock fed on....

I think i am confused with the usage of ellipsis. What can be dropped and what can't be., through this example.

Thanks
Sinha

Compare wild animals to livestock,

C. compares wild animals (themselves) to the fat (of livestock) and is therefore wrong.

I got B. is that correct?



I think the interpretation of B is as:

Wild animal has X and Y

X= total fat & Y = livestock fed on grains.

Hence B say : Wild animals has less total fat than livestock fed grain. in this case , B is wrong.


please throw some light on it.


Wild animal has less fat than Domestic animals - Comparison between wild and domestic animal. Which is correct.
The fat of wild animal is less than Domestic animal - Wrong comparison. Here the fat is compared with the Domestic animal.
The fat of wild animal is less than that of Domestic animal - Correct comparison. Here the fat of Wild animal compared with fat of domestic animal.

Option 'C' can be treated as redundant.

Rosy is more tall than that of Nancy ---> Rosy is more tall than tall of nancy --(Doesn't make sense.) Here the object that we are comparing falls inside the comparison statement "MORE.. THAN". Hence its clear and there is no ambiguity in comparison. But the right comparison is "Rosy is more tall than nancy is" . If both the verbs are going to be the same we can ignore. Hence we can say " Rosy is more tall than Nancy".

Laos has a land area about the same as Great Britain --> Here if you saw the object of the sentence "THE LAND AREA" is not presented inside any comparison term. In that case we can say that the OBJECT is compared with the SUBJECT. Here the LAND AREA is compared with the GREAT BRITAIN which is wrong. Here the usage of that makes sense. [http://gmatclub.com/forum/laos-has-a-land-area-about-the-same-as-great-britain-but-107156.html]

If the same has been stated as "Laos has more land area than Great Britain" - Correct comparison.




I your example "The fat of wild animal is less than Domestic animal". Can we say that the sentence uses ellipsis "The fat of wild animal is less than (fat of) Domestic animal"
and hence is correct ?

According to recent studies comparing the nutritional value of meat from wild animals and meat from
domesticated animals, wild animals have less total fat than do livestock fed on grain and more of a kind of
fat they think is good for cardiac health.

A. wild animals have less total fat than do livestock fed on grain and more of a kind of fat they think is
Who are “they” ?
There is NO antecedent for “they” in the sentence

B. wild animals have less total fat than livestock fed on grain and more of a kind of fat thought to be
Correctly replace the “they think” to “thought to be” hence avoiding “they” altogether…

C. wild animals have less total fat than that of livestock fed on grain and have more fat of a kind
thought to be
this version incorrectly compare “wild animals” with “fat of livestock”…

D. total fat of wild animals is less than livestock fed on grain and they have more fat of a kind thought
to be
“they” in this sentence can refer to both livestock and wild animals – Ambiguous

E. total fat is less in wild animals than that of livestock fed on grain and more of their fat is of a kind
they think is
Who are “they” ?
There is NO antecedent for “they” in the sentence

I wonder if there is elipsis in B (correct option)!

Is the full version of comparison
