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
No referent for 'they'. Drop it.

(B) wild animals have less total fat than livestock fed on grain and more of a kind of fat thought to be
seems to be fine. Keep it.

(C) wild animals have less total fat than that of livestock fed on grain and have more fat of a kind thought to be
that: makes comparison incompatible. Drop it.

(D) total fat of wild animals is less than livestock fed on grain and they have more fat of a kind thought to be
Comparison: fat with livestock; incompatible. Drop it.

(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
wordy comparison. also, no referent for 'they'. Drop it.

Answer: B

This comparison is very clearly wrong: “total fat… is less than livestock.” You could, I suppose, also argue that the “they” isn’t 100% clear – but the illogical comparison is the most straightforward issue. (D) is out, too.

Quote:
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

There’s a lot of clunkiness here, but the biggest issue is the word “they”: the only possible referents are “wild animals”, “livestock”, or “studies.” And none of those are likely to “think [that fat] is good for cardiac health.” (E) is gone, and (B) is the best answer.[/quote]



Hello GMATNinja.

I am clear with the POE as explained but I am skeptical about the usage of with here.To me it seemed liked an adverbial modifer in option D and E.

Can you please help me understand the same.

This is a sentence I found in an article in nytimes . I have few doubts please help me out

"The banks also suggested that Uber could list its shares for trading on the stock market earlier than its original plans for late 2019 "

In this sentence, I understand that comparison is between times "earlier and late 2019" .but what I don't understand is the comparison structure and the respective elements. I mean in the above example here we are comparing action " could list its shares" to " original plans for late 2019".
Now as per my ubder
