Let me try..
Beside that A is wordy, I think the original intent of the text is that the number of female students currently enrolled in medical schools is the same as the number of male students currently enrolled in medical schools.
Option A misses "currently enrolled in medical schools" for female medical students. It compares female medical students (in whole) with male medical students currently enrolled....
But option B corrects this ambiguity.

Let me know if i am wrong :)

B. as many female as male students are currently enrolled in medical school

Is the usage of 'as many female as male students' right here ?

Doesn't this sentence mean that the female were as many as the male students currently enrolled in medical school ?

25. According to the enrollment statistics published by U.S. medical schools, the number of female medical students is equivalent to the number of male medical students currently enrolled in medical school.
a)
b) as many female as male students are currently enrolled in medical school
c) the number of female students is as many as that of male students currently enrolled in medical school
d) as great as the number of female is the number of male students currently enrolled in medical school
e) female and male students are currently enrolled in equal numbers in medical school


A. Incorrect, Equivalent is used for non-countable things.
B. Correct use of as many as idiom.
C. The number of female students as many as that of( the number of) male students.. Singular noun as many as singular noun ..Awkward.. Hence, incorrect..

D. as great as is not correct..Don't know the reasons but i think, we can use this in this context..
E. Equal numbers should modify female and male studens , not enrollment..

"equal numbers of female and male students are currently enrolled in medical school" would have been correct..


Please explain why C is incorrect ... singular noun as many as singular noun ...

pls help
the OA for this question is mind-blonwing. I do not understand the logic behind this question? In other words, how can I make a correct comparison in gmat SC questions?

C and D are eliminated b/e both miss the word "female medical students?"
A is wrong for sure, and E sounds awkward.
