[quote="MartyMurray"]According to wildlife conservationists, more than three times as many of North America's Mexican gray wolves, which were once hunted into near-extinction as a supposed threat to farmer’s livestock, live in protected areas that were established for the protection and preservation of this critically endangered species than those that live outside of these areas.

[list](A) According to wildlife conservationists, more than three times as many of North America's Mexican gray wolves, which were once hunted into near-extinction as a supposed threat to farmer’s livestock, live in protected areas that were established for the protection and preservation of this critically endangered species than those that live outside of these areas.( as many of north America's Mexican gray wolves as live outside of these areas is the correct construction, than those that live is incorrect)

(B) Once hunted into near-extinction as a supposed threat to farmer’s livestock, more than three times as many of North America's Mexican gray wolves live in protected areas that were established for the protection and preservation of this critically endangered species than those living outside of these areas, according to wildlife conservationists.(misplaced modifier and incorrect use of as many than those)

(C) More than three times as many of North America’s Mexican gray wolves, which, according to wildlife conservationists, were once hunted into near-extinction as a supposed threat to farmer’s livestock, live in protected areas that were established for the protection and preservation of this critically endangered species than those that live outside of them.( Changes the intended meaning apart from the as many than those error)

(D) According to wildlife conservationists, more than three times as many of North America's Mexican gray wolves, which were once hunted into near-extinction as a supposed threat to farmer’s livestock, live in protected areas that were established for the protection and preservation of this critically endangered species as live outside of these areas.( Correct use of idiom ,meaning is correct)

(E) More than three times as many of North America's Mexican gray wolves, which were once hunted into near-extinction as a supposed threat to farmer’s livestock, live in protected areas that were established for the protection and preservation of this critically endangered species than that live outside of these areas, according to wildlife conservationists.( Incorrect use of as many more than those)

Will go with choice D

Thanks

Hi MartyMurray,
I'm a little bit confused about the word "this" in choice D.
Here is D:

The word "species" is plural. So shouldn't the word "this" replaced with "these"?
Thanks__

IMO D.
Correct idiom is 'as many X as Y'. Only option D has this construction and hence is the correct answer.

The word "species" can be singular or plural depending on context.

In this case, we are talking about one species. So, "species" is singular.
