The word "and" is a parallelism marker: the next part is "how close it is (...)", so we have to maintain the parallelism

C) how extensively it has developed
E) how extensively it has been developed

My take is E, we need a passive voice.

OA to follow soon!


IMO E
two parallel clauses must start with same word.
using this rule we can eliminate A B D

now between C and E.

C) how extensively it has developed==>THIS IS WRONG AS IT SEEMS THAT LAND ARE DEVELOPING BY ITSELF...illogical

hence E

Well, first of all a I would say that this -two parallel clauses must start with same word- is not correct. They are parallel if the "structure" matches, example:
Marc likes to play football in the summer and read books by his favorite author.

This is parallel and the first word is different.

"BY" has many usages, it can mean something like "by the time (...)" or like "the book by the author" or even "Marc expressed his opinion by writing a letter"; the question 68 from the OG uses "by + ING verb", so I would say that by can be followed by other things that are not nouns and pronouns.
Also a RC text from the OG uses a "by how" construct: it's legit.

Hope this helps.

well first of all I dint said by my own that parallel clauses start with same word.
see the below is an excerpt from MANHATTAN SC 4th edition:
Parallel clauses should start with the same word.
Wrong:I want to retire to a place WHERE I can relax AND THAT has low taxes.
right: I want to retire to a place WHEREI can relax AND WHERE the taxes are low.

moreover in your given example:

Marc likes to play football in the summer and read books by his favorite author.====>in this 2 infinitive forms are parallel TO PLAY and TO READ......INSTEAD OF CLAUSES.

I CAN AGREE ON YOU IN THE USE OF "by how" if OG passage uses that sort of construction......if possible just let me know which passage uses that.

THANKS anyways.

No shaileshmishra. My example is 100% correct. Both:

Marc likes to play football and read books.<==="read" parallel to "play"
Marc likes to play football and to read books.<===="to read" parallel to "to play"

are 100% correct. Since the parallel structure has no starting point here, you can choose where it begins.

And "two parallel clauses MUST start with same word" is NOT the same as "two parallel clauses SHOULD start with same word"

Hello SKM, you're hitting upon a common confusion between the preposition and adverb. The "by" here doesn't qualify to be a preposition. A prepositional phrase includes the preposition, its object, and any modifiers related to the object. They generally connect two nouns in spatial or chronological sense.

For Eg. - This work of art was completed by King's best sculptures.
I would submit my answers by Monday.

Given this logic, the "By" here is a prepositional adverb which need not be followed by a noun.

Parallelism: what does it mean? What should be placed parallel and what not?
If I want to express "parallel ideas" I must use parallelism. So if I want to say that Marc likes two things I must use a parallel structure, the intended meaning is: Marc likes
*play
*sing

If the two ideas are separate I should not maintain a parallel structure, example:
The doctor discovered a tumor
The tumor was benign

If I join those things with an "and" == a parallelism marker, the sentence is not correct:
The doctor discovered a tumor and was benign == you are placing on the same level two ideas/actions that should not be parallel. The correct sentence would be "The doctor discovered a tumor, WHICH was benign"

To make it clearer, the sentence "The doctor discovered a tumor and ?, should have after the "and" an action that the doctor did like "administer the cure"=> now the sentence makes sense.

I hope that what parallelism means is now clear.

If the parallelism has no begin marker, you can "choose" where it begins.
Examples: are they correct ?
1 Marc likes to play and sing.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
YES! as the parallelism has not a begin marker, "sing" is parallel to "play"

2 Marc likes to play and to sing.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
YES! as the parallelism has not a begin marker, "to sing" is parallel to "to play"

3 Marc likes both to play and to sing.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
YES! in this case the parts between BOTH X AND Y must be parallel and they are (to play and to sing)

4 Marc likes both to play and sing.
[Reveal] Spoiler:
NO! the parts between BOTH X AND Y must be parallel and they are not (to+verb and only verb)

Consider also this post parallelism-confusion-in-concept-155085.html

Finally run-on sentence...
Marc likes to play and sing. Is not a run on sentence.

A run on sentence is a sentence composed by two independent clauses connected by a comma without FANBOYS (and, but,...)
Example: IC 1= This year I'll go to Paris ; IC 2=Next year I'll go to London
Run on sentence=This year I'll go to Paris, next year I'll go to London
Correct sentence=This year I'll go to Paris, AND next year I'll go to London

Hope this makes sense :)

here the subject is the value. Mister X try to predict this so how extensively it has been developed is a bit ackward and in each answer choice it seems not so clear in its antecedent....

Well, the pricenton's books have a discrete amount of errors especially in quant. I'm a bit suspicious about this question.

So what is the OA?

I picked E. Mostly because I eliminated the ones I thought were unfit for some reason or another.

D) the extent to which it has developed
E) how extensively it has been developed


OA to follow soon!

It is a close shave between C and E.
First of all, see the latter part of the sentence. It says that something is close to a major business center. Now what can be close to a major business center? Can it be the price of the land? Obviously NO. It can be a place or some landmark. In this case, its quite clear that it is going to be the land itself.
IMO it is a clear E. No doubt about that.

C implies: The parcel of land has developed extensively. "Developed" what? "Developed into" what? This option ascribes human-like nature to a thing (parcel of land). The alternative meaning is that the parcel of land has "grown" a lot (similar to, He has developed well.)--again attributes the human-like nature of growing to an inanimate object.

E implies: The parcel of land has been developed extensively. This option implies that someone (some person) has developed it.

E makes more sense than C.

It has to be E both for parallelism (how...how), and diction. The lend can develop itself, it is developed by someone else

Just my 2 cents

Hello from the GMAT Club VerbalBot!

Thanks to another GMAT Club member, I have just discovered this valuable topic, yet it had no discussion for over a year. I am now bumping it up - doing my job. I think you may find it valuable (esp those replies with Kudos).

Want to see all other topics I dig out? Follow me (click follow button on profile). You will receive a summary of all topics I bump in your profile area as well as via email.
