As sources of electrical power, windmills now account for only about 2,500 megawatts nationwide, but production is almost expected to double by the end of the year, which would provide enough electricity for 1.3 million households.


(A) almost expected to double by the end of the year, which would provide

(B) almost expected that it will double by the end of the year, thus providing

(C) expected that it will almost double by the end of the year to provide

(D) expected almost to double by the end of the year and thus to provide

(E) expected almost to double by the end of the year, which would thus be providing

Question No.: SC 798

Windmills now account for only about 2,500 megawatts of generating capacity nationwide, but production is expected almost to double by the end of 2001 to provide enough electricity for 1.3 million households. The industry anticipates that in two decades wind power will grow to 100,000 megawatts and account for 6 percent of the country's electricity.

Megawatt Windmills

(A) Meaning / Modifier (almost); Modifier (which)

(B) Meaning / Modifier (almost); Meaning / Idiom (expected that)

(C) Meaning / Idiom (expected that)

(D) CORRECT

(E) Modifier (which)


First glance

Two choices begin with almost expected and two others begin with expected almost. Check the meaning of the sentence to see where the modifier almost should be placed.

Issues

(1) Meaning / Modifier: almost

Meaning / Idiom: expected that


The original sentence says that production is almost expected to double. In this construction, almost modifies the word expected. This meaning is illogical—there either is an expectation or there is not an expectation.

Choices (D) and (E) offer a more clear meaning: production is expected almost to double. In this case, almost modifies to double, and this meaning is logical. Production will almost double but not quite. Eliminate choices (A) and (B) for faulty meaning based on the placement of almost.

While dealing with the almost issue, you might spot another meaning issue.

(A), (D), (E) production is … expected to double

(B), (C) production is … expected that it will double

It is possible to use both of these constructions, but they have different meanings. For example, it is acceptable to say It is expected that she will work hard. It is also acceptable to say Her hard work is expected to result in a promotion. In the latter case, the sentence is conveying a cause-effect relationship: Her hard work will lead to a promotion. When this is the intended meaning, use the structure X is expected to (lead to Y). Answers (A), (D), and (E) properly use this structure to convey a cause-effect relationship. Eliminate choices (B) and (C).

(2) Modifier: which

The original sentence has a comma-which modifier. These modifiers should refer to the main noun before the comma.

In this case, that noun is year or end of the year, but neither one makes sense. Logically, the entire action (the fact that production is expected to double) will result in enough electricity for the 1.3 million households—but a comma-which modifier is supposed to refer to a noun, not an entire clause. Eliminate (A) and (E).

The Correct Answer

Correct answer (D) conveys correct meaning (expected almost to double) and avoids the which error by changing that portion of the sentence entirely.

Rhetorical construction; Idiom

The intended meaning of the sentence seems to be that the electricity production of windmills is expected to approximately double by year's end. But instead of saying almost double, we have almost expected, which is an unclear idea. Also unclear is what the relative pronoun which refers to.

(A) The placement of almost makes it nonsensically modify is expected. What the relative pronoun which refers to is ambiguous: for example, does it refer to the expectation, the possible doubling, or the year?

(B) The resulting sentence misplaces the adverb almost.

(C) The phrase production is expected that it will . . . makes no sense—as opposed to, for example, it is expected that production will. . . .

(D) Correct. This sentence clearly conveys the expectations of production: almost to double and thus to provide. There is no ambiguity as to what will be providing enough electricity.

(E) The referent of the relative pronoun which is ambiguous, and the conditional verb form would thus be providing is unnecessarily wordy.

Hi chetan2u / daagh,

Hi,
i'll just replace the underlined portion with C and lets test the choice then

As sources of electrical power, windmills now account for only about 2,500 megawatts nationwide, but production is expected that it will almost double by the end of the year to provide enough electricity for 1.3 million households

The usage of that after expected requires a subject and production cannot be the subject for it..
production is expected that it will almost double by the end of the year.. THIS DOES NOT MAKE SENSE

If I write :-
It is expected that production will almost double by the end of the year... would be ok if there is an antecedent for "it"..
but than "to provide" is to parallel with ''expected almost to double ", which requires a different construction ..

so two ways to speak is..
production is expected to double..
OR it is expected that the production will double

As sources of electrical power, windmills now account for only about 2500 megawatts nationwide, but production is almost expected to double by the end of the year, which would provide enough electricity for 1.3 million household.

a)almost expected to double by the end of the year, which would provide
Wrong. "which" is placed wrongly --> modifies "year".

b)almost expected that it would double by the end of the year,thus providing
Wrong. "it" is redundant because "it" refers to production --> the sentence becomes: "production is expected that production would double....." <-- we don't need the second "production".

c)expected that it will almost double by the end of the year to provide
Wrong. Same as B. "it" is redundant.

d)expected almost to double by the end of the year and thus to provide
Correct. Parallel and concise --> Production is expected almost to double ....and to provide......

e)expected almost to double by the end of the year, which would thus be providing
Wrong. Same as in A. "which" is placed wrongly.

Hope it helps.

A and B
-almost is incorrectly modifying expected implying it may or may not happen
-modifying double implies it may or may not double.
C - unidiomatic
E - wordy
D - parallel and concise

what is to happen 'almost'? doubling of production, or the expectation of doubling of production. Since expectation being almost is awckward, while a figure getting almost double is alright, all answer choice with almost expecte are rejected rightaway. This gets rid of A and B

C. says that ' production is expected that it will almost double by the end of the year to provide' This is clearly wrong usage of pronoun it- either it should be 'it is expected that production will almost double', or 'it is expected about production that it will almost double' (wordy but gramatically sensical)
Therefore, C is rejected.

Between 'thus to provie' and 'which would thus be providing' I choose D. Thus to provide.
production is the subject f this clause- it is expected to double and thus to provide for blah blah..
use of 'which would thus be providing' makes this more wordy, changes the tatructure of the sentence, and also use of which is confusing.
hence D is the correct option.

A and B are ruled out due to the the almost expected construction, cant figure out exactly why its D and not E..
:?


Choice D keep the phrases parallel. Production expected to double by the ........... and (expected) to provide enough electricity.......

While in Choice E, The usage of which creates ambiguity. which/that refers to the closest noun i.e. year in this case.

For other Choices

A) Incorrect Placement of ALMOST. Misplaced Modifier WHICH

B) Incorrect Placement of ALMOST. Unidiomatic Usage Production is expected that it would double CORRECT USAGE IS Production is expected to double OR It is expected that Production will double

C) Same Unidiomatic Usage here too.

Hope That Helps!

As sources of electrical power, windmills now account for only about 2,500 megawatts nationwide, but production is almost expected to double
by the end of the year, which would provide
enough electricity for 1.3 million households.

ALMOST EXPECTED is wrong modifier.Author intend to say almost double and which is used incorrectly
This also clear out B and E
We are left with C and D

The problem with C is the THAT clause.
THAT begin a new clause and sentence is now incomplete. Production is expected THAT.... household .. Production is expected what and THAT is modifying expected
Hence D is the correct answer


A. almost expected to double by the end of the year, which would provide
B. almost expected that it will double by the end of the year, thus providing
C. expected that it will almost double by the end of the year to provide
D. expected almost to double by the end of the year and thus to provide
E. expected almost to double by the end of the year, which would thus be providing

You cannot "almost expect". You either expect or you dont. There is no middle ground. Therefore, "almost" is placed incorrectly in A and B. Both out.

"production is expected that" is incorrect. "production is expected to" or "it is expected that production" is correct. C out.

"which" is incorrect in E.

D it is.

A more comprehensive POE:

A. 1. "almost" placed incorrectly.
2. "which" is incorrect.
3. "would" the past future tense is incorrect. We need a future tense since the sentence is written in the present tense ("production is")

B. 1. "almost" placed incorrectly.
2. The verb of intention "to" is preferable. This is not very crisp in meaning.

C. 1. "production is expected to" is correct not "production is expected that"
2. Meaning error. The production is expected to double with an intention to provide electricity?

D. 1. "almost" placed properly
2. "to double" correct.
3. Parallelism good. expected...to double || to provide.

E. 1. "which" is wrong.
2. Who is providing?

Answer: D

would provide enough electricity for 1.3 million households.


Split 1 : Almost expected Vs Expected almost
both are correct but in this context, Almost expected creates illogical meaning . Expected almost is correct

Option A, B, C are wrong on this basis.

Lets do POE, to eliminate rest.

A. almost expected to double by the end of the year, which would provide
split 1 discussed above and Which - refers to year, year will not provide anything - incorrect

B. almost expected that it will double by the end of the year, thus providing
Split 1

C. expected that it will almost double by the end of the year to provide
It will almost double - Production wont double anything - Incorrect.

D. expected almost to double by the end of the year and thus to provide
expected
to double and
to provide
no error in parallelism - correct

E. expected almost to double by the end of the year, which would thus be providing
Which refers to year - incorrect

Its the meaning..

"... expected..... it will...."

How can you expect an event and be sure that it will happen too? This is an oxymoron.

I expect that I will score 700 in GMAT. -- Incorrect.
I expect to score 700 in GMAT. -- Correct.

What are we expecting?- Production to double by the end of the year
What will be the result?- This doubled production will provide enough electricity to 1.3 M households.

"D" states the proper meaning.

C. expected that it will almost double by the end of the year to provide
D. expected almost to double by the end of the year and thus to provide
E. expected almost to double by the end of the year, which would thus be providing


ANSWER IS D


Explanation:-
1) Parallelism :- ACCOUNT and PROVIDE are parallel
so the correct option should use PROVIDE
B and C have wrong parallelism - to provide and providing

2) Wrong modifier :- A & E have wrong modifiers. In A and E it appears that "Year" will provide electricity

D has correct parallelism by using PROVIDE and removes the modifier problem by using the conjunction "and" thus creating two clauses with clear and concise meaning.

Meaning of the sentence: Production is expected to almost double and this would provide energy
In options A and E, usage of which illogically conveys the meaning that years would provide the energy.

In options B, C and D, we need to check for parallelism.
We can negate B because of two reasons: 1) incorrect parallelism between account and providing and 2) almost expected distorts the meaning
Coming to C, what will almost double?

Hence Correct Option: D

A. almost expected to double by the end of the year, which would provide
production is almost expected! productions is NOT QUITE/VERY NEARLY expected. so the meaning is wrong because of the position of almost.

B. almost expected that it will double by the end of the year, thus providing
same as A.

C. expected that it will almost double by the end of the year to provide
production is expected THAT - wrong meaning. we need to here because you want to say production is expected to increase. if you say production is expected THAT increase then it really awkward and gramatically wrong.

D. expected almost to double by the end of the year and thus to provide

E. expected almost to double by the end of the year, which would thus be providing

dear experts,
I still did not get C ,that's how I read C

1/almost modifies verb double, so it should be as close to double as possible, only C is most close.
2/it in C refers to production, IMO, it is correct
3/ that clause is further describe what expect, seems ok
4/ the purpose of increase is to provide enough
moreover, OE for C is that :
The phrase production is expected that it will . . . makes no sense
I am confused, why no sense?
please hint .
thanks a lot
have a nice day

C is changing the meaning of the sentence.

Also, "Production is expected that it will " is awkward.

"Production is expected almost to double." Very Clear meaning.

Try substituting C and D in the original sentence, you will realize the change in the meaning.

1/almost modifies verb double, so it should be as close to double as possible, only C is most close.
2/it in C refers to production, IMO, it is correct
3/ that clause is further describe what expect, seems ok
4/ the purpose of increase is to provide enough
moreover, OE for C is that :
The phrase production is expected that it will . . . makes no sense
I am confused, why no sense?
please hint .
thanks a lot
have a nice day

C is changing the meaning of the sentence.

Also, "Production is expected that it will " is awkward.

"Production is expected almost to double." Very Clear meaning.

Try substituting C and D in the original sentence, you will realize the change in the meaning.


thanks abhimahna,

I am afraid I still did not get it
would you please explain further
appreciate if point out my fault.

thanks a lot
have a nice day
