I thought this one was tough and I got it wrong in GMATPrep 2. Considering I got a V41 I would guess this one is a 700-800 level question but its also possible its one of my weaknesses...

this/that/these/those are never stand along pronoun.

that/those is used in paralel structure

the leg of my chair is strong but that of your is weak.
the 2 legs are different
the leg of my chair is stronger than it is previously
there is only one leg

"that" in B and C is used incorrectly

in my thinking correct, pls confirm/modify

(E) The growth of the global economy between 1990 and 2000 exceeded what it did for the 10,000 years from the beginning of agriculture

would appreciate the explanations for wrong answer choices

First of all, there is 3-2 split for "from the beginning of agriculture" Vs "from when agriculture began"
So, I'd prefer "from the beginning of agriculture" because "agriculture began" is incorrect i.e unidiomatic and doesn't make sense.
We are left with A, C and E

Second, C is incorrect : "exceeds" uses simple present wrongly to refer to an action occured in the past

Finally, E is incorrect because of "it did" ; did what ?!

A is correct "it did" can be replaced by "the global economy grew" and that would makes sense.

First of all, I think MEANING is the key to solve this question.
Only the economy can grow more than it did in the past. The growth cannot exceed the growth during 10,000 years before. It makes no sense. I eliminated B, C, D, E right away.
A is the best.

Between 1990 and 2000 the global economy grew more than it did during the 10,000 years from the beginning of agriculture to 1950.

(A) Between 1990 and 2000 the global economy grew more than it did during the 10,000 years from the beginning of agriculture
(B) Between 1990 and 2000 the growth of the global economy was more than that during 10,000 years, from when agriculture began >>> Wrong - change meaning.
(C) The growth of the global economy between 1990 and 2000 exceeds that which had been for 10,000 years from the beginning of agriculture >>> Wrong - change meaning and the use of "that which" is totally incorrect.
(D) The growth of the global economy between 1990 and 2000 exceeds what it has been for 10,000 years, from when agriculture began >>> Wrong - change meaning.
(E) The growth of the global economy between 1990 and 2000 exceeded what it did for the 10,000 years from the beginning of agriculture >>> Wrong - change meaning.

Hope it helps.

here in option D and E IT refers to growth of global economy.

now replace IT with THE GROWTH OF GLOBAL ECONOMY in option E

The growth of the global economy between 1990 and 2000
exceeded
what it{the growth of the global economy} did for the 10,000 years from the beginning of agriculture

growth cannot do anything for 10000 YEARS....Hence this is wrong

hope it helps

Can anyone please explain what is wrong with B

gurang - IMO, the last part of B is awkward. The part that reads "from when agriculture began". A is a much might more common expression. Substituting "since" for "from", it makes more sense to say "since the beginning of agriculture or since the beginning of time, since the beginning of the school year" instead of "since when agriculture began or since when time began or since when the school year began". I think its more idiomatic than grammatical.

(A) Between 1990 and 2000 the global economy grew more than it did during the 10,000 years from the beginning of agriculture Best answer choice. "Between" modifies "grew", and "during" modified "did"' "did" is an ellipses

(B) Between 1990 and 2000 the growth of the global economy was more than that during 10,000 years, from when agriculture began Wrong - improper comparison construction because "between 1990 and 2000" modifies the verb "was", but "during 10000 years" can only modify "that", thus making the sentence illogical; furthermore, the comparison clause only modifies nouns.

(C) The growth of the global economy between 1990 and 2000 exceeds that which had been for 10,000 years from the beginning of agriculture Wrong - improper comparison; "that which" is nonsensical and has no logical referent; "had been" is not consistent (should be "was") .

(D) The growth of the global economy between 1990 and 2000 exceeds what it has been for 10,000 years, from when agriculture began Wrong - Improper comparison; Verb form "has been" is not the correct tense because perfect is for actions ongoing, and 10,000 years ago is not on-going; "began" as present tense is inconsistent with 10,000 years ago.

(E) The growth of the global economy between 1990 and 2000 exceeded what it did for the 10,000 years from the beginning of agriculture Wrong - improper comparison; "what it did" is wordy.

IMO A

Between 1990 and 2000 the global economy grew more than it did during the 10,000 years from the beginning of agriculture to 1950.

(A) Between 1990 and 2000 the global economy grew more than it did during the 10,000 years from the beginning of agriculture
(B) Between 1990 and 2000 the growth of the global economy was more than that during 10,000 years, from when agriculture began
Note: In comparisons, if you want to compare one thing another use "that," and if you want to compare something to itself, use "it": For example: "The seat of chair A is more worn than that of chair B." v.s. "The seat of chair A is more worn than it was last week."
(C) The growth of the global economy between 1990 and 2000 exceeds that which had been for 10,000 years from the beginning of agriculture
"that which" IS ALWAYS INCORRECT ON THE SC!! (Find more tips like these at gmaxonline
(D) The growth of the global economy between 1990 and 2000 exceeds what it has been for 10,000 years, from when agriculture began
Phrase of parallelism: From A to B. Notice that A, here, is "what..." and B is "1950"
(E) The growth of the global economy between 1990 and 2000 exceeded what it did for the 10,000 years from the beginning of agriculture
See B

why "that which..." is alway incorrect on gmat. please, explain this rule or tell me the relevant website at gmaxonline.

regarding why B is wrong

during+the+period
for +period

that are grammar rules, though minor one. B dose not comply with that rule and is wrong grammatically.

in C, "which had been for 1000...." is wrong because

the growth of the economy between/during
is correct idiom

the growth of the economy is for

is not idiomatic

the preposition "for" can not go with the growth in this case or the preposition "for" can go with "growth" in different meaning.

one big error in C is "had been"

I do not know why "had been" in c is wrong though I am sure this is wrong. please, explain and share your thought.

(A) Between 1990 and 2000 the global economy grew more than it did during the 10,000 years from the beginning of agriculture --- 'Between' used for 2 things, 'economy grew more that it did' is the CORRECT use, 'From X to Y' correct use.
(B) Between 1990 and 2000 the growth of the global economy was more than that during 10,000 years, from when agriculture began ---- Incorrect use of comma; Use of passive voice and wordy 'Growth of the global economy'
(C) The growth of the global economy between 1990 and 2000 exceeds that which had been for 10,000 years from the beginning of agriculture - wrong tense 'exceeds'
(D) The growth of the global economy between 1990 and 2000 exceeds what it has been for 10,000 years, from when agriculture began --- wrong tense 'exceeds'
(E) The growth of the global economy between 1990 and 2000 exceeded what it did for the 10,000 years from the beginning of agriculture ---- 'what it did for the years...' wrong modifier

during= a point in a period/process
during= through a period

that is why we see "during+the+period/process

for+an amount of time

in choice B, we have "during"+ amount of time. this is wrong

Am I correct ?
