the leg of my chair is stronger than it is previously
there is only one leg

"that" in B and C is used incorrectly

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.

No Clue !! Help

I'm happy to help with this. :-)

First of all, one big hint in this problem --- the word "grow" appears as a verb only in (A), and appears as the noun "growth" in the other four answers. That's not definitive, in and of itself, but it's a HUGE hint. The GMAT loves this kind of split, the same root word as noun/verb/adjective ---- over 95% of the time, the verb form will be correct. The reason is --- putting action as a verb tends to make the sentence more concise, more direct, and more powerful. Putting the action in noun or adjective form almost always makes things more indirect and wordy. See:
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2013/active-verbs-on-the-gmat/

Version (A) is perfectly correct grammatically, as well as direct & clear & powerful.

(B) is wordy, flabby, indirect.
(C) & (D) have the illogical present tense. The period 1950-2000 was a lovely time, but it ended 13 years ago, so using a present tense for this is incorrect.
(E) is also wordy & flabby, and I don't think the phrase "exceeded what it did" makes any sense at all. Does a world economy "do" its size, or do we say it simply "is" a size? The world economy is $XXX hundred billion. It would be totally illogical to use "does" instead of "is".

That's why (A) is the best. Does this make sense?
Mike :-)

I don't think this is a 700 level question.

1950 is only mentioned in A and not in other options. There insufficient comparison in choices B, C, D and E.

IMO Clear 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.

'It' singular refers to Global economy which is correct
From X to Y - Correct usage of Idiom.

With this, doing POE 2, 3 & 5 are comparing economy with time which is wrong and 4 changes the meaning by omitting 1950.

Kudos if this helps.. Thanks!

Dear jkaustubh,
Yes, I agree, it's not the most difficult question. I believe Dhairya275, who posted the question saying, "No Clue !! Help", simply took a guess because the system requires one to specify such things when one posts a questions. Don't automatically assume that the difficulty level for a question posted on GC is rigorously accurate ----- especially when a user who doesn't understand the question posts it for help, that user's estimation of the difficulty level is probably not going to be the most representative. Theoretically, when experts such as myself post our own questions, we will have a slightly better guess of the difficulty level, although to be honest, when I write a question, it's very hard for me to judge how difficult others will find it, because it's easy for me! :-)

Also, thanks for pointing out that "in 1950" irregularity. Good catch. Once you pointed that out, it made me curious. I check the question on a couple other websites ---- it turns out, the underlined part is NOT the whole sentence. The final prepositional phrase, "in 1950", is the only non-underlined part and should not have been included in choice (A). I edited the question to reflect this. Again, when someone is just beginning their GMAT studies, confused about the question, confused about GC, etc., and that person posts a question, don't automatically assume the question is in its pure and pristine form. Critical thinking, my friend --- that might be the #1 skill the GMAT is testing, and certainly the #! kind of intelligence that will lead to success in the business world.

Does all this make sense?
Mike :-)

Yes Mike it does make sense. Thanks for reminding me that the people posting questions are aspirants like me.

Thank you

Dear jkaustubh,

I'm happy to help with this. :-)

First of all, on the issue of idioms --- how different prepositions are used in different situations, here's a free idiom e-book:
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2013/gmat-idiom-ebook/

Of course, the basic structure of a preposition phrase is relatively easy --- [preposition] + [object]. Caveats:
(a) the "object" is either a noun or something behaving as a noun
(b) that noun may have modifiers, including entire modifying phrases & clauses
(c) the object of a preposition must be in objective form --- in English, there's no difference in nouns between subjective & objective form, but it makes a different for personal pronouns, which must be in their objective form {me, you, her, him, it, them}.
(d) other objects that can act as nouns and be objects of prepositions are (1) gerunds, and (2) substantive clauses (a.k.a. noun clauses); see:
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/gmat-gramm ... d-phrases/
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/substantiv ... -the-gmat/

Prepositional phrases themselves are modifiers, and they are very flexible as modifiers. They act on two broad ways:
1) as an adjectival phrase --- that is, a noun-modifier, like an adjective
2) as an adverbial phrase --- like an adverb, modifying a verb, and adjective, or an adverb
see:
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/gmat-gramm ... d-clauses/
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2012/gmat-gramm ... d-clauses/

Does all this make sense?
Mike :-)

E is wrong because

I also Opted for E, Can some one give me indepth analysis of answer based on Bifurcation and in depth analysis of wrong answer choices as well.

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.


Excellent approach and great way of solving the question.

why E is wrong here?


E is wrong because

"The growth of the global economy" is incorrectly compared with "what it did ".



I also Opted for E, Can some one give me indepth analysis of answer based on Bifurcation and in depth analysis of wrong answer choices as well.


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
