Hi,

Need you help to understand the below question.

between-1990-and-2000-the-global-economy-grew-more-than-158813.html

Thanks,
Jai


Hi Jai. Here is my explanation.

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

1. Between 1990 and 2000 the global economy grew more than it did during the 10,000 years from the beginning of agriculture
Correct. "It" refers to "the global economy". The meaning is clear ==> Between 1990 and 2000 X grew more than X did during 10,000 years

2. Between 1990 and 2000 the growth of the global economy was more than that during 10,000 years, from when agriculture began
Wrong. "that" is put incorrectly. The structure of B is: the growth of X was more than that during 10,000 years. ==> "that" refers to what? Logically, "that" refers to the growth. Be aware of the phrase "the growth OF economy", which is parallel to "that". Thus, we need phrase "THAT + OF something" ==> "The growth OF X" || "That OF something". Otherwise, the sentence is not parallel

3. 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. "Exceeds" is present simple --> But we need past tense here. In addition, "that which had been" is totally wrong.

4. The growth of the global economy between 1990 and 2000 exceeds what it has been for 10,000 years, from when agriculture began
Wrong. "Exceeds" is present simple --> But we need past tense here. In addition, present perfect used for action was completed in the past is wrong.

5. 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. The structure is wrong. The growth of X exceeded what IT did ==> Pronoun "it" refers to "the growth of X". Verb "did" refers to "exceeded" ==> The structure becomes: The growth of economy between 1990 and 2000 exceeded what the growth of economy exceeded for ..............<== Totally awkward, because "did" should refer to verb "grew" as in A, NOT verb "exceeded" as in E.

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

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 ?

Hi dqtuan9627,

Let’s first understand the usage of the past perfect tense. The past perfect tense is used to represent an event that happened earlier in the past as compared to another event that took place later in the past. So, this tells us about the sequencing of the events: which event took place earlier and which took place later. Let’s take an example:

I had finished my assignment when he came to visit me.

The assignment was finished earlier. Later he came to visit me. Now, the same meaning can be conveyed by saying:

I finished my assignment before he came to visit me.

In this sentence, the past perfect tense is not used, but we still know which event happened earlier because ‘before’ tells us the sequencing. We can also say:

I had finished my assignment before he came to visit me.


So, when the sequencing of the events is clear from the context of the sentence, then using the past perfect tense becomes optional.


Now, coming to your question:

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

As explained above, both ‘did’ and ‘had done’ are correct here, but there is no option that uses ‘had done’. So, the correct answer is option A.


Hope this helps! :)

Regards,
Deepak

Hi qwerty12321,

Let’s take a look at the sentence structure of the above sentence:
• Between 1990 and 2000 the global economy grew more than
• it did during the 10,000 years from the beginning of agriculture to 1950.

This sentence presents a logical comparison between two clauses:
1. Between 1990 and 2000 the global economy grew
2. It did (grew) during the 10,000 years.

There is no meaning ambiguity in the sentence and the intended comparison is clear so the sentence is correct as it is. Now, if we place “what” after “than” it would make the comparison unclear.
Now, the compared entities will be “the economy grew” and “what it did”. This conveys a meaning that we don’t know what the economy did.

Also, since the sentence is correct as is, adding “what” to it will make the sentence wordy.



Hope this helps! :)

Regards,
Deepak

I am still confused on the usage of "from the beginning of agriculture" and "from when agriculture began".... Which one is the correct usage?

I saw in one of the posts that "growth cannot exceed/growth cannot be more but the economy can grow". Is it correct to infer this?

Thanks Anuj!

Hopefully you realized that the structure being used is: From X to Y.

So, X and Y should be grammatically similar. If we say:

....from when agriculture began to 1950

Then,
X = when agriculture began (a clause)
Y = 1950 (a phrase)

Phrases and clauses are not considered grammatically similar. Hence, this is a violation of parallelism.

p.s. Our book SC Nirvana discusses phrases and clauses, their application and examples in significant detail. If you can PM you email, I can send you the corresponding section.

Thanks a lot Education Aisle. I did not realize the concept of parallelism when evaluating the choices. This really helps!!

Hi!
Can you please explain how B violates the comparison rule? As you mentioned, if you want to compare one thing to another, you are suppose to use "that". B is comparing the growth of economy to one era to another. In my mind, they are NOT the same things i.e. two separate eras and two separate growths v/s in your example where it is the same chair that is in different state from a week before. :?: :?
It is like comparing growth of economy, say, in US and Mexico and considering them one in the same...


I agree with your question. I was thinking exactly the same. I do not see how B violates the comparison rule.

Short note on A vs B, from Ron's (MGMAT) post.

"That " usage in comparison:

constructions using 'that of' (or other preposition after 'that') must have EXACTLY parallel structures. in other words, if the second half says 'that during 10,000 years', then the preceding half must say 'the growth of ___ during something else' (or some other time preposition, such as before or after, in place of during).

Please tell me where I am wrong?



Hi dqtuan9627,

Let’s first understand the usage of the past perfect tense. The past perfect tense is used to represent an event that happened earlier in the past as compared to another event that took place later in the past. So, this tells us about the sequencing of the events: which event took place earlier and which took place later. Let’s take an example:

I had finished my assignment when he came to visit me.

The assignment was finished earlier. Later he came to visit me. Now, the same meaning can be conveyed by saying:

I finished my assignment before he came to visit me.

In this sentence, the past perfect tense is not used, but we still know which event happened earlier because ‘before’ tells us the sequencing. We can also say:

I had finished my assignment before he came to visit me.


So, when the sequencing of the events is clear from the context of the sentence, then using the past perfect tense becomes optional.


Now, coming to your question:

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

As explained above, both ‘did’ and ‘had done’ are correct here, but there is no option that uses ‘had done’. So, the correct answer is option A.


Hope this helps! :)

Regards,
Deepak


"had done during 10 000..." is absolutely wrong.
past perfect is used to show an action happening before another past action. if there is a specifice time marker, past perfect is not used.

I learned english in 1999 and I learned gmat in 2000
is correct sentence
I had learned english in 1999 and I learned gmat in 2000
is INCORRECT sentence.

this point of grammar is explained wrongly even in some famous grammar books.
