Hi mikemcgarry,

Happy thanksgiving.

A quick question regarding B. I understand the issue you mentioned with grow and growth [i. e. VERB vs NOUN issue]; I discarded B and opted for A for another reason, and that is - "from when" in B

Is "from when" a correct structure to refer to a time period?

Regards
RzS

Dear TheRzS,

I'm happy to respond.

One of the uses of "when" is to introduce a substantive clause, a clause that acts as a noun. Any substantive clause can be the object of any preposition.

There are other arrangements in which a "when" clause would follow "from," but that case is the most common.

Does this make sense?
Mike

OK, that means I picked right answer but but my reasoning was flawed.
Thank you mikemcgarry for your excellent explanation.

I rejected D & E because "It" could refer back to both "The growth" and "The global economy". Am I correct?

I have a doubt - I rejected D & E because "It" could refer back to both "The growth" and "The global economy". Am I correct?
Further, there no proper comparison in B and C. So I rejected them and selected A. I am not sure if I did the right thing because none of the post I saw say this....
