Quote:
Books in European libraries last longer than books in libraries in the United States because, although the climate in Europe is fairly humid, libraries there are not subjected to the extremes of temperature and humidity that damage collections in the United States.

A. because, although the climate in Europe is fairly humid, libraries there are not subjected to the extremes of temperature and humidity that

B. because, although the climate in Europe is fairly humid, libraries there are not subject of the extremes of temperature and humidity as those that

HI GMATNinja, mikemcgarry, egmat, RonPurewal, DmitryFarber, MagooshExpert (Carolyn), ccooley, GMATGuruNY ,

IN Option B if we change subject of to subjected to then Option would be best?

No, that wouldn't fly. The last part doesn't convey any sensible meaning. The core here is "Libraries [in Europe] are not subject to the extremes as those [that damage US libraries]."

First, the "as" serves no function. We'd need something like "are not subject to the same extremes as are US libraries." Also, there's no reasonable antecedent for "those." Using "those" implies that there are two kinds of extremes: those that DON'T EXIST in Europe and those that DO EXIST in the US. This is pretty weird.

So in short, I love it! :D No, B is no good even with that fix.

A. because, although the climate in Europe is fairly humid, libraries there are not subjected to the extremes of temperature and humidity that

B. because, although the climate in Europe is fairly humid, libraries there are not subject of the extremes of temperature and humidity as those that

C. because, although the climate in Europe is fairly humid, libraries there are not subjected to the extremities of temperature and humidity as

D. because the climate in Europe is fairly humid, but still libraries there are not subject of the extremes of temperature and humidity as

E. because the climate in Europe is fairly humid, but libraries there are not subjected to the extremities of temperature and humidity such as those that

A is very clearly the only possible right answer here, but i am still hesitant to conclude that A is a perfect sentence. THERE is vague in A, B, and C. Is THERE referring to US or EU??
