(A) are efficient, so that the water does not overflow on the land; otherwise,

(B) are so efficient that the water does not overflow the land; were it to do so,

(C) so efficient that the water does not overflow on the land, or else

(D ) efficient, so that the water does not overflow on the land, or

(E) efficient so that the water does not only overflow the land; if it did


Hi Expert,
I've a curiosity about the red part. In the red part, it has been written that ''Cherapunji receives more rainfalls than any other site of the world''. I can simply write the above part as below.
x receives more rainfalls than y.
Is it:
--->(1) x receives more rainfalls than x receives y?
or, ---> (2) x receives more rainfalls than WHAT y receives?
Definitely the original sentence indicates the second one. right?
So, I think, there must have a verb for any other site of the world. The correct sentence must be like below.
''Cherapunji receives more rainfalls than DOES any other site of the world''.
What's your opinion honorable expert?
Thank you...


"Cherapunji receives more rainfalls than (Cheranpunji receives) any other sites."... this sentence does not make sense. The only possible meaningful construction is:
"Cherapunji receives more rainfalls than any other sites (receive rainfalls)."
Hence omission is alright.

However in the following case omission would not be allowed:
I like chocolates more than Madhu.
Both the following constructions make sense:
I like chocolates more than (I like) Madhu.
I like chocolates more than Madhu (likes chocolates).
Hence in this case omission makes the sentence ambiguous.

HaHaHa. Brother, I mistakenly used the word DOES in the wrong place. The use of DOES should be fixed after the word 'world'.
Here is my example below about to fix the sentence.
I love GMAT more than sayantanc2k.
The above sentence is wrong. This one can be fixed by 2 ways like below.
1/ I love GMAT more than I love sayantanc2k.
or,
2/ I love GMAT more than sayantanc2k DOES.
The original question says:
Cherapunji receives more rainfalls than any other site of the world.
This sentence doesn't make any sense to me.
So, this sentence must be fixed by the following 2 ways.
1/ Cherapunji receives more rainfalls than Cherapunji receives any other site of the world. ---->But, unfortunately this sentence doesn't make any sense according the original sentence!
or,
2/ Cherapunji receives more rainfalls than any other site of the world DOES.
Am I right my honorable expert?
Thank you...

Do you think the following sentence is correct? I mean can we make omission here, sayantanc2k? If not, how can we fix the sentence. It's too much urgent to know brother.
Nowadays online education is more organized than before.
Thank you brother...

(A) are efficient, so that the water does not overflow on the land; otherwise,

(B) are so efficient that the water does not overflow the land; were it to do so,

(C) so efficient that the water does not overflow on the land, or else

(D ) efficient, so that the water does not overflow on the land, or

Hi Guys,

Can any of you tell me in the correct answer choice option B " were it to do so" , 'it' is referring back to which noun (land or water).
As per my understanding the pronoun must refer back to immediate preceding noun. Please correct me where am i going wrong.

Thanks
Amaresh

You are right in that the sentence 1 does not make sense and the sentence 2 does. Therefore omission IS ACCEPTABLE because the meaning is not ambiguous in this case. If both made sense, then the meaning would be ambiguous, and then omission would NOT BE ACCEPTABLE.
