A) students who constantly review material actually retain less information than those who review in such a way that it seems somewhat fresh instead of over-rehearsed, and they tend to ---- found that is essential for this type of clause. Or we must use the infinitive as have found students to x where x is the verb


B) that students who constantly review material actually retain less information than those who, in reviewing material so that it seems somewhat fresh rather than over-rehearsed, tending to --- This is a fragment

C) that students who constantly review material actually retain less information than do those who review in such a way that the material seems somewhat fresh rather than over-rehearsed, and that this first group tends to --- The correct answer; Comparison is perfect and parallel ; use of rather than is idiomatic.

D) constant review of material results in less retention than do those individuals who, in reviewing in such a way that the material seems somewhat fresh instead of over-rehearsed, tend to --- wrong comparison; review compared with people

E) that students who constantly review material actually retain less information than those who review material so that it seems somewhat fresh instead of over-rehearsed, and that such individuals tend to --- instead of is not idiomatic

+1 for C. Quick Qs-B/w C and E, if it boiled down to the use of 'than those' and than do those which would be correct?

E will be plain wrong comparing what students retain with the other type of students. That is why a verb' do' is required to match the verb 'retain'

i thought "do" is elapsed comparison.
I think "these individuals" are quite ambiguous.
I am stuck with C and E but I picked b/c of "rather than" vs "instead of"
