Which can't modify people.

The growth cannot by exceeded by a company. Disparate subjects cannot be compared.
Quote:
C) known for his dictatorial management style and for his innovative ventures, the growth of Apple Inc. exceeded that of any.

IMO "any" should be "any other". We compare Apple to others.
Quote:
D) known for his dictatorial management style and for his innovative ventures, Apple Inc. exceeded any.

Changes the meaning. Original sentence compares growths, not companies.
Quote:
E) known for his dictatorial management style and for his innovative ventures, the growth of Apple Inc. exceeded that of any other

Correct.

usage of any vs anyother

Shanghai is larger than ....... city in India

Ans: any since shanghai is not in india use of any is correct
Shanghai is larger than ....... city in china

ANs:anyother since shanghai is in china use of anyother is correct..

here we are comparing the growth of apple( technology related company) to growth of other technology related company ..

So use of any other is right!!!

Skamal sir- how are we supposed to know that the particular city quoted in the question belongs to the same country- as shanghai is in china is known to all. some random city (in place of shanghai) may not be known to us. then how do we decide between 'any' and 'anyother' ??

Hi hari,
If you see any GMAT like question you don't need to use much of the outside knowledge.
Even in the question above Apple is a well renowned(technology) company which requires very little common sense to answer.

I am 100% sure that GMAT wont give you an answer choice only based on that error say any vs anyother

IMO E should be the answer

A) which was known for his dictatorial management style and for his innovative ventures, the growth of Apple Inc. exceeded any. which does not fit in as it cannot modify Steve Jobs
B) known for his dictatorial management style and for his innovative ventures, the growth of Apple Inc. was exceeded by no other. incorrect comparison of growth with company, it should be growth of any other company
C) known for his dictatorial management style and for his innovative ventures, the growth of Apple Inc. exceeded that of any. any other preferred over any, since other introduces some other company
D) known for his dictatorial management style and for his innovative ventures, Apple Inc. exceeded any. growth has to be compared
E) known for his dictatorial management style and for his innovative ventures, the growth of Apple Inc. exceeded that of any other Correct

i think that here someone is going in the wrong direction.

I see "which" considered as modifier cannot modify person. I never hear this rule by Ron Purewal, and other instructors out there (at least from the most important exponents of verbal part of the test).

IF you rely only on grammar you will fail on this test. I hope not, of course but......

The only rule is the context, that's it. No matter what.

To have the ideas more clear follow this lesson

Moreover

Quote:
WHICH for non restrictive clauses.

As I can see I perfectly do read

During the tenure of Steve Jobs, ..............................................., the growth of Apple Inc. exceeded any large technology company in the world.

I do not see that the meaning falls apart

Option A is incorrect because of "which"
Option D is wrong because "the growth of Apple Inc" should be exceeded not "Apple Inc"
Option B is incorrect because of use of passive voice
In Option C "any" should be followed by "other".
