I'm new to this concept(ellipses)

my question to you is why is highlighted sentence is incorrect

The laws in Pakistan are more restrictive than India.

Laws in Pakistan ------ India (Incorrect)
• The laws in Pakistan are more restrictive than laws in India.
Laws in Pakistan ------ Laws in India (Correct)

As per my limited knowledge

if subject in comparison is same than we dont need to repeat the subject so according to that it should be correct

Hi AshutoshB, the following sentence:

The laws in Pakistan are more restrictive than India.

is equivalent to:

The laws in Pakistan are more restrictive than India (is restrictive).

So, this sentence is basically comparing how restrictive laws in Pakistan are VS how restrictive India is.

This is clearly not the intent.

Any of these would be correct:

The laws in Pakistan are more restrictive than laws in India.

The laws in Pakistan are more restrictive than those in India.

The laws are more restrictive in Pakistan than in India.
