thank you for this post.

son of a gun


Can 'who' follow after, 'son of a gun'?

Also is it okay to use 'that' to refer to a person?

It's not likely, at least on the GMAT exam. Outside the GMAT exam, opinion is divided. Some people think it's perfectly okay, whereas others don't think it's appropriate to use that to refer to a person. For what it's worth, I think it's fine.

Hi GMATNinja

I have a doubt with the use of that as a pronoun in comparisons.

Official question #758 OG 2018
I read on one of the blogs that when your making adverbial comparison you use it was, they were
but when your making a noun comparison you use that or those to create a copy.

Is this understanding right. If so and I were to apply it to below OG question.

1) Prices at the producer level are higher today than they were yesterday.
Here they refers to => Prices at the producer level ?
also is this comparison correct?

2) Prices at the producer level are higher today than yesterday.
this also I guess is right ?

3) But when we see the correct answer choice it uses
Prices at the producer level are higher now than those of a year ago.
a) Although right what naturally came to my mind was that it should be they were ?
b) if the sentence would have been prices of "production" are higher now than those of a year ago, then those would not make sense ? Is this understanding correct. In such cases it will be better to use they were?
c) That said if I use demonstrative pronouns (that) to make a copy of the noun for eg. American Prices in the above statement does it bring American as an adjective to the copy.
d) If I use they, does it bring the original noun + any modifier with it. I guess they means the exact same thing?
