why is C correct but A is wrong?


The word "colder" is used when there is an object of comparison. In this sentence, there is no object of comparison.

The word "cold" is used as a descriptor / adjective of geographic regions, and is used correctly in C.

1. We are not comparing two geographic regions for the coldness, therefore we need "cold" and not "colder".

2. The non-underlined part says " it is particularly important to have" . This means we need something for someone/something else, so "FOR" is required.


A. For homes in typically colder geographic regions

We need COLD and not COLDER.

B. For people in homes in typically colder geographic regions

*We need COLD and not COLDER.

*We need effective and efficient heating systems FOR HOMES, and not for PEOPLE IN HOMES directly.

C. For homes in typically cold geographic regions

D. People in typically colder geographic regions

*We need COLD and not COLDER.

*We need effective and efficient heating systems FOR HOMES, and not for PEOPLE IN HOMES directly.


E. Homes in typically colder geographic regions

Does not make any sense.
