Possibly as numerous as conventional galaxies, these (DIM galaxies)galaxies have the same general shape and even the same approximate number of stars as a common type of conventional galaxy, the spiral(Conventional galaxy), but tend to be much larger(Conventional galaxy). Because these (Dim galaxies) galaxies’ mass is spread out over larger areas, they have far fewer stars per unit volume than do conventional galaxies.

I think there is no pronoun ambiguity rule for these authors :-D . Please check whether I marked the galaxies correctly or not.

Hi QZ,
In addition to conventional galaxies, the universe contains very dim galaxies that until recently went unnoticed by astronomers. -- The first statement provides us with the context for interpreting what pronoun 'these' stands for.
Possibly as numerous as conventional galaxies, these galaxies(It refers to dim galaxies) have the same general shape and even the same approximate number of stars as a common type of conventional galaxy, the spiral, (the spiral is a common type of conventional galaxy)
but tend to be much larger. --> This describes a feature of dim galaxies
Because these galaxies’ (It refers to dim galaxies)mass is spread out over larger areas, they(refers to dim galaxies) have far fewer stars per unit volume than do conventional galaxies.

Hope this helps!! :-)

Yes it truly helps. But, then how come the answer to question 91 or 1 is C. It asks for conventional galaxies features...they diffuse more than dim galaxies...IMO diffuse means more spreaded. But as per passage it says dim galaxies are more spreaded.

Hope I am asking clearly

Hi QZ,
OA for Q 91 is B.
91. According to the passage, conventional spiral galaxies differ from low-surface-brightness galaxies in which of the following ways?
(B) They evolve more quickly than low-surface brightness galaxies. -- According to the passage, dim galaxies evolve much more slowly.(Read the last line of 1st paragraph) So, B is correct
