Quote:
(A) In California today, Hispanics under the age of eighteen account for more than 43 percent, compared with a decade ago, when it was about 35 percent.

(C) Today, more than 43 percent of Californians under the age of eighteen are Hispanic, compared with about 35 percent a decade ago.

A states that Hispanics under the age of eighteen account for more than 43 percent in california(all californians regardless of the age).
C states that more than 43 percent of Californians under the age of eighteen are Hispanic
C changes the meaning of the sentence.How can be it OA ?

I'm surprised to see the word 'californian' in a OG question. I thought this word is not on a dictionary.
I chose A solely based on this word...

Hi egmat ,

Following your course rules about modifiers, in option C or D we have:

C. Today, more than 43 percent of Californians under the age of eighteen are Hispanic, compared with about 35 percent a decade ago.

Compared is modifying the preceding noun, Hispanic. So Hispanic are compared with about 35 percent. Does this make sense?

D. Today, compared to a decade ago, Californians who are Hispanics under the age of eighteen account for more than 43 percent, whereas it was about 35 percent.

Here compared is modifying "today". So you are comparing today with a decade ago. For me this one makes more sense.

Could you help me please with this problem?

Guillem.
