A- In contrast to the ongoing trade imbalances with china and japan, the United states trade deficit with Mexico declined by $500 million as a result of record exports to that country
B- In contrast to ongoing trade imbalances with China and Japan,the United states sold record exports to Mexico,reducing its trade deficit by $500million

E- Compared to the ongoing trade imbalances with China and Japan,the United states record exports to mexico caused a $500 million decline in trade deficit with that country.

People say that this question is from GMATPrep. Has anyone come across it? What is the official answer, please? Honestly, I can't figure it out. Thank you for any explanations.


My point of view:

A- In contrast to the ongoing trade imbalances with china and japan, the United states trade deficit with Mexico declined by $500 million as a result of record exports to that country - RIGHT you are comparing trade imbalances and a trade imbalance of a country and the comparaison is correct (remember: you need to compare apples with apples)
B- In contrast to ongoing trade imbalances with China and Japan,the United states sold record exports to Mexico,reducing its trade deficit by $500million - You are comparing trad imbalance and a country
C- When compared with ongoing trade imbalances with china and Japan, the United states sold record exports to Mexico, reducing their trade deficit by $500 million - You are comparing trad imbalance and a country
D- Compared with ongoing trade imbalances with China and Japan , the united states sold record exports to Mexico, reducing the trade deficit by $500million - You are comparing trad imbalance and a country
E- Compared to the ongoing trade imbalances with China and Japan, the United states record exports to mexico caused a $500 million decline in trade deficit with that country. - You are comparing trad imbalance and a country and that country is wordy

Hope it helps!



I am not sure if my understanding is correct .

Compared to / Contrast to : to stress similarity between things

Compared with/Contrast with : to include both similarities and differences .

Based on meaning here . We are trying to show the something about the trade imbalances with China and Japan , United States and mexico .....
So i guess Compared with ie C , D are incorrect .

Could anyone throw some light on this ?

MGMAT SC 5th Edition Page 152 stated that we don't GMAT tends to ignore the difference of compared/contrast with and compared/contrast to. Just forget that rule, it's no more valid. Ron also said that in one of his comments on MGMAT Forum.

Additionally, "as contrasted with/to" are wrong.

Hope this helps.

Technically trade imbalance and trade deficit are the same thing. Both depict difference between import and export; however, record export is just export.

Got confused between A & E as the comparisons are

A) trade imbalances vs trade deficit
E) trade imbalances vs record export (Note carefully, we are not comparing trade imbalances with US but with US record export)

Hi Pariearth,

Both can be correct, there is a subtle difference in usage.

Both prepositions, to and with, can be used following compare. Neither is more correct than the other, but a slight distinction can be made in meaning.

To has traditionally been preferred when the similarity between two things is the point of the comparison and compare means ‘liken’: I hesitate to compare my own works to those of someone like Dickens.

With, on the other hand, suggests that the differences between two things are as important as, if not more important than, the similarities: We compared the facilities available to most city-dwellers with those available to people living in the country; to compare like with like.

But it looks like C has an issue with comparisons. It says that when compared with ongoing trade imbalances with china and Japan, the United states sold record exports to Mexico, reducing their trade deficit by $500 million.

So, this seems to be comparing "ongoing trade imbalances" with "the United states". This does not qualify to be a correct comparison.

Between A and E, and I chose E. After studying the problem, E makes an unparallel comparison between the trade imbalance with China... and the US exports to Mexico. You can get away with it, if the question has worse answer choices. But it doesn't. That said, since there's no parallelism to guide the reader, parallelism with the preposition "with", it's kind of unclear which country has the trade imbalance with China and Japan: is it US or Mexico? IMO A.

It' all about comparing objects that belong to the same category. Here, we need to compare foreign trade imabalnces with trade deficits. Comparing the trade imabalnces with US is incorrect, as seen in all option apart from A.

In contrast to the ongoing trade imbalances with china and japan, the United states trade deficit with Mexico declined by $500 million as a result of record exports to that country

A- In contrast to the ongoing trade imbalances with china and japan, the United states trade deficit with Mexico declined by $500 million as a result of record exports to that country

B- In contrast to ongoing trade imbalances with China and Japan,the United states sold record exports to Mexico,reducing its trade deficit by $500million

C- When compared with ongoing trade imbalances with china and Japan, the United states sold record exports to Mexico, reducing their trade deficit by $500 million

D- Compared with ongoing trade imbalances with China and Japan , the united states sold record exports to Mexico, reducing the trade deficit by $500million

E- Compared to the ongoing trade imbalances with China and Japan,the United states record exports to mexico caused a $500 million decline in trade deficit with that country. Also decline in trade deficit is redundant.

If you ask me, there's a couple of errors that haven't been mentioned:

a. In contrast to ongoing trade imbalances with China and Japan, the United States trade deficit with Mexico declined by $500 million as a result of record exports to that country.
Could be correct, although sounds complicated. It's worthwhile noticing that an "ongoing trade imbalance" is being compared to a "declining trade imbalance", so at least the comparison is apples to apples. Let's see other alternatives - CORRECT BY DISCARDING THE REST

b. In contrast to ongoing trade imbalances with China and Japan, the United States sold record exports to Mexico, reducing its trade deficit by $500 million.
Firstly, I'm not sure the US can sell "record exports". You can achieve record exports, your current year's exports sales could be record, but selling record exports is misleading. Also, the first part of the comparison (the trade imbalances with China and Japan) is being compared to what the US did (selling record exports), not to another trade imbalance/balance.

c. When compared with ongoing trade imbalances with China and Japan, the United States sold record exports to Mexico, reducing their trade deficit by $500 million.
When compared with sounds awful, as a general rule use "when compared to" and "in comparison with". Again the selling "record exports". Again the comparison between a trade imbalance and a record sale (apples with oranges)

d. Compared with ongoing trade imbalances with China and Japan, the United States sold record exports to Mexico, reducing the trade deficit by $500 million.
Again "with" instead of "to". Also, again apples and oranges. And yet again, "selling records"

e. Compared to ongoing trade imbalances with China and Japan, the United States sold record exports to Mexico caused a $500 million decline in the trade deficit of that country.
Now the "to" is correct, but it's now missing a "the" -> "Compared to the ongoing trade imbalances...". Also, again "selling records" and "apples and oranges".

So, despite being a tricky phrase, A) is still the most correct.

So, despite being a tricky phrase, A) is still the most correct.



Moreover, I find that country ambiguous. Unless one knows what trade deficit means, it is difficult to determine whether that country refers to United States or to Mexico. I also have serious doubt about the usage imbalances with China and Japan ; imbalances between China and Japan would probably be better.

The intended meaning here is that the trade imbalance with china and the imbalance with Japan were enlarging while the imbalance with Mexico declined due to record exports. Otherwise, the contrast will not hold water in the given context. Therefore, the trade imbalance of the US with other countries is under consideration here and not the trade imbalances between China and Japan, which is of no importance to the US.
Secondly, when exports hit the roof to a particular country, the imbalance with that county alone goes down. Therefore, as the text has indicated, the imbalance with Mexico has declined, implying that the exports to Mexico drove the imbalances down and not to some other country, be it Japan or China.

Takeaway: The intended meaning may not be explicit in higher level meaning –based questions.

Hi daagh,
you are bang on with the explanation here.
Also the usage trade imbalances with C and J..., DEficit with mexico follows parallelism in two clauses..
