D.

No. Of sides is countable. So, greater is the apt Adjective. Boils it down to A,D.

First part of sentence ie.non underlined portion is in Active Voice.To maintain parallelism,later half should be also in Active Voice. A has Passive construction.So discarded. D is in properly Active Voice throughout.

Official Solution:



This question focuses on idiom and verb form. The first half of this sentence is written in the present indicative tense, and the second half of the sentence is written in the form of a command. The second half of the sentence introduces the implied pronoun you, which is not mentioned anywhere within the first half of the sentence. In order to agree with the first half of the sentence, the second half of the sentence should be in the indicative mood as well. The idiom greater than is correct.

A) The second half of the sentence introduces the implied pronoun you, which is not mentioned anywhere within the first half of the sentence. In order to agree with the first half of the sentence, the second half of the sentence should be in the indicative mood as well.

B) Higher than is not the correct idiom; the correct idiom is greater than.

C) The second half of the sentence introduces the implied pronoun you, which is not mentioned anywhere within the first half of the sentence. In order to agree with the first half of the sentence, the second half of the sentence should be in the indicative mood as well. Higher than is not the correct idiom; the correct idiom is greater than.

D) This sentence is correct as is. The second half of the sentence agrees with the first half of the sentence, and the idiom greater than is the correct idiom.

E) The second half of the sentence introduces the implied pronoun you, which is not mentioned anywhere within the first half of the sentence. In order to agree with the first half of the sentence, the second half of the sentence should be in the indicative mood as well. Higher than is not the correct idiom; the correct idiom is greater than.
