In no other historical sighting did Halley's comet cause such a worldwide sensation as did its return in 1910-1911.

A. did its return in 1910-1911

C. in its return of 1910-1911

D. its return of 1910-1911 did

E. its return in 1910-1911

[Reveal] Spoiler:
Lets bring Obama into the picture instead of Hally, the comet for a moment

Rephrase with C - In no other election did Obama cause such a sensation as (he did) in his presidential race of 2008. (We can omit 'he did' and still convey the same meaning)
Sensation caused by Obama in all the previous elections is compared with sensation caused by Obama in presidential race.)
In no other historical sighting did Halley's comet cause such a worldwide sensation as (it did) in its return of 1910-1911

Rephrase with A - In no other election did Obama cause such a sensation as did his presidential race of 2008. ( Incorrect comparison. Sensation caused by Obama in all the previous elections is compared incorrectly with sensation caused by presidential election. But we should compare sensations caused by Obama in both the cases.)
In no other historical sighting did Halley's comet cause such a worldwide sensation as (did its return in 1910-1911)

B - no need to discuss. Had is not necessary. Changes the meaning.

Rephrase with D - In no other election did Obama cause such a sensation as his presidential race of 2008 did. (again sensation by Obama is compared with sensation caused by presidential election. Same problem as A.
In no other historical sighting did Halley's comet cause such a worldwide sensation as (its return of 1910-1911 did )

Rephrase with E - In no other election did Obama cause such a sensation as his presidential race of 2008. ( Here sentence ends abruptly. Here sensation caused by Obama is compared with presidential race itself.
In no other historical sighting did Halley's comet cause such a worldwide sensation as its return in 1910-1911

Ofcourse we all can come up with explanations once we know OA.
Nice One. +1 to the poster.

Dear All,

In the 12th ed, the OA is indeed (C).

Options (A) and (D) are wrong as the comparison is between the comet and its return. Choice (C) grammatically compares parallel prepositional phrases beginning with the preposition in: in no other sighting and in its return in 1910-1911.

Regards,

skim

this is an elliptical construction .. constructions in which certain words are omitted .. the omitted words are implied within the clause itself

In no other historical sighting did Halley's Comet cause such a worldwide sensation AS [it did] in its return of 1910-1911

AS introduces comparison .... 'in no other historical sighting' can be logically compared to 'in its return'

C is correct

Hallye's Comet is the subject

Halley's Comet did not cause such a worldwide sensation in any other historical sighting as [it did] in its return in 1910-1911

Let me know if the following helps:

The issues in this particular problem is not so much ellipsis (a common issue in comparisons), as the logic of the comparisons.

The following comparisons both mean the same thing, but compare different parts of the sentence:

1. Sue studies more at night than she does during the day. (The sentence compares Sue to herself.)

2. Sue studies more at night than during the day. (The sentence compares the times, 'at night' and 'during the day.')

Ellipses, i.e., leaving out a word or phrase because that exact word or phrase appears elsewhere in the sentence, can be identified any time a phrase is left incomplete:

Ex. Joe's is an especially well constructed house. ('house'-omitted)
Ex. Joe's shoes are nicer than Bob's. ('shoes'- omitted)
Ex. Joe is taller than Bob. ('is'- omitted)
Ex. Joe's house is better constructed than Bob's. ('is constructed'-omitted)

A problem arises when the word that would complete the phrase never shows up or does not make sense!
Ex. I have and always will love steak. ('loved'-missing!)
Ex. Joe hated steak as I child more than I do now ('hate'-missing!)
Ex. Joe eats burgers faster than the the rate of the burger-eating-champion. ('eats' is the verb that would complete the 2nd clause, but it wouldn't make sense. This is how you know the comparison is illogical.)

(For more on the logic of comparisons, check out the comparisons lesson at gmaxonline.)

Hi all ....

I have a query in this question :
Quote:
In no other historical sighting did Halley's comet cause such a worldwide sensation as did its return in 1910-1911.
A. did its return in 1910-1911
C. in its return of 1910-1911
D. its return of 1910-1911 did
E. its return in 1910-1911

The correct option C says : in its return OF 1910-1911.

Now isnt this wrong coz it gives a very confusing meaning that the comet (somehow) returned the year 1910-11 !!?!?

So IMO , the correct ans actually should be: in its return IN 1910-1911
Could this be a typo in OG-12 ?!?!

Why i say this, is because, if one looks in the answer's explanation in OG-12 :
Quote:
The single subject of this sentence is Halley’s Comet, and its single verb phrase is did cause. The comparison presented by the sentence is between adverbial phrases describing times when the comet was seen. Grammatically, the items being compared are parallel prepositional phrases beginning with the preposition in: in no other sighting and in its return in 1910–1911. This is the clearest, most economical way of presenting the information. The options that introduce a second verb (did or had) violate the parallelism and introduce a comparison between the comet itself (subject of the verb did cause) and the comet’s return (subject of the verb did or had).

It means that they actually wanted to say that the best option is IN and not OF 1910-11.

Any thoughts anyone !?!!!?

Concept tested: Parallelism, Verb tenses, ellipses
Difficulty:750
Illustration: Lets take a look at elliptical construction before going for the solution.
Consider the following sentence:
In no other play did William Shakespeare cause such a spectacle as Hamlet.
This is ambiguous. there are two possible interpretations:
(1) ...as IN Hamlet (this is analogous to the intended meaning of the posted problem)
(2) ...as DID Hamlet (i.e., you're comparing the spectacle caused by Shakespeare to the spectacle caused by Hamlet himself).
So we need the “in” to clarify the intended meaning.
Now lets look at the options.
Only C coincides with the concept that is tested above.

what is the concept you didn't understant

I understand that the construction is elliptical type.

Finding it difficult to eliminate option basis on did and in.
i understand that in is a form of //rism hence its correct,

We need to compare the sensations that other sighting in the history brought to the sensation which the sighting of comet's brought in the year 1910 -1911.

Now understanding this when i go through the options.

(A) did its return in 1910–1911>>>>>Did stands for sensation, hence i feel that sensation after sighting in 1910 - 1911 is being compared >>>>>>>>>which is correct.
(B) had its 1910–1911 return....This is out, had is not correct when it comes along with a recent event in past ,comparisons of two past event
(C) in its return of 1910–1911
(D) its return of 1910–1911 did>>>>>can be rephrased as " its return of 1910 - 1911 caused", if the implied meaning of caused is sensation than can be considered right.......have doubt in it how to eliminate.
(E) its return in 1910–1911>>>>>this can be rephrased as "In no other historical sighting did Halley’s Comet cause such a worldwide sensation as hailey's comet (its) return in 1910 -1911">>>>> which is also correct as it compares the past historical sighting to the sighting in 1910 - 1911

pls help me with my above explanations.

Also pls help me with the use of "its" as possessive pronoun..... Is Worlwide sensation a noun, which i think it isnt, its an adverbial phrase.... Correct me if i am wrong

I am aware of the fact that this question has been discussed in various places but i have few doubts on this.
1.Here since as is being used some comparison is being made right?So can someone explain what comparison is made in this questions?
2.In various forums its mentioned as becoz of parallelism also the option C is chosen as right answer.Can someone help me in undertstanding these two doubts i have on this question..

Hi Skamal,

Yes you are right "as" is indicating a comparison. The comparison is between the events "In no other historical sighting" and "In its return in 1910 - 1911"

In the question the parallel structures will be the two prepositional phrases. I would say that the question is more a comparison question than a parallelism one.

Apart from (C) other options are comparing "its return" with " In no other historical sighting"

As the question has been discussed several times I'll try a different approach. Let us form a simple question on similar grounds.

In no other public occasion I felt estranged as did my own wedding with Julia.

(A) did my own wedding with Julia
(B) had my wedding with Julia
(C) in my own wedding with Julia
(D) my own wedding with Julia did
(E) my own wedding with Julia

The above question contains a similar comparison and the answers have the same errors. What it does not contain is the middle part that the original sentence has which makes the two comparison elements far from each other. (C) clearly stands out as a winner.

In the above question the parallelism (if any) is between the two prepositional phrases - "In no other public occasion" and "in my own wedding with Julia". To sum up it is just a simple comparison question.

Hope that helps,

Vercules

for ans E , OG says "This sentence violates parallelism, implying a comparison between a prepositional phrase and a noun phrase."

(A) did its return in 1910–1911
(C) in its return of 1910–1911
(D) its return of 1910–1911 did
(E) its return in 1910–1911

I thnik did is implied in E (at the end ), so it becomes "in 1910-1911 did " which is a prepositional phrase.

can this concept be clarified?

thx

Hi eski

Lets consider (E) and see what structures are being compared.

In no other historical sighting did Halley’s Comet cause such a worldwide sensation as its return in 1910-1911 did.

The bolded portions in the above sentence are being compared.

In no other historical sighting --> prepositional phrase

its return in 1910-1911 --> a noun phrase or actually just a noun "return"

Another correct form of the sentence could be,

In no other historical sightings did Halley's Comet cause such a worldwide sensation as it did when it returned in 1910-1911.

The above sentence correctly compares "Halley's Comet cause" with "as it did" (it stands for Halley's comet and did stands for caused.

As the question has been discussed several times I'll try a different approach. Let us form a simple question on similar grounds so that we can identify the structures used in the sentence.

In no other public occasion I felt estranged as did my own wedding with Julia.

(A) did my own wedding with Julia
(B) had my wedding with Julia
(C) in my own wedding with Julia
(D) my own wedding with Julia did
(E) my own wedding with Julia

By removing the unnecessary words that are meant to confuse the test taker we can understand the meaning better.

In (E) "In no other public occasion" is compared with "my own wedding with Julia"; even if we add a "did" at the end, the comparison will not be proper.

Quote:
I think did is implied in E (at the end ), so it becomes "in 1910-1911 did " which is a prepositional phrase.

"in 1910-1911" is a prepositional phrase but "in 1910-1911 did" isn't. There are two parts of a prepositional phrase

i) preposition ii) object of the preposition

there is no verb in a prepositional phrase. Putting "did" in (E) will make it a clause, so again the comparison will be incorrect (Prepositional phrase with clause)

Hope that helps,

Vercules

Hi Vercules

Q. In no other public occasion I felt estranged as did my own wedding with Julia.

(A) did my own wedding with Julia
(B) had my wedding with Julia
(C) in my own wedding with Julia
(D) my own wedding with Julia did
(E) my own wedding with Julia

The whole statement , without omission is :
In no other public occasion I felt estranged as in my own wedding with Julia .

So comparision is between "no other public occasion" v/s "in my own wedding" both are preposition phase

Have I got the concept till this point?

if Yes, now if we take following statement:
In no other public occasion I felt estranged as own wedding with Julia .

is this a right construction , here 'in my' is omitted , is it implied?
if implied , then , as compares "on other public occasion" v/s "in my own wedding"
if no , then , as compares "on other public occasion" v/s "own wedding" -- which is wrong I guess .

A parallel structure question - in no other sighting did X do something than 'in' this particular sighting. The second 'in' is the most important thing in this sentence and, once you spot this, the answer can only be C.

Guys,
I've a question - C stands out from the rest for sure, but "in its return of 1910–1911" isn't this structure bit awkward?

Hi bagdbmba,

Sometimes a grammatically correct sentence might sound awkward, most probably because we are not used to a particular usage in our colloquial language.

For this reason, it is not advisable to identify errors based on how a sentence sounds.

This sentence presents a clear comparison and both the entities (in no other historical sighting and in its return of 1910-1911) are clearly parallel.

Therefore option C is the correct answer.

Also, since this is an official sentence, we can learn from this sentence that this usage is correct.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Krishna

Hi guys.
This is OG question, please do not post the wrong OA. OA is C for this question.
Explanation:

in no other historical Halley'sComet sighting did .............as in its return of 1910-1911

Only C keeps the comparison valid, other options do not maintain parallel structure.

Hope it helps.

In no other historical sighting did Halley’s Comet cause such a worldwide sensation as did its return in 1910-1911.

THE CORRECT SENTENCE SHOULD BE :-
In no other historical sightingdid Halley’s Comet cause such a worldwide sensation as (it did) in its return of 1910-1911.
THE HIGHLIGHTED PORTIONS SHOULD BE PARALLEL---THE DID SHOULD BE PARALLEL-----(IT DID) PORTION CAN BE ELLIPSE.......
(A) did its return in 1910–1911
(C) in its return of 1910–1911... CORRECT
(D) its return of 1910–1911 did
(E) its return in 1910–1911

Hi E-GMAT,

Whenever we used "AS" for comparision. Then "AS" should be followed by a clause. But in this sentence "In no other historical sighting did Halley 's comet cause such a worldwide sensation as in its return of 1910-1911"

The two items which are compared are 1.In no other historical sighting & 2.in its return of 1910-1911. which are prepositional phares . So is there any rule ,which i'm missing?

Thanks

Nitin Singh

Dear Nitin,

Thank you for posting your query here. As the previous poster has correctly pointed out, "it did" has been omitted in this sentence. This is a case of ellipsis, which can be applied in comparisons as long as the intended meaning is clear. This rule is covered in our concept file on comparisons as well as in our live session on Parallelism. Be sure to review those, if you haven't already done so.

To be sure that ellipsis is used correctly, first identify the two entities being compared. In this case, the two entities are:

1. The worldwide sensation Halley's Comet caused in other historical sightings
2. The worldwide sensation Halley's Comet caused in its return in 1910-11.

Since this intended meaning is clear in option C, it is the best choice.

I hope this helps to clarify your doubt!

Regards,
Meghna

(A) did its return in 1910–1911 - The comparison is made between Halley's Comet and its return
(B) had its 1910–1911 return - Incorrect sentence structure
(C) in its return of 1910–1911 - Correct parallelism maintained between the historical sighting and the return
(D) its return of 1910–1911 did - Incorrect Parallelism
(E) its return in 1910–1911 - Incorrect Parallelism

The answer is C because the comparison is in between other historical sighting and in 1910-1911
