Straight E.
the new airfare.....also shortens.
Also, lessens is incorrect as "shorten the number of days" should be the correct structure.

Because the sentence would lack a main verb in this case.

The structure would look like this:

Quote:
"The new airfare, which allows X and also shortens Y."



The correct structure looks like this:

Quote:
The new airfare, which allows X, also shortens Y."


In this case the main verb is "shortens".

Why is lessens incorrect? I chose E because to a 7 day minimum from 14 sounds incorrect.

Technically, don't we lessen the minimum number of days & not shorten it?

Is pronoun "that" an issue in C?

I mean "that" in the choice can refer to more than one noun?

I believe that "that" is a misplaced pronoun in option C & is not really referring to anything.

Imo, C is not wrong grammatically. It is just that you don't need to repeat the verb here.

That of definitely refers to requirement of and this makes sense. But the meaning is clear even without that. Always consider repeating the verb only if the meaning is ambiguous without the verb

Eg: Ram likes pizza more than his wife
( 2 possible interpretation---> ram likes pizza more than his wife likes pizza

Ram likes pizza more than he likes his wife)

Meaning is ambiguous so you need to repeat the verb to make the meaning clear.

____________

In our case, only one interpretation makes sense so we don't need to repeat the verb. Though repeating is not wrong but it is less concise than not repeating it. Remember as Ron Purewal says--> Comparisons are like beauty contest.

Consider kudos if that helped.
