In Question 9:

9. Astronomers at the Palomar Observatory have discovered a distant supernova explosion, one that they
believe is
a type previously unknown to science.
(A) that they believe is
(B) that they believe it to be
(C) they believe that it is of

Idiom is believe x to be y rather then believe to be y. I found in many places that whenever we have idiom of form "ABC x DEF y" and if x is void, then the option is wrong. Correct me if I am wrong. Confused
