Wineries in G, like wineries in NYC, create rich, full-bodied wines.

Wineries in both countries are compared.

(A) Like the wines from Germany, also an area with a temperate climate, wineries in upstate New York create rich, full-bodied wines. Wines are compared with wineries.

(B) Wineries in upstate New York create rich, full-bodied wines similar to the wines from Germany, which, like upstate New York, is an area with a temperate
climate. Correct choice. Wines from G are compared with wines from NYC. 'Which' refers correctly to Germany.

(C) Wineries in upstate New York create rich, full-bodied wines similar to Germany’s,which, like upstate New York, is an area with a temperate climate. 'Which' incorrectly refers to 'Germany's wines'

(D) Like Germany’s wines, wineries in upstate New York, also an area with a temperate climate, create rich, full-bodied wines. G wines are compared with NYC wineries.

(E) Similar to those from Germany, wineries in upstate New York, also an area with a temperate climate, create rich, full-bodied wines. 'also an area with a temperate climate' is not clearly telling that newyork, like Germany, is an area with temperate climate.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



As it stands the sentence implies that the comparison is between wines and wineries. This is not the case. You can compare wine with wine or wineries with wineries. Choices A and D have misplaced modifiers. The placement of ‘which’ next to ‘Germany’s’ in C is incorrect. ‘Which’ refers to Germany not Germany’s wines. It is not clear to what the ‘those’ in E refers. Grammatically it could refer to the wines or the wineries. Choice B is the correct answer.

A compares ‘wines’ to wineries, so its out
B sounds awkward
C compares Germany’s wineries to ‘upstate New York’. Out
D Wines are being compared to wineries again
E ‘those’ doesn’t have an antecedent

We are left with B. B is awkward but it is grammatically correct

Hello experts,
I have a prompt question about this one, so regarding choice E, is it possible to first put the pronoun, and then immediately the noun (wineries) OR is it mandatory to first have Wineries and then the pronoun those.

hi,
From the official explanation, it is stated that the choice (e) has ambiguity.

However, imo, “wineries” is stated right after the word “those” and “wines” is at the very last of the sentence.

How come this be ambiguity?
