I have been using the MGMAT SC guide to prepare for my upcoming GMAT exam next month.
Whilst studying from the guide, I came across a couple of doubts.I have yet to complete the whole guide(so I apologise in advance in case my doubts are answered later on in the book itself).

1. Chapter 5, Pronouns: "Also, do not use that or those in place of nouns, unless you modify that or those to make them New copies."

Going by this rule, would the following Sentence be wrong:
"The late 80's saw the fish market boom and those were the years when for the first time,the ports were filled with new varieties of fish."

I might be wrong, but doesn't the "those" here refer to the same period in time rather than making a new copy?

2.Chapter 6, Modifiers:
"An Adjective modifies only a noun or a pronoun,..."
Would the following sentence be wrong:
"The way he tackled the situation was brilliant."

Does "brilliant here modify the verb "tackle" or the noun "the way"?

Perhaps, "He tackled the situation brilliantly" would be better because of the adverb usage, but does the GMAT accept the former sentence as well?

If you have any questions
