225. Minnesota is the only one of the contiguous 48 states that still has a sizable wolf population, and where this predator remains the archenemy of cattle an sheep.

b) that still has a sizable wolf population, where
c) that still has a sizable population of wolves, and where
d) where the population of wolves is still sizable;
e) where there is still a sizable population of wolves and where

The OA is E because of parallel structure. However, I eliminated all choices with plural wolves thinking that "this predator" requires single "wolf". ETS didn't mention about the difference between wolf and wolves. Am I wrong in interpreting this way?

Let me try, Eminem..........oops, sorry, Emilem:

Wolf: Singular
Wolves: Plural. STANDARD.

a) that still has a sizable wolf population, and where

wolf population does not read well. i quickly eliminated this. it is like choosing b/w '...a prison for criminals' and '...a criminal prison' or better between '...a bevy of girls' and '...a girl bevy'.

b) that still has a sizable wolf population, where

Same reason as in (a)

c) that still has a sizable population of wolves, and where

close one. eliminated this because of 'that'. Since Minnesota is a place, i'll rather stick with 'where', which signifies a place.

d) where the population of wolves is still sizable;

quickly eliminated this. I needed to see a phrase that says, 'and where' at the end of the option

e) where there is still a sizable population of wolves and where

perfect for me. uses 'where' and also 'and where'. 'and where' is necessary b/c two things are involved: the population of wolves in minnesota, and the predatory behaviour of the wolf.

Aresene_Wenger, thanks for a great explanation. Referring to my specific concern, I understand that this predator should not be linked to wolves and just thought of as a species.
