New techniques in thermal-scanning photography, a process that records radiation from surface areas, makes it possible to study the effects of calefaction, or warming, of a river in greater detail than ever before.

(A) makes it possible to study the effects of calefaction, or warming, of a river in greater detail than ever before -"makes" is singular
(B) make it possible to study, in greater detail, the effects of calefaction, or warming, of a river than ever before -in greater detail is very far from the clause "than ever before"; as a result, the comparison isn't making much sense
(C) have made it possible to study in greater detail than ever before the effects of calefaction, or warming, of a river -Correct.
(D) make possible the study of the effects of calefaction, or warming, of a river in greater detail than it ever was before -"it" doesn't has any antecedent
(E) has made it more possible than ever before to study in greater detail the effects of calefaction, or warming, of a river -"has" is singular

(B) make it possible to study, in greater detail, the effects of calefaction, or warming, of a river than ever before
(C) have made it possible to study in greater detail than ever before the effects of calefaction, or warming, of a river

IN B : In greater detail ______________than ever before
IN C: study______________ the effects of calefaction, or warming, of a river

why C is better than B?


Although B is wrong because of tense error, also use of pronoun "IT" but C => have made it possible to study in greater detail than ever before the effects of calefaction, or warming, of a river => separate POSSIBLE TO STUDY______THE EFFECTS OF CALEFACTION
isn't it somewhat wrong

(B) is incorrect.

in greater detail, the effects of calefaction, or warming, of a river than ever before

The comparison is lost when we split .... in greater detail than ever before ...

(C) brings it together and is correct.

(A) makes it possible to study the effects of calefaction, or warming, of a river in greater detail than ever before
- "makes" = incorrect b/c you're talking about plural subject (techniques), so the verb tense should be "make" instead

(B) make it possible to study, in greater detail, the effects of calefaction, or warming, of a river than ever before
- the correct idiom is: "in greater detail than ever before".

(C) have made it possible to study in greater detail than ever before the effects of calefaction, or warming, of a river
- correct as is

(D) make possible the study of the effects of calefaction, or warming, of a river in greater detail than it ever was before
- "make possible the study" = awkward construction. also "than it ever was before" = just wordy, incorrect. this A/C is a trainwreck

(E) has made it more possible than ever before to study in greater detail the effects of calefaction, or warming, of a river
- "has" need be "have" because you're talking about plural subject (techniques). also "more possible...than ever before"? just weird. another trainwreck

Kudos please if helpful :)

Techniques is plural so will take a plural verb. A and E are eliminated.
D: make possible the study (awkward construction); techniques make possible the study that it was before ?
B: than ever before should modify detail.
