Hi chetan2u , carcass and all the other experts,

As per the OE in the OG, the glaring problem in the sentence is the use of incorrect antecedent for the relative pronoun "which" which is the non underlined section. While i agree with the explanation, I had a question with regards to the comparison done in all the options except the correct choice.

For example, in option B, "Compared to humans, the hearing sensitivity of monkeys"- this is incorrect, right ? It should rather be, "compared to that of humans, the hearing sensitivity of monkeys"

I ask this specifically because the OE doesn't point this out and eliminate this option on the basis of incorrect pronoun " are" used with a singular subject " the hearing sensitivity "

Kindly let me know whether i am thinking along correct lines.

Thanks and Regards,
Shradha

Hi Shradha,
You are absolutely correct in your observation..
OG is a good source of official questions but the explanations are not always great..
The reason it seems is that the Qs are written by experts and the explanations are left to others with some guidelines given to them..

Over a range of frequencies from 100 to 5,000 hertz, monkeys and marmosets have a hearing sensitivity remarkably similar to humans, above which the sensitivity begins to differ.

Issue: Comparison

Analysis:
1. In comparison question we need to make sure that compared entities are equal.
- All the choices except (E) incorrectly compares "hearing sensitivity" with "humans". Hence it is easy to eliminate them.

A. Over a range of frequencies from 100 to 5,000 hertz, monkeys and marmosets have a hearing sensitivity remarkably similar to humans

B. Compared to humans, the hearing sensitivity of monkeys and marmosets are remarkably similar over a range of frequencies from 100 to 5,000 hertz

C. Compared to humans over a range of frequencies from 100 to 5,000 hertz, the hearing sensitivity of monkeys and marmosets is remarkably similar

D. The hearing sensitivity of monkeys and marmosets, when compared to humans over a range of frequencies from 100 to 5,000 hertz, is remarkably similar

E. The hearing sensitivity of monkeys, marmosets, and humans is remarkably similar over a range of frequencies from 100 to 5,000 hertz

Answer: E.

This phrase "above which the sensitivity begins to differ" is the deciding factor.

The range given should come before this phrase. Only two options have this structure (D and E). But in D, "is remarkably similar" is not correctly modifying anything.

E it is.

Answer choice 'E' is correct - When highlighting the similarity between monkey and marmoset on one hand with human hearing on the other. It is easier to consolidate them in a sentence to avoid unnecessary elongation.
