A is the correct one because resent findings support two thing:

- support to the theory that a black hole lies at the center of the Milky Way
and
- support to the theory of many of the 100 billion other galaxies estimated to exist in the universe.

So i think A is wright but i could be wrong

@Noboru,

(B) that a black hole lies at the Milky Way's center and - Milky Way's center is not good, center of Milky Way is better.

Also, only (A) suggests that black hole lies at the center of Milky Way and at the center of other galaxies, while in case of (B), substituting the expression in sentence makes the whole sentence awkward.

Recent findings lend strong support to the theory that a black hole lies at the Milky Way's center and many of the 100 billion other galaxies estimated to exist in the universe.

I eliminated B (C and D on same lines) based on

"Milky Way's center and many other galaxies"

And is comparing center with galaxy and so is wrong.

Nice question!
(D) and (E) are wrong because "...that of a black hole lies.." is wrong. The one being paralleled with OF is "at the center OF the milky way and OF many other galaxies"

(C) could be eliminated together with (B) because of it's usage of Milky Way's center... which is not parallel with that of the many 100 billion galaxies... ALSO, black hole IS LYING denotes happening right now... THe more appropriate verb tense is ETERNAL STATES which is SIMPLE PRESENT lies

Milky Way is one of the galaxies I suppose (though not sure )

So in my opinion author wants to say:

Recent findings lend strong support to the theory

that a black hole lies at the center of the Milky Way and

[same black hole lies at center]of many of the 100 billion other galaxies estimated to exist in the universe.

which can be written using option A. So thats why answer is A. But not a very good question

Between A and E, E suggests that the theory is of a Black Hole which is in the center of the milky way.This isn't true. Hence E eliminated.

Thus A

Set26-36

lets say phrase "A" is "the Milky way"
and phrase "B" is "many of the 100 billion other galaxies estimated to exist in the universe"

then the whole sentence takes the form:

Recent findings lend strong support to the theory that a black hole lies at the center of "A" and of "B".

which means" that a black whole exist at the center of "A" and at the center of "B"."

because we can omit the repeating words the sentence becomes:
"that a black hole exists at the center of "A" and of "B"."

Hence the answer is A.

Need preposition after 'and' and 'that' in begining is better than 'of'
(B) that a black hole lies at the Milky Way's center and

My take : Option A

D & E are out for the above mentioned reasons..

Usage of 'and' compels us to maintain d parallelism..

It is not only at the center of Milky Way but also at the center of other galaxies in d universe.. So 'center of' should be there and goes well with A..

Hope it helps..
