Researchers are using computer images to help surgeons plan difficult operations and to develop programs that will work for doctors and nurses in the same way that flight simulators do for pilots, letting medical personnel practice their techniques and test their reflexes before they ever see a patient.

A. plan difficult operations and to develop programs that will work for doctors and nurses in the same way that flight simulators do
B. plan difficult operations and develop programs to work for doctors and nurses the same way as with flight simulators
C. to plan difficult operations and to develop programs that will work for doctors and nurses like flight simulators
D. plan difficult operations and in developing programs to work for doctors and nurses the same way as flight simulators
E. to plan difficult operations and developing programs that will work for doctors and nurses like flight simulators do''

In this an essential comparison issue, how the computers help (an action verb) is compared with how the simulators do (another action verb). That is the reason we can dump choices B, C and D for not comparing the action but the simulators themselves.
It is obvious then in E, to plan is not parallel with developing and as the use of like to compare an action is wrong. Therefore A.

Hello Verbal Experts,

I eliminated option B and D on the basis of redundancy pair 'in the same way - as'.

Is this correct? Please let me know later.

Thanks in advance!

Hello SidJainGMAT,

I would like to help you out with this one. :-)


Your analysis is correct. The expressions in the same way and as both present comparison. Hence, using both the expressions together does lead to redundancy in Choices B and D.


Hope this helps. :-)
Thanks.

B… makes it sound like the Surgeons are developing the programs. Definitely out.
C…this has a degree of ambiguity that means that it could mean the same thing as B.
D…tense difference breaks parallelism
E…’as’ should be used for comparison here, not ‘like’

A is the correct option.

(A) plan difficult operations and to develop programs that will work for doctors and nurses in the same way that flight simulators do

(B) plan difficult operations and develop programs to work for doctors and nurses the same way as with flight simulators

(C) to plan difficult operations and to develop programs that will work for doctors and nurses like flight simulators

(D) plan difficult operations and in developing programs to work for doctors and nurses the same way as flight simulators

(E) to plan difficult operations and developing programs that will work for doctors and nurses like flight simulators do


Option C is wrong because the comparison is not correct.
"that will work for doctors and nurses" is being compared with "flight simulators ". How some thing will work is being compared with a noun i.e "flight simulators " . This is illogical and incorrect.

Also the correct idiom is like x , y. X and Y are both nouns. Here " that will work for doctors and nurses " is a noun clause and "flight simulators " is a noun. So "like" can not be used for comparison.

Hi,
Option C is wrong for two reasons..
(I) Usage of LIKE..
what we have after LIKE is flight simulators do for pilots..
We cannot use like to compare an action, so AS is the better way to compare
(II) Parallelism.
to plan difficult operations and to develop programs that will work for doctors and nurses..
to help surgeons to plan difficult operations and to develop programs that will work for doctors and nurses.
So, to help surgeons to develop programs that will work for doctors and nurses IS illogical..
We are looking for parallelism
So, computer images to help surgeons plan difficult operations and to develop programs that will work for doctors and nurses in the same way that flight simulators do for pilots IS the correct way.

We are trying to compare the way programs will help doctors and nurses to how flight simulators help pilots.

(A) plan difficult operations and to develop programs that will work for doctors and nurses in the same way that flight simulators do [for pilots]

(B) plan difficult operations and develop programs to work for doctors and nurses the same way as with flight simulators [for pilots]
Wrong use of "as with" for comparison. We are trying to compare the manner in which the programs and flight simulators help.

(C) to plan difficult operations and to develop programs that will work for doctors and nurses like flight simulators [for pilots]
Wrong use of "like" for comparison.

(D) plan difficult operations and in developing programs to work for doctors and nurses the same way as flight simulators [for pilots]
Wrong use of "the same was as" for comparison.

(E) to plan difficult operations and developing programs that will work for doctors and nurses like flight simulators do
-ing and infinitive should not be mixed in a comparison.
