A.

B. like Thailand and Indonesia, the Philippine nation consistently exhibits fertility rates exceeding all

C. such as Thailand and Indonesia, the fertility rates exhibited by the Philippine nation are consistently exceeding those of all

D. such as Thailand and Indonesia, the Philippine nation's fertility rates consistently exceed all those of

E. such as Thailand and Indonesia, the Philippine nation consistently exhibits fertility rates that exceed those of all


Apples with oranges

A, B - wrong

D - 'all' is not right place suggesting again countries and not fertility rates.

Between C and E - tough one.

C - passive voice - wordy

I go with E

Agree, (E) is the best answer. (C) uses the fertility rates as the subject although there is a comparision with other nations such as T and I. (E) corrects this by replacing the rates with the Philippines. cheers

E is the clear winner.
A and B are out because of using 'LIKE'

C and D are out for faulty comparison.

E is the best.

A, B, C & D - Eliminate - Wrong comparison.
Left with B & E

E - correctly compares the fertility rates.

Hence E should be the answer.

"rates that" exceed those of

Is this correct?

Yes, D's comparison is not correct:

such as Thailand and Indonesia
(<==those are nations), the Philippine nation's fertility (<==compared to a fertility ) rates consistently exceed all those of

E correctly compares nations with nations

'Like' is not the correct choice in this construction. Also, the GMAT prefers ‘such as’ to ‘like’ for examples. This eliminates A and B.

A, C, and D compare ‘Thailand and Indonesia’ and ‘fertility rates’ … wrong comparison.

B compares ‘fertility rates’ to ‘Southeast Asian neighbors (countries) … wrong comparison.

E: Correct
