1.Eliminated C,D and E first of all; Reason --> Subject Verb Number Agreement (all failed)
2.A and B are left.
3.Elimniated B since "that" should refer to a singular noun/pronoun.But here we are asked about the "sightings".
4.So A :D

My first explanation in gmatclub ;) Hope i made it clear :p

A is the answer

sightings have increased , the number has declined

B)have markedly increased, while that of songbirds that are tallied by volunteer surveyors has declined
for sightings those should come..Change in meaning as well


(C)has markedly increased, while the number of songbirds that are tallied by volunteer surveyors has declined
Plural have is required

(D)has markedly increased, while songbirds tallied by volunteer surveyors have declined in number
Same as C

(E)increased markedly, while there was a decline in the number of songbirds tallied by volunteer surveyors
wordy due to there was


Give kudos if it helps

The correct form should be

sightings have increased , the number has declined

B)have markedly increased, while that of songbirds that are tallied by volunteer surveyors has declined

incorrect usage of "that" and distorted meaning.


(C)has markedly increased, while the number of songbirds that are tallied by volunteer surveyors has declined
Plural have is required

(D)has markedly increased, while songbirds tallied by volunteer surveyors have declined in number
Same as C

(E)increased markedly, while there was a decline in the number of songbirds tallied by volunteer surveyors

Since and while together is not a problem!Since is used for time frame and while is used for kind of comparison.
meaning-There was a wildfire in Georgia-sightings of black bears, savannah cats, and bobcats increased-sightings of songbirds declined-the sightings increase/decrease is based on tally by volunteer surveyors.
Hope it helps.

Is there no comparison error here? Where the sightings are being compared to number?
