Standardized test scores of minorities are well below that of white students in spite of economic differences that are shrinking between the races.


(A) well below that of white students in spite of economic differences that are shrinking(wrong comparison,scores should be compared with scores)

(B) much below that of white students’ despite economic differences shrinking(same as in A)

(C) much below white students in spite of shrinking economic differences(the comparison of scores with white students is illogical)

(D) well below those of white students in spite of shrinking economic differences(correct)

(E) below white students’ despite their economic differences that are shrinking(construction is awkward and reference of their is ambiguous)

Choice D is correct.

Thanks

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



Choices A and B both have a mistake in agreement. Scores are plural, so you need ‘those’ not ‘that’. Choice C is incorrect because it implies that the comparison is between scores and white students. The pronoun ‘their’ in E has no clear reference. Choice D is the correct answer.
