Press Kudos if you like the post


i like this question. I will give you an explanation. give me kudos, if you are satisfied/

grammatically, "as" is used to compare 2 actions and "like" is used to compare 2 nouns. but meaningfully, "as" is used to show that two actions is done in the same way and "like" is used to show that two noun do the same action. it is clear that "as" and "like" show two different meaning relation.

in b, we do not want to show that two actions is done in the same way. we do not want to say that "thai village craft" have developed in the same way as other crafts. we want to say two kind of craft are similar in that they develop through a priciple.

moreover, in B, the verb tense "did" is not good here. we do not want to say that other craft used to develop through a principle.

Hi experts,
I reviewed this question again, and had same "did" problem here, i genuinely want your further explain.
I had a correct sentence from MANATTAN SC on Page 100.
MANHATTAN SC wrote:
As her brother DID, Ava aced the test.

there is no antecedent verb before "DID",
Did i miss something that "Did" in this context is used to replace an antecedent verb ?

and another question is should helping verb and antecedent verb be in same form ?
I have a correct sentence from GMATPrep
GMATPrep wrote:
Since 1990 the global economy HAS GROWN more than it DID during the 10000 years from the beginning of agriculture to 1950.

while I had a couple of sentences from MANHATTAN SC on Page 202
MANHATTAN SC wrote:
wrong: I have never seen an aardvark, but last year my father DID

Right: I have never seen an aardvark, but last year my father SAW.

it confused me a lot.

waiting for your reply
thanks a lot
have a nice day

Your first query:

Ideally "as did those of other cultures" should have been placed before or after the compared clause, not in between.

As did those of other cultures, Thai village crafts have developed.... would be better.

However this example still has the tense mix problem as highlighted in your second query. As mentioned in your example " Since 1990 the global economy...", GMAT seems to accept this tense mix issue.


can you please explain all the answer choices why they are wrong?

(A) as with
--> wrong comparison.

(B) as did those of
--> no reason to use past tense.

(C) as they have in
--> "they" is ambiguous.

(D) like in
--> wrong comparison

(E) like those of
--> correct.

The long sentence can be cut short and written as :

Thai village crafts, as with other cultures, have developed through X and incorporate Y.

or even shorter

Thai village crafts, as with other cultures, have XYZ.

Now as other experts have mentioned, the comparison is "Thai crafts Vs Crafts of Other Cultures" because it is illogical to compare crafts with cultures.

So, (E) like those of

The author is trying to compare crafts from Thai village with crafts from other cultures. Hence the only answer that compares crafts with other crafts is E

Thai village crafts, like those(crafts) of other cultures, have developed through the principle that form follows function and incorporate readily available materials fashioned using traditional skills

This is a comparison question, in which we need to logically compare noun "crafts" to noun "crafts" of other cultures or "those" of other cultures, in this case, "those" is referring to cultures of other villages.

Hence, Answer is E

Im sorry to ask an irrelevant question like this, but can anybody explain for me the grammar used in this part of the sentence : " that form follows function and incorporate readily available materials fashioned using traditional skills" . why does the word "follows" got the "s" and also the "fashioned using" part. Thanks a lot

Can someone please explain why option C is incorrect here?

I marked E but was a bit confused between C and E. I thought 'Thai village crafts have developed' could be parallel to 'as they (crafts) have (developed - omitted for ellipsis effect) in'.
