Hi why is option E wrong ; not able to understand clearly.

Hi Archit, with E, the sentence is:

The human growth hormone is secreted in higher concentrations when asleep than when awake.

This could be mis-interpreted as if human growth hormone is asleep/awake!

Consider a similar sentence:

Peter is less alert when asleep than when awake.

Again, Peter is asleep/awake.

In E, “when “ idiom talks about any specific time, but during gives us information on period. Since meaning of the sentence deals with sleep hours and awake hours, it should be conveyed with “during”.

In the question

In higher concentration ( prepositional phrase) - what is it modifying ? Logically it should modify verb "is secreted".

Can it jump over the "during sleep" to modify the verb "is secreted" ?

Hi alia24

In choice E the subject for asleep/awake is not clear. It tells us that the human growth hormone is asleep and awake.

It doesn't convey the meaning properly.

'When' refers to exact point of time in GMAT. So here the meaning of when refers to only time when one is asleep. what about throughout the sleep ? Eg. If someone falls asleep at 9 pm, but is sleeping for 6 hours, option E only refers to 9 pm. But meaning is that the hormone is secreted during the entire time when one is sleeping. Same logic can be analogously applied to 'when awake'. Hope this helps.

The human growth hormone, produced by the pituitary gland, is secreted during sleep in higher concentrations than when awake.


A. during sleep in higher concentrations than when awake : Placement of "in higher concentrations" is not right. It should be next to "is secreted". Parallelism is also not clear. Are we comparing concentrations or sleeping and waking hours. Too many errors in A

B. when sleeping in higher concentrations than waking hours : Same as A

C. in higher concentrations during sleeping than waking :1st error of A is okay here but who is sleeping and waking???

D. in higher concentrations during sleep than during waking hours : This changes to sleep and hours. Noun entities are compared. Seems no error

E. in higher concentrations when asleep than when awake : who is asleep and awake. Hormone??? No....

I think we have to make an ellipse, but it's not matching the waking hours? Help!

A and B seem to suggest that it is the sleep that is high in concentration and not the levels of hormone. Eliminate A and B. E can be eliminated for incorrectly using the relative pronoun 'when'. C seems to be comparing the period of sleep (say 10:00pm to 6:00am) with waking (means at 6:00am). D is right because D compares the period of sleep (10:00pm to 6:00am) and the period of waking hours (6:00am to 10:00pm).
