Hi,

The correct idiomatic expression is "The hypothesis that".. so we can eliminates A, B and E.

Indeed D really tempts us to select it, but D states that this hypothesis is the ONLY hypothesis that is gaining interest among astrophysicists. This changes the meaning of the sentence, hence this is wrong..

So C is correct answer.

A)of dark matter consisting of giant particles, light-years across in length, width, and depth, is gaining interest among astrophysicists.Incorrect.."hypotheis" is a concept/proposal/message... so we need to tell the concept..not what the concept is about... so Hypothesis "that" is the correct way

how many of you would pick the rigth answer without relying on the idiom of this sentence ??' based on only the logic ??



Hi Carcass,
Initially i went for the meaning approach(Still using it), Since understanding the meaning is important so that it will easy to eliminate wrong choices, and when i was doing SC questions, i was able to eliminate few wrong answers with the meaning and logic.

Then comes the rules when you are struck between 2 or 3 answers choices, i'm not sure whether it is correct, but thats how i do :)

Normally, the pattern in A,B,C will not stand together in one question; each will appear in different questions. Since these patterns are important, test takers must learn them.
