(A) do not represent a new principle; it
(B) represent not a new principle, but one that
(C) are not a new principle; the same one
(D) are not a new principle, but one that
(E) are not new in principle; it

What's the OA on this one? I go with A, they do not represent a new principle. It refers to the principle so saying 'it was employed in Puerto Rico is perfectly fine'

Happy to discuss further

Cheers

The zones are clearly not a new priinciple but represent one. Only A and B stand. In A 'it' does not have a clear antecedent. Therefore, only B stands. But is correct coordinating cojunction in B and parallelism is mantained throught the sentence.

I think it should be A because "it" refers to the principle and not the "Zones"
B,C,D and E sound awkward

The it in the 2nd part represents new principle. So C,D,E are out. now from A and B. Ot of both A nad B option B seems more logical and meaningful and gramatically correct.

can u help here.I have doubt.
As far as I have practiced, "one " and "that" are never used together.

I will go for B.
In option B, NOT X, BUT Y comparision is clearly used. Hence no need to see other options

Seems like there's still some confusion about what's right here...

D is wrong here,

if D is split into branches, it will read as

The proposed urban development zones are not a new principle

The proposed urban development zones are one that .... (we have plural proposed urban developement zones, but one is singular)

if B is split into branches, it will read as

The proposed urban development zones represent not a new principle

The proposed urban development zones represent one that ...

B maintains parallelism

B is definitely the only valid answer.

C and D introduce the idea of the zones being "a new principle." Zones can't be a principle; they can represent one. (The fact that we're saying they're not a new principle doesn't really make a difference.)

A and E use "it" without a valid antecedent. If the zones aren't a new principle, then what does "it" stand for? It can't be "the old principle" if none has been mentioned!
