(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.

Answer: B

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.

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...
