I think the proposed "plan" is implicit here.

I will go with A here

Between A and E (since the "it" is best), I choose A.

"Not new in principle", I believe, has a different meaning than "do not represent a new principle".

I will go with E. IT refers to principal that was employed in PR.

I will go with B.

I am ruling out A, C & E as clauses separated by ";" has to have a clear subject.

In C & D we are comparing "development zones" to principle.

(A) do not represent a new principle; it
(B) represent not a new principle, but one that - weird since you cannot represent something thats not similar
(C) are not a new principle; the same one - weird
(D) are not a new principle, but one that
(E) are not new in principle; it

Pls. explain your ans.


I felt D was the cleanest.

Read the above comments, what does "it" here refer to??

The first time when I read this SC, it was a bouncer to me. Couldn't make head nor tail out of it.

Anyway, will have another go at it.

I think the noun 'represent' is a must in the sentence, which co-relates 'zones' with 'principle'.

By which, we are with left 'A' & 'B'

'B' - not a...but one seems idiomatic. More concise and direct.

'B' makes sense
