b out... represent not
C,D out ... urban zones -> new principle?
I prefer A to E due to 'it' meaning, guess it should refer to a new principle

That A. "are" doesnot work in CDE. They have other problem as well.

The intended meaning is that the proposed idea is not new but has been used in the past too.

A - wrong. Doesn't tell this distinction. Also, "it" after the semicolon has no antecedent.

B - wrongly phrased. Should have been "do not represent a new principle"

C - doesn't tell the contrast.

D - right choice. Shows the distinction.

E - wrong.

What's the OA?

I believe A, B = singular, CDE = Plural. Somehow I think the answer will be B, although it sounds awkward.

As odd as it sounds I will go for B because it is the only option that is singular.

In A do not is plural ( you do not say the boy do not but you say the boys do not), the it after the semicolon is singular so there is a cotradiction here.

CDE are all plural (are) and with singular referrants after the semi colon.

I thought about this after posting the first time. I'm still not convinced that C and D have a subject verb agreement. Consider this:

A. These boys don't make a good team.

B. These boys don't make good teams.

which one of these sound right? The choice A does. But does this violate the SV agreement?
