As far as I know in the GMAT equivalent or equal to is used for comparing quality not quantity.

The rise in the level of pollutants in the Yangtze River is almost equivalent to the level of pollutants in the Ohio River.

(A) equivalent to the level of pollutants in: ILLOGICAL COMPARISON, RISE WITH LEVEL.

(B) the same as that in the level of pollutants in: CORRECT COMPARISON, that REFERS BACK TO rise

(C) the same as the level of pollutants in: SAME AS CHOICE A

(D) equal to that of: ANTECEDENT FOR PRONOUN that IS AMBIGUOUS. BESIDES, that CANNOT REFER TO ENTIRE PHRASE 'rise in the level of pollutants'

(E) the equivalent of that in
SAME AS D + AWKWARD CONSTRUCTION

I was curious, what can 'that' legally refer to?

I am guessing nouns (Obvious)
Can it refer back to phrases or clauses?

Can you please clarify this for me?

(A) equivalent to the level of pollutants in
Wrong comparison- rise with level

(B) the same as that in the level of pollutants in
Correct comparison - rise with rise

(C) the same as the level of pollutants in
Again wrong comparison- rise with levels

(D) equal to that of
Again wrong comparison- rise with levels

(E) the equivalent of that in
Again wrong comparison- rise with levels

"D" compares the rise in the level of pollutants in Y to the rise in O. It should compare it to the rise in the level of pollutants in O, not the rise itself.
