(D) as extensive as it was ten years ago, if not more than.
(E) as extensive as it was ten years ago, if not more so.

let us ...

"the use of pestisides" is subject that is compared here.

so choice A .

A - it should be

1) ten years
2) comparsion should be between the "use of .." in present time and "the use of" ten years ago"

B - same as A

C - same problem

D and E uses correct comparision..

But D is incomplete

so best choice :E[/quote]

Why D is imcomplete? Any specific reason? If we rearrange like this....it also makes sense...

" as extensive as, if not more than, it was ten years ago "

so...what does IMCOMPLETE mean? Thanks for further explanation

JUst got it....

as extensive as, if not more extensive, than it was 10 years ago
=
as extensive as, if not more so, than it was 10 years ago
=
as extensive as it was 10 years ago, if not more so ( we have to omit than because there is no object behind )

Is it right?
