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?
