The use of gravity waves, which do not interact with matter in the way electromagnetic waves do, hopefully will enable astronomers to study the actual formation of black holes and neutron stars.

A) in the way electromagnetic waves do, hopefully will enable
B) in the way electromagnetic waves do, will, it is hoped, enable
C) like electromagnetic waves, hopefully will enable
D) like electromagnetic waves, would enable, hopefully
E) such as electromagnetic waves do, will, it is hoped, enable

[Reveal] Spoiler:
I always don't understand this point of grammar. Gravity waves do not interact with matter like electromagnetic waves. Clarify on what this means, I think it means it does not interact with matter that is like electromagnetic waves.

Gravity waves do not interact with matter like electromagnetic waves do interact with matter.

Do you cut out the "interact with matter" part to make it more readable. Is that what people do who speak English?

You have to understand stuffed bears are foreigners like someone from Russia or India.

(B) is right. Technically, the word "hopefully" is an adverb form of the word "hopeful," which is used to describe one's state of mind about a particular thing.

For example:

JP is hopeful that he will get a good score on the GMAT.
JP thought hopefully about his future GMAT score.

But:

JP will, it is hoped, receive a high score on the GMAT.

or:

It is hoped that JP will receive a high score on the GMAT.

I selected B. but need some more explanation about the use of "hopefully" in A. Is "hopefully" misplaced, or misused as well?
I mean if position is changed from " hopefully will enable" to "will hopefully enable", will A also be correct? or "hopefully" is not proper in either position.

Can I say safely here that in original sentence "hopefully will enable" = "may enable"? If yes, B is changing the meaning.
Need help from verbal gurus!!

Is there any justification of the usage of "in the way" ? Any other example of the usage from OG or other reliable source...

rightly said, 'hopefully' is an adverb. so is it the wrong modifier in A ? 'it is hoped' is an adjective clause ? so it can modify gravity waves ? is 'gravity waves' used as a noun in this sentence ?

can anybody elaborate more ?
