I don't know, I see a problem beyond the ones related above.

Quote:
as much energy is generated

Quote:
as it was ????? in 1990

"it" relates clearly to energy, BUT...

Quote:
as it was ????? in 1990

SO, replacing "it" by [the energy generated]..

Quote:
as [the energy generated] was in 1990

the point is that energy can't "be" anything, so we can eliminate B and D

now...

as was the energy generated in 1990

I guess a normal structure should be the case is now (more than) 10 times as much energy is generated through wind power as the case was in 1990.

Just to summarize the understanding, "it" should refer to the "complete" subject along with the modifier.

Can I use "that"? Can you please clarify the difference.

Hi kinjiGC,

Any pronoun used to refer to a noun will include the associated modifier with it. It just cannot pick up the "noun" and leave alone the modifier. This is applicable for the use of "that" as well.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.

Hi egmat,

Statement which I am referring to -- "Any pronoun used to refer to a noun will include the associated modifier with it. It just cannot pick up the "noun" and leave alone the modifier."
I just wanted to confirm whether the following statement is applicable for all the sentences or the sentences in which there is a comparison.

On the similar pattern of the above question, I just wanted to confirm what does 'it' refer to in the following sentence,

In the 1980's the rate of increase of the minority population of the United States was nearly twice what it was in the 1970's.

Here, it refers to the rate of increase of the minority population of the United States or only to the minority population of the United States. Why?

Can you please clear this query.

Thanks.

Is there a difference between "is now generated" and "is generated ... now"?
