This can get complex, if you so desire. However, just limit it to two aspects.
1. ‘Their’ has no clear antecedent. We cannot say, whether 'their' is the possessive pronoun of producers or small cars. So drop A, B, and D.
2. When in comparisons between two things, use of 'other' is a customary adjective for excluding the one compared from the rest of others. Note that choice E does not use the term ‘other’. So C is the choice.

Alternately, we can also see whether the comparison is 1)between cars of more fuel efficiency and of the current efficiency or 2) between more number of and the same number of small cars. Whichever way you take, you will finally land in C

What do you mean others concept. Can you please give some examples and explain?

This post was
BOOKMARKED
Today's technology allows manufacturers to make small cars more fuel-efficient now than at anytime in their production history.

(A) small cars more fuel-efficient now than at any time in their (Today's technology is being compared with at any time in production history) WRONG

(B) small cars that are more fuel-efficient than they were at any time in their ( They is not fine its antecedent is small cars as per parallelism but same cars can not exist in different time frames)

(C) small cars that are more fuel-efficient than those at any other time in ( This is fine )

(D) more fuel-efficient small cars than those at any other time in their ( Today's technology allows manufacturers to make those at any time in their production history: today's technology can not allow manufacturers to produced those of past)

(E) more fuel-efficient small cars now than at any time in ( more fuel-efficient cars = quantity (number of cars) or quality(efficient) -- ambiguous meaning )

In B and C that relative clause is confining comparison between cars without any ambiguity.

B is wrong bcz of They which refers to same cars of today's era.

referent those in C resolves that issue.

(E) Today's technology allows manufacturers to make more fuel-efficient small cars now than at any time in.

E is wrong because verb of first part of comparison is in present tense and second half verb is missing (in comparison we omit verbs only when both actions occurred in same tense), further subject Today's technology can not be considered subject of second part of comparison... Today's technology is applicable to today's manufacturing process; E is presenting a kind of anachronism.

Today's technology allows manufacturers to make more fuel-efficient small cars now
than
Today's technology allows manufacturers to make more fuel-efficient small cars at any time in production history.

weather allowed farmers to grow more fresh vegetable in 1990 than at(in) anytime in farming history. (this sentence (imo) correct)

weather allowed farmers to grow more fresh vegetable in 1990
than
weather allowed farmers to grow more fresh vegetable at anytime in farming history

weather is more favorable this year to grow fresh vegetables than it was last year. (tense repeated)

I hope above explanation makes some sense ?

I beg to differ...The subject is today's technology..So had it been a allowed instead of an allows..The result would be the same..
The sentence doesn't make any sense..So That is wrong too..

When I read the sentence...what I comprehend is that more modifies fuel efficient small cars and not just fuel efficient...As it does in B & C..And hence is incorrect..

I have a doubt in B..
Today's technology allows manufacturers to make Maserati cars that are more fuel-efficient than they (Maserati cars) were at any time in their (Maserati Cars) production history.
Small cars need not be the same..it is a term depicting a class/type of cars which will remain the same through out the history of time..

Where as in C
Today's technology allows manufacturers to make Maserati cars that are more fuel-efficient than those (Maserati cars) were at any time in production history

Here both are depicting cars of new and past era specifically...this is correct too

Actually I tried to explain secondary and primary reason behind why E is wrong.
Primary reason is the same as your's that subject is not appropriate. Secondary is verb.

I agree with your observation: "When I read the sentence...what I comprehend is that more modifies fuel efficient small cars and not just fuel efficient."
Yes a similar comparison error is mentioned in MGMAT SC Chapter 13: page 261: Other comparison construction.

I have seen few official-comparison-problems in which GMAC tried to test pronoun reference (it vs that vs another noun) + verb repetition.

Following is one of the correct answer.
According to public health officials, in 1998 Massachusetts became the first state in which more babies were born to women over the age of thirty than under it.

2nd half of the comparison is so short. just "under it"

Both the events belong to the past that is why omission of verb in second half is acceptable, but in E event of present is compared with event of past and verb is skipped in seconds half of the comparison.. that is the reason I highlighted that particular error as well.

more babies were born to women over the age of thirty.
than
(subject) babies were born (verb) to women under (the age of thirty)it.

Though E is wrong because subject doesn't make sense for second half of the comparison also comparison is ambiguous in meaning, we should also keep other parameters in mind while accessing a answer choice. such analysis can keep our brain on alert and help detect secondary level issues (may be primary in some other sentence).

If we remove the "their" at the end of B, is it better than C ?

Let me try this
(A) small cars more fuel-efficient now than at any time in "their" - their might refer to manufacturers or cars. Thus Ambiguous. Incorrect
(B) small cars that are more fuel-efficient than "they" were at any time in "their" - They were at time in their is Awkward and ambiguous. Incorrect
(C) small cars that are more fuel-efficient than those at any other time in -- Makes perfect sense.Correct
(D) more fuel-efficient small cars than those at any other time in their--- We do not want to make "more fuel efficient small cars". What is want to do is "to make small cars more fuel efficient". Thus, this option Changes the original meaning of the sentence. Incorrect
(E) more fuel-efficient small cars now than at any time in - Same error as in "D" Incorrect

WHy is E not the answer..... COnfused.... :(

because e distorts the meaning...

Small cars that are fuel efficient are different from fuel efficient small cars...

It's same like soldiers from boston and boston soldiers...
formers specifies the soldiers specifically from boston, however the later specifies boston soldiers(a type of soldiers), who can be from any country or state..

Hope it helps

Hi, I was wondering which one of the following two is better? Are they all grammatically correct at least?

(1) Today's technology allows manufacturers to make small cars that are more fuel-efficient than those at any other time in production history. [same as answer choice (C)]

(2) Today's technology allows manufacturers to make small cars that are more fuel-efficient than they were at any other time in production history. ["than they were" instead of "than those"]

Also, is there any difference between "any other time in production history" and "any time in production history"? Seems the correct answer has "other" for a reason, can someone explain?

Thanks a lot!

why there is ambiguity in the use of 'their'. their can't be used for cars right. 'their' must refer to manufacturers.

A nice question

We need to figure who is the subject of the clause.
John allowed his son to make a new drawing.

John is the subject of the clause , not this son , not the drawing

Similarly the subject of the clause in this example is Technology which is further modified by adjective of time (Today's)
In some other context, this sentence can easily read as
Today’s technology allows manufacturing of small cars more profitable. .. anyway I digressed from the topic..

Today’s technology allows manufacturers to make small cars more fuel-efficient now than at any time in their production history.
A. small cars more fuel-efficient now than at any time in their (their-- whose ? Technology's ... but technology is singular, Use of their wrong)
B. small cars that are more fuel-efficient than they were at any time in their (their-- whose ? Technology's.. but technology is singular, Use of their wrong))
C. small cars that are more fuel-efficient than those at any other time in
D. more fuel-efficient small cars than those at any other time in their (their-- whose ? Technology's.. but technology is singular, Use of their wrong))
E. more fuel-efficient small cars now than at any time in

A,B,D out

C and E REMAINING

E) more fuel-efficient small cars now than at any time in
Now is redundant in option E, since the clause already has "Todays's technology" at the stat
E also has a meaning ambiguity,
more, fuel-efficient small cars = Fuel efficiency is more ?
or
more fuel-efficient, small cars= number of cars is more ?

C removes this meaning ambiguity => Answer C

Today's technology allows manufacturers to make small cars more fuel-efficient now than at any time in their production history.

(A) small cars more fuel-efficient now than at any time in their

(B) small cars that are more fuel-efficient than they were at any time in their

(C) small cars that are more fuel-efficient than those at any other time in

(D) more fuel-efficient small cars than those at any other time in their

(E) more fuel-efficient small cars now than at any time in
[Reveal] Spoiler:
Key takeway:
- Nouns are MORE Adj THAN Nouns
- the now is suppose to confuse us
- Notice that "More + Adj" dictates the the noun/s being compared - and not the "than".

1. (Cars) MORE [fuel-efficient] THAN (at any time)
- Comparison does not makes sense.

2. (Cars) MORE [fuel-efficient] THAN (they were)
- Comparison does not makes sense.

3. (Cars) MORE [fuel-efficient] THAN (those - can refer only to cars)
- correct

4. MORE (cars) THAN (those - can refer only to cars)
- does not makes sense

5. MORE (cars) THAN (time)
- does not makes sense

1) small cars more fuel-efficient now than at any time in their
"Now" is incorrect because "any time" includes now. So it the comparative form falls apart (something cannot be "more" than itself." Moreover, "their" is ambiguous (in the history of the cars or the manufacturers?).

2) small cars that are more fuel-efficient than they were at any time in their
Here the issue is related to meaning. It's implying that these cars are more efficient than they themselves were previously. Those same cars haven't been improved. Instead, the cars today represent a break from the past or a new fleet of automobiles.

3) small cars that are more fuel-efficient than those at any other time in
Correct answer. The "those" pronoun properly refers to a class of small cars, not the same exact small cars at a later date.

4) more fuel-efficient small cars than those at any other time in their
Change of meaning here--this sentence implies that more fuel-efficient cars have been made or, possibly, the cars are more fuel efficient. "Their" is still ambiguous.

5) more fuel-efficient small cars now than at any time in

Change of meaning here--this sentence implies that more fuel-efficient cars have been made or, possibly, the cars are more fuel efficient.

Many people say that A is wrong because of erroneous comparison (cars are being compared to time). But I beg to disagree. A is wrong for other reasons, but erroneous comparison is not one of them. I think in A, "now" (time) is being compared to "in any time in production history" (time).

Consider: The job market is more competitive now than any time in the past decade. --> in this sentence, would you say there is erroneous comparison between job market and time? No! Right?

Today's technology allows manufacturers to make small cars more fuel-efficient now than at any time in their production history.

(A) small cars more fuel-efficient now than at any time in their

(B) small cars that are more fuel-efficient than they were at any time in their

(C) small cars that are more fuel-efficient than those at any other time in

(D) more fuel-efficient small cars than those at any other time in their

(E) more fuel-efficient small cars now than at any time in

Without burning much midnight oil, simply reject A, B, and D, for the awful ambiguity of the pronoun 'their' and limit oneself to just considering C and E.
The focus of new technology is not more numbers but better performance. It is no great USP to say that I make one million cars using my new technology and get 15 kilometers to a liter Vs that I may make only 100,000 cars but still can give 20 kilometers to a liter.
This is the one reason C scores over E.

Utilizing their in this context refers to the same cars as mentioned which is illogical as we are talking about cars in the past. Hence, those, which refer to their cars of the same type

Comparison between small cars more fuel-efficient than those before.

D & E subtly change the meaning, so they are out plus E has a comparison issue as well, comparing the car with a time period.
B is wordy.
A has a similar issue to E wherein it compares the car with a time period.
C correct compares with small cars now Vs. small cars in any other time period.

C IMO is the right answer.
