Unlike X, Y where X and Y must be ||. Hence, option A, C and D are out.

Economically means cheaply. Hence, B is out.

Economic means something related to monetary.

A. its fellow Baltic nations, Latvia and Lithuania, the economy of Estonia grew at an astonishing rate in the late 1990s, and at the end of the decade it was placed -> Nation is compared to economy. Hence, out.

B. its fellow Baltic nations, Latvia and Lithuania, Estonia grew at an astonishing rate economically in the late 1990s, and at the end of the decade earned itself a place --> Rate grew cheaply?? lol.

C. its fellow Baltic nations, Latvia and Lithuania, Estonia’s economy grew at an astonishing rate in the late 1990s, and at the end of the decade they were placed --> Same as A.

D. Latvia and Lithuania, its fellow Baltic nations, the economy of Estonia grew at an astonishing rate in the late 1990s, and at the end of the decade it was placed -->Same as A.

E. its fellow Baltic nations, Latvia and Lithuania, Estonia experienced economic growth at an astonishing rate in the late 1990s, and at the end of the decade it earned a place

E has pronoun "it", but E is correct. Adverb "economically" in B is misplaced.

Dear chesstitans,

I'm happy to respond. :-)

First, my friend, I am going to chide you.
(1) When you post an SC question, always always always underline the relevant portion!!
(2) Especially when you don't underline, having "same as above" for (A) is monumentally unclear, since it's not clear how much was underlined!!

This SC question is not too challenging. It's basically a one-trick pony.

(A) illogical comparison (country to economy)
(B) illogical comparison (country to economy)
(C) illogical comparison (country to economy)
(D) illogical comparison (country to economy)
(E) logically sound comparison

The pronoun "it" in (E) is perfectly fine. It refers to the subject, "Estonia."

I'm not impressed with this question. Here's a high quality SC practice question:
California Republic

Does all this make sense?
Mike :-)

Are there different versions of this question? In chesstitan's original post, answer B uses the phrase "Estonia grew", but in mikemcgarry's quoted block, it uses the phrase "Estonia's economy".

Mike, could you also help me understand how the use of the pronoun "it" in answer E is acceptable? Logically "it" should refer to Estonia, but grammatically, can't it also refer to "economic growth"? Is it a rule that a pronoun always refers to the subject and not an object?
