The expression ", when compared to", is wrong. Almost all except D use that. Hence D is the correct answer.

ummm, i'm surprised no one has mentioned this one:

"the process, in face of increasing urbanization and population density, must be accelerated so that the country would meet the diversified food demands rather than slowed down"

isn't the correct form, "must be accelerated so that the country will" or "can"

would should only be used when the sentence speaks in the hypothetical, no? "were the process accelerated, then the country would"... here, the "process must be accelerated so the country would meet the demands..."

pretty sure that would be a 100% wrong answer on the GMAT. any insights on this please???

Hi,

The last sentence "must be accelerated so that the country would meet the diversified food demands rather than slowed down"

How is this correct? It sounds so awkward. Shouldn't it be "will meet" and "rather be/become"?

my thoughts exactly... this was either a type-o or a flat-out mistake by the author because this would not be a correct answer choice on the gmat. it is so egregiously wrong that even if you did come across it on the test, you wouldn't need to worry because its certain that it would be omitted from your score once the question came up for formal review (and was promptly discarded)

very poor quality question Completely riddled with typos. The credited answer uses 'fast' in place of the more-correct form 'quickly'.

How is the second part of answer choice D correct? " the process ... must be accelerated so that the country would meet the diversified food demands rather than slowed down. "Would" doesn't make sense if you are saying the process "must be accelerated so that..."

I think this is a poor-quality question and I don't agree with the explanation.

It boils down to option B or option D because of the verb issue with other 3 options. Option B is wrong because of redundancy- " increasing cereal production and cultivated land to increase by 125% and 70% respectively that"

For Option D - Shouldn't the word 'fast' be replaced with faster ? "Compared to X, Y bore results fast "does not make much sense .

No Rishabh, the sentence is alright:

Y bore results faster than X did ... Correct
Compared to X, Y bore results fast... Correct
Compared to X, Y bore results faster.. Wrong

This is not clear to me. I have always believed that in any form of comparison between two things, we must use the comparative (er) form. Could you please provide more examples, and most importantly, references to grammar books or GMAT references that explains this? I tried but I am unable to find suitable examples/references.

Thanks.

I have the same question! Any experts out there who can help?

I think this is a poor-quality question and I don't agree with the explanation. All answer choices have errors, including D:

- In last 30 years...
- the process, (...) must be accelerated so that the country would meet the diversified food demands rather than slowed down --> must in present tense and would/slowed in past tense...
