In the Magoosh's GMAT Idiom App, I remember studying it as: "Contrast A with B"
Even though I was kinda skeptical, I still accepted it. Can I have some clarity please?

Hi,

When we say "contrast with" contrast is behaving as a verb.

For example, "He likes to contrast his checkered jacket with plain pants" or "his checkered jacket contrasts with his plain pants."

When we say "in contrast to" is behaving as a noun.
Example: "His jacket stands in contrast to his plain pants." As you can see in this sentence stands is the verb.

If you like it please give Kudos!

Hi all, isn't there a grammar rule on the GMAT that forbids using "will" and says to use "would" instead? So this sentence should be "In contrast to the first two options, a Cap and Trade system would decentralize decision making."? Please let me know, thank you!

Hey ,

"would" is used when there is a prediction regarding a past event

For example : He failed his exam , therefore he would not go to college



As the sentence here does not indicate past tense , we cannot use would
