Thanks Apache ! I agree with you on the 1st .. however on the 2nd, it does indicate an ongoing action right ?

Preset Perfect - indicates an action started in the past and continuing in the present.

Auto industry was brought out of bankruptcy (past) and is still out of bankruptcy(present)

Any inputs .. ?

Apache ..I am still unconvinced.

price increase was the past action - correctly preceded by 'was'

However, the main subject here is about the auto industry and bringing it out of bankruptcy.

something in the tune of - what has brought the change in you ?

something like . . what 'has' brought about the change in him was the improved quality of food.

similarly .. what 'has' brought the auto industry out of bankruptcy was the price increase ..

what is it am I missing here ?

Based on the sentence, it seems that the "governmentally sanctioned price increase" brought auto makers out of bankruptcy once, years ago ... hence simple tense (brought)
Quote:
Auto industry was brought out of bankruptcy (past) and is still out of bankruptcy(present)

We don't know that it is still out of bankruptcy. we only know that it was brought out of bankruptcy.
Quote:
(A) Water and resource management problems
Water as such is not the problem, management of water is..

From what I understand, the OA is C. However, how do we know that water, itself, is not the prob? I need to get a better understanding of GMAT reasoning before G day.

(A) What was as remarkable as the development of the compact disc
tense shift
(B) The thing that was as remarkable as developing the compact disc
"The thing" is awkward
(C) No less remarkable than the development of the compact disc
(D) Developing the compact disc has been none the less remarkable than
awkward/wordy
(E) Development of the compact disc has been no less remarkable as

B/w C and E, I'll go for C. "as has been" sounds idiomatically wrong .... plus "compact disc" is closer to "the new technology". I don't know whether the latter reason is sound.

From what I understand, the following is the expl. from the OG re: has brought ... was:
Quote:
Similarly, has brought indicates action that continues up to the present; the past tense brought is needed to parallel was.
