    A.have to know a great deal more than now about the social and economic
    B.have to know a great deal more than they do now about the social and economical
    C.would have to know a great deal more than they do now about the social and economical
    D.would have to know a great deal more than they do now about the social and economic
    E.would have to know a great deal more than now about the social and economical

    "Economical" (meaning frugal) is wrong in this sentence so B,C and E are out. The correct tense is "would have to know" so A is out too. That leaves D as the correct answer.

    Isis - Even i was expecting it to be D, but the OA turned out to be E.
    Thanks for the confirmation. "Economical" doesn't make any sense in this context.

    do you mean the correct answer is A? or D? (you have to "D")
    What is the source of this document? what question number?

    sorry for the goof-up. OA is E.

    I got it from one of the yahoo group named "GMATNetwork".
    It contains some Maths Sets and Verbal sets.

    Well, I am pretty sure is plain wrong. It has to be "economic"
