Critics of research!

Fri Jul 16, 2010 11:44 am
Critics of the research study claimed that monkeys are different enough from human beings that comparing the two species can be as questionable--or as useless--as comparisons between humans and mice.

(A) different enough from human beings that comparing the two species can
(B) different enough from human beings so that comparing the two species can
(C) different enough from human beings for comparing the two species to
(D) so different from human beings that comparisons between the two species can
(E) so different from human beings for comparisons between the two species to

gmat_perfect, you post great questions. If you really need help with the questions you post and someone's response helps you, don't be too shy to hit Thank You.

The author seeks to explain that comparing monkeys and humans is as useless as comparing humans and mice. Note that the end of the sentence (the 2nd part of the comparison) states "as questionable as comparisons between humans and mice". Thus the first part must discuss "comparisons" between monkeys and humans in order to maintain parallel structure. Elminate A through C for using "comparing" instead of "comparisons"

E fails to properly use the idiom "so x that y". Instead, E states "monkeys are so different...for comparisons to be questionable". D correctly states "monkeys are so different...that comparisons can be questionable".

"human being are different from monkeys that makes the comparison questionable" this meaning is clearly conveyed by option D
