A. offer the most dramatic evidence yet discovered of the close evolutionary relationship between dinosaurs and birds B. offer evidence more dramatic than what has yet been discovered of the close evolutionary relationship between dinosaurs and birds C. offer more dramatic evidence of the close evolutionary relationship than any yet discovered between dinosaurs and birds D. have offered the most dramatic evidence of the close evolutionary relationship between dinosaurs and birds that have yet been discovered E. have offered more dramatic evidence than any that has yet been discovered of the close evolutionary relationship between dinosaurs and birds It is illogical to compare a group MEMBER to the ENTIRE GROUP. Incorrect: John is stronger than any of the boys in his class. Since John is one of the boys in his class, the sentence above implies that John is stronger than HIMSELF -- an illogical comparison. Correct: John is stronger than any of the OTHER boys in his class. B: evidence more dramatic that what has yet been discovered C: more dramatic evidence than any yet discovered E: more dramatic evidence than any that has yet been discovered Since the phrases in red refer to ALL evidence discovered thus far -- INCLUDING the dramatic evidence offered by fossils unearthed in China -- B, C and E illogically compare the evidence offered by the fossils to ITSELF. Eliminate B, C and E. In D, that have yet been discovered seems to be modifying birds (or perhaps dinosaurs and birds). Not the intended meaning. The intention here is to discuss EVIDENCE that has been discovered. The correct answer is A. _________________ Mitch Hunt Private Tutor for the GMAT and GRE GMATGuruNY@gmail.com If you find one of my posts helpful, please take a moment to click on the "UPVOTE" icon.

Here, since the evidence is compared to many other evidences, so we need to use the superlative instead of comparative: when comparison is between only two things. So B, C and E are out. Between A and D: the use of simple tenses is preferred in stated facts so D is out. Please comment. Senior | Next Rank: 100 Posts Joined 07 Sep 2013 Posted: 37 messages Upvotes: 2 Hi Mitch, Quick question. Similar to what other member has posted just before this post. Can I rule out B,C and E on just the basis of usage of "more" instead of most. Also, the example you quoted in your response, it would be right if it had most in place of more, right?
