"The study showed that carbon dioxide emissions increased much less in the last year than analysts {had expected them to and general pollution levels will flatten} out this year."

and that General Pollution levels would flatten.
Does it seems to be correct.

But if we write as "and General Pollution would flatten" it seems logical.

I agree with the first correction in B excluding words "them to" but how do you prove this is efficient in GMAT .

But I don't agree with the second part use of that.

@kinji.at.pg1 @Siddharth.Goyal can you guys please help . @VeritasGurgaon Please do let me know in case my underatdning is wrong

Comparing the two openings in the choices, 'had expected' is correct. The emissions increased in the last year (in the past), while analysts made their prediction before that time in the past. Therefore, we need the past perfect tense: 'had expected.' Choice (A) or (B) must be correct.The first difference between (A) and (B) is the missing 'them to' in (B). The sentence is still clear without those two words, so not only is (B) possibly correct, it is more likely to be correct than (A), as the GMAT prefers efficiency. The second difference is the word 'that' in (B), while 'that' is not in (A). There's a 'that' earlier in the sentence: "The study showed that" [one thing] "and that" [another thing]. This is a shorter version of saying, "The study showed that. . . and the study showed that. . . " Since the two things are somewhat unrelated, it is proper to include the 'that' before the second thing the study showed.

I havent used what you have mentioned above, but can suggest something. Since you are confused with the classes , and if you want to go for the online course try Ivy-Gmat - Sandeep Gupta. If you stay in Blore then you can attend his classes there. I think they have classes in Delhi as well. If you arent at any of these two locations then you can get his class videos by enrolling for the online course. Else you can try Rajat Sadana - e-Gmat. Both these classes are good. ATB!!!!
