Sentence Correction: Redundancy - "to such a large degree"

The earth's resources are being wasted so significantly by corporate industries that replenishing these resources will be a difficult, if not impossible, task.

This answer choice is stylistically flawed. Using the passive form (are being wasted) creates Redundancy. Since there is another grammatically correct answer choice that does not use the passive form, it is preferable to this one.

Although this answer choice eliminates the original Stylistic error by changing the sentence from passive to active, it is not the most concise answer choice.

This answer choice repeats the original Stylistic flaw. Using the passive form (are being wasted) creates Redundancy. Since there is another grammatically correct answer choice that does not use the passive form, it is preferable to this one.

Although this answer choice eliminates the original Stylistic error by changing the sentence from passive to active, it creates Redundancy by using the phrase to such a large degree. This phrase is one of the Specific Redundancies and should always be removed. Try to look for a more concise answer choice.

What helps us identify this as a Redundancy question as well as identify this mistake is the following Stop Sign:

to such a large degree / to a large enough degree

Nice work!
