    I'm still a bit confused,I've had much time distinguishing"in that" and "because",but it seems that I am not successful....May be I should be sparing with using them?
    Trouble is a part of your life,and if you do not share it,you do not give the person who loves you enough chances to love you enough.

    This is from GMATPrep

    The yield per acre of coffee berries varies enormously in that a single tree, depending on both its size and on climate and altitude, could produce enough berries to make between one and twelve pounds of dried beans a year.

    A enormously in that a single tree, depending on both its size and on climate and altitude, could produce
    B enormously in that a single tree, dependent on its size and also on climate and altitude, is able to produce
    C enormously, because a single tree, depending on its size and on climate and altitude, is able to produce
    D enormously, because a single tree, being dependent on its size, climate, and altitude, is capable of producing
    E enormously, because a single tree, dependent on its size as well as on climate and altitude, could produce

    OA C

    -----------------------------------


    Back to the topic of "in that" versus "because". Why is "because" better than "in that"?



    between answer choice C and the sentence below (not a choice above), which would be better?

    "enormously in that a single tree, depending on its size and on climate and altitude, is able to produce"

    Thank you everyone.

    This thread was extremely helpful in that now I understand why ETS differentiates between "because" and "in that".

    Hey Erin.Thanx for wonderful explanation.one thing i would lie to clarify.
    in example for such as vs like
    does that mean like is used for pure comparison (in ur example it excludes lemons and limes) and such as is used for example(that includes limes and lemons+other citrus fruits)
