Hi everyone!!! good evening.
Can you help me to build the logical path for this question?

OA
[Reveal] Spoiler:
B

486. Like the 1890s Populists who exalted the rural myth, so urban leaders of the 1990s are trying to glorify the urban myth.
(A) Like the 1890s Populists who exalted the rural myth,
(B) Just as the Populists of the 1890s exalted the rural myth,
(C) The Populists of the 1890s having exalted the rural myth,
(D) Just like the rural myth was exalted by the Populists of the 1890s
(E) Populists of the 1890s were exalting the rural myth, and

I know that here we have idiom - Just AS , SO
I chose E, thinking that ||sm is a matter here. (were exalting... are trying ), is AND is the weak side of E?
A is out because of Like, as. C lacks predicate, D has wrong comparison using LIKE.
B or E?
Thanx

Hey Ayrish

IMO if you choose E, the original meaning is lost. The sentence is trying to make a comparison. B"just as... so" maintains that tone and meaning.
E will make it sound like "urban leaders are trying... because populists were exalting..."

You cannot solve this with parallelism as the first half of the statement is in the past and the second half of the statement is later in time...

Hence Just as.. so is the best bet .... plus it also is parallel in the form of 'populists of the 1890' with 'urban leaders of the 1990s'

Therefore B...

To compare actions we must use "as". So B is correct.
