Almost convinced Thanks Shardhha..!

But...still a little doubt left-don't you think that here we are comparing the functions (of teeth and that of sharp and jagged edges of the horny jaws) ?

P.S: Is it because of the fact that as the presence of teeth is virtual in this case so we're not doing the comparison of functions actually...?

Hi Debayan,

Let's take a very basic example here:

I work as a GMAT expert with e-gmat.

Here, I am not compared to a GMAT expert. I am a GMAT expert. I function in the capacity of a GMAT expert.

In the very same way, the official sentence does not compare the "sharp abd jagged edges" with "teeth". It says that these "sharp and jagged edges" functions as "teeth". These edges themselves are the teeth in turtle. There is no question of any comparison here.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.

Shraddha-Thanks a lot for the detail clarification and patience of course Kudos...

It's clear now however,can we think like that "Is it because of the fact that as the presence of teeth is virtual in this case so we're not doing the comparison of functions actually...?

Just curious to know whether I'm thinking in a proper way you know !

I was going to explain why E is correct. But after going through Shraddha's response, i think its pretty understood!
