Wow, this was tough for me! :roll:

I'll choose B for "are people". But, I'm not sure about the usage of "one another" and "each other"

A looks fine.


A cant be right as it compares degree of difference to people

B is fine but I'm assuming that the second in is a typo.

KC, could you please clarify?

Mmmm A or B. The "are" sounds off to me. Is it really necessary?

I will go with B....becoz the "are" is needed to make sure that the comparison is well directed. We are comparing the difference between people among the Inidan tribes and Difference between the people across various european cities. B clearly states that. A makes us think that we are directly comparing people while it is the "Difference" that is actually compared..

Please post OA and I apologize if I turn out wrong...

C & E useless.
D changes the meanings.
So left with A or B. 'Than are' in B leaves me with A.

So, A is my choice. OA, please?
