just some info: those of you who want to home your skills at "like for like" comparisons, eg. sentecnces with like..unlike, there is a whole series right at the end of the 1000 SC list (895-920).

"To dream anything that you want to dream, that is the beauty of the human mind. To do anything that you want to do, that is the strength of the human will. To trust yourself, to test your limits, that is the courage to succeed."
The answer is D. The sentence is talking about the differences between maintaining dirt roads and paved roads. A says that dirt roads cost twice as much maintaing paved roads. B is awkwardly written, and unclear ("as much as to maintain as" is just plain wrong). C is unclear. D is the only that works.
Does anyone have the OA, because I think I'm the only one here who says D.
