Jinesh,
'B' is tempting but "orginally" pushes back this part to past tense,
so "originally seemed" is correct.

For example:
It appears costly than it originally seemed. -> It means "now" it appears costly to me, than it appeared "yesterday".

It appears costly than it originally seem to. -> It means "now" it appears costly to me, than it appears "yesterday"

what is the OA and OE?

I have seen 2 explanations for this question. One that justifies "A" as the OA and the other that justifies E as the OA.

I feel in "A" we are comparing the "cost of vacations" - is considerably more than - vacations . However, there is a thread that states "A" as the OA

In E it appears to me - "it" refers to the cost and "they" refers to the vacations, making the comparison to be between the actual cost and seeming cost

I go with A.

Jinesh,

Why B is wrong: I think first vacation "seemed" costly and then travelers realized the cost. So we need past participle for "seem".

vacations are plural, so E can not be correct.

(A) they originally seemed
(B) they originally seem to
(C) they seemingly would cost originally
(D) it seemed originally
(E) it originally seemed they would

Charter vacations is plural.
Therefore DE are wrong.

B is wrong because an adverb such as originally implies the past tense. Seem to should be seemed to.

C has two adverbs and less concise than A.
Therefore I chose A.

This elimination strategy deserves kudos and is worthy of emulation. Good job!
