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 :roll: "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".

E is correct answer.


vacations are plural, so E can not be correct.

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!
