Isn't A slightly awkward? I went ahead with A only for parallelism. nothing else.
However, on second thought, D looks better.
Any concrete explanation why we need 'much' and 'however rather than even though'?
I think , much is not required. I may have missed something..

This is a test of altered intent and //ism. The text states that however much the United States voters may agree with an element of indefiniteness about the agreement. But choices B, C and E seem to miss out the speculation and hence fault on the intent of the original. B, C and D also miss the introductory //ism of the word ‘that’’. A survives the above said pitfalls and remains the best fit.

honey, nothing wrong with much becuase " much" in A goes with the verb " agree", not the noun it used to be the sentence's subject....
A is good

Hi ,

i did not find any appropriate option for this question.
I agree that there is a parallelism issue with "that".
IMO "However" in A does no make any logical sense.
Moreover, is "much" in A correct?

strange question: isn't there missing "that" in C? C with "that" would be the best choice.

It is easy to tackle this question if we focus on idiom usage and if we stick with original sentence meaning.

If we focus solely on idiom usage then we can easily eliminate choices B,C and D.
We are left with A & E
Choice E alters the meaning of the sentence. Original sentence clearly states that the voters may agree, but choice E reflects as if voters are in agreement. Hence E is incorrect.

In Choice A - Much is associated with measurement of agreement.
