B is the only one that properly compares Europe to US.
It is a perfectly completed clause.

In Choice B 'from which' refers to what?

i feel (not think) A is okay. I say so because SC is big problem for me.

If it sounds good to my ear then it is right.

Guys/Gals let me know why B is right choice.

I am still learning.

I agree with C. Mahesh, why did you change from C to B ? what is the reasoning behind that ?

While I see nothing wrong with B (apart from a possibly missing comma after 'but in the american west') I feel that C is more concise and does an appropriate comparison

Just realised, I made a mistake.I actually meant B, though reason remains the same.
(B) In feudal Europe, urban areas developed from clusters of houses where peasants lived and from which they commuted to farmlands in the countryside, but in the American West homesteading policies -

Here it says In Europe..... but in American West ....
Correct bcoz it compares Europe and American West.

(C) Unlike feudal Europe where urban areas developed from clusters of houses where peasants lived and commuted to farmlands in the countryside, the American West's homesteading policies

here it says Unlike Europe...., American West's policies.
Incorrect bcoz it compares Europe and Policies.

Brajesh, as for your question, I dont think there is any difference as such. Both mean the same. In a situation, when both these are present, I too would like to know which one would be a better choice.
Any takers??

I think they convey the same meaning. This question is testing parallelism....
Hence B

Here the question asks for ||lism:

(B) In feudal Europe, urban areas developed from clusters of houses where peasants lived and from which they commuted to farmlands in the countryside, but in the American West homesteading policies required residency on the land itself in order to obtain eventual ownership.

Coming to your question, we generally use the apostrophe 's with animate beings like people, animals (but mostly people) :

>>Mary's books
>>The cat's tail

If we are talking about inanimate beings, we prefer the usage of "of" :

>>The success of her new album
>>Branches of management

B.

Strangly enough i was debating between B and E, as both seem to be parallel, however E is not a complete claus.
