A,
Trade uniors are not comparable to organized labor movements, but Struggle for Social Legitimacy is. Hence, we don't need "did" as in B. also opposition should be against something..!!
A is the best option.

okdongdong, Please do not mention your choices when you post the OA... Let us all figure it out all by ourselves.

B it is

Against and Opoosition is redundant...
E verb problem... and moreover WHEN clause without time...
Left with B and D

We need MORE ... THAN, can not use MORE .... AS
So B it is.

B it is and here is why.

A and C are out because opposition against is redundant.

D is out because the correct idiom should be more than, not more as because we are comparing degree of opposition between trade unions in the US and other nations.

E is out because the past tense, encountered, should be followed by another past tense, did not has.

B uses the right idiom, more x….than y and the right tense, encountered…did

Okdongdong, the answer is B.

As you have narrowed the choices to A or B, let me proceed to explain why A is wrong. In choice A, the absence of did, results in the comparison of the intense opposition of the trade unions to organized labor movements. This illogical comparison can be corrected by adding did, as in the case of choice B.

Therefore B

Great! Darth_McDaddy's explanation is quite convincing. Meanwhile the official answer is B. Thanks!
