The main difference between A and B is meaning .
Just as Vs As

Just as means "at the very moment" Thus A reads as

there was a precise moment at which Hans got closer and found it harder ... this doesnt make sense..

Hope it helps.


Got it Sudhir. Thanks for explaining. Cheers!

Nothing much to say. Only "B" conveys the intended meaning.

just like is unidiomatic hence E removed
just as changes the meaning hence A removed.

What is the issue with C and D is it as long as and as soon as usage or is it the usage of the in creased upward.

Please let me know

B)As he got closer to having all of his possessions packed, Hans found it harder to keep his apartment organized because of the increasing number of moving boxes stacked everywhere

Hans did not realize that the boxes were getting stacked everywhere but while he was packing did he realize about the problem with boxes.

Hence B is correct

And shouldnt it be like "Just as.....So.... " and in the option A ..."so" is missing so that also makes A wrong ??

Please try answering
