E is the correct answer. to be honest I picked c first but realized that even though c uses correct idiom justas x so y, X and Y are not parallel - Edvard g and disregard (grammatically parallel but logically unparallel)

in E: x = refusal y = disregard. idiom like x,y

Having said that, c is a tempting choice.

good question

Thanks!

should be (E)

'Like the Scandinavians’ long refusal' is parallel with 'the Italians' disegard'

Comparision is between refusal of Scandinavians and Italians. Hence eliminate ABC

For comparision Like is preferred to "Just as", eliminate D

IMO E

here we are comparing two nouns Scandinavians’ long refusal with Italians’ disregard. We use "Like" to compare nouns and "Just as" to compare verbs. So Like is correct choice.
Due to ||ism, its clearly E..

good question..

E is the winner
Like compares the nouns & as compares the actions , moreover E is parallel to the remaining part of the sentence hence E is the right choice
