D.

"any city" includes San Antonio and therefore comparison cannot be made.
"any other city" is correct.

I guess E might be the answers,In my grammar book, it say...
Structure is " S +V +(more)adj/adv+ than + any other+ Singular C.N."
or U can use" S +V +(more)adj/adv+ than + other+ Plural C.N."

For example
She is taller than any other girl in class.
She is taller than other girls in class.

(A) any city does
(B) does any other city
(C) other cities do
(D) any city
(E) other cities


What a terrible sentence :? "more good :?: " shouldn`t it be "better?"
Anyhow, (B) seems to it. E incorrectly compares SA to other Merican cities.

THe OA is B

Here is my reasoning

D/E are wrong because they need a verb for parallelism.


A- "Any city in the United States" is self contradictory. San Antonio is in the United States.

C- breaks the parallelism. San antonio-Singular, Other cites-pluarl

Sorry,I have a little confusing in this topic. Could someone explain me more about this structure. Why many sentence as below use" than+other+plural noun"
(press Ctrl+F---to search this word in article)
1.In this regard, Czech and the Slavic languages are closer to their Indo-European origins than other languages in the same family that have lost much inflection
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Czech_language

2 wanting very much to win or be more successful than other people:
http://dictionary.cambridge.org/define.asp?dict=CALD&key=15602

3.The present tense refers to events in progress or current conditions. The present tense is more complex than other tenses because it has many uses beyond indicating a current action
http://www.tameri.com/edit/verbs.html

or u might search stucture" than+other+plural noun" in google search, u may surprise that many credible article also use this structure.
So, I really want to know which one is the correct sentence.
thanks in advance
