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.

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.
