It would help the discussion if you guys provide some explaination, even it is wrong.

The post like "I choose (A)", "I like (B)", "I think (C)"... does not boost our knowledge in general.

Thanks.

(B) had the Pacific Coast Highway taken a worse battering than it did in the winter and spring of 1983, or
had taken ... than did
not parallel

(C) has the Pacific Coast Highway taken a worse battering than it had in the winter and spring of 1983, or
has taken than had

(D) did the Pacific Coast Highway take a worse battering than it had in the winter and spring of 1983, or
did than had

(E) did the Pacific Coast Highway take a worse battering than it has in the winter and spring of 1983, nor
did than has

These four all are not parallel. Only (A) is parallel.

Please tell me about the use of "no ... nor"? I thought the only correct form is "neither ... nor".

I would choose A

In B, "had taken" and "did" are not parallel.

Yes, OA is (A)

So I guess the use of "not...nor" is OK?
