i think B) is the best option as it uses the correct idoim ........ as x as y
while comparing political institutions with nowhere , more than does not go properly.

A for proper comparision.

B -- it is in its... (not parallel with " in Colombia)
and also it refers to what? Colombia.. then substitue it and check
Colombia is in Colombia's Political instituations.--> does it make sense..

OA : A

Part of the problem here is the Pronoun. We have a choice between their and its. Since the singular noun is Colombia, we can then eliminate C and D for the incorrect pronoun their. B has as...as, which is an inappropriate equal comparison. E gives us as...than, which is also incorrect. More ...than is the proper form of the comparison, which is only found in the correct answer, A.

Suresh, both A and B use "its" in the same way. in B i think it's clear that "it" refers to influence, not Columbia. Probably "it is" is redundant in B. Also, as bhatiya pointed out, "more than" is the better form of comparison than "as .. as".
