IMO E
Nowhere in Prakta is the influence of modern European architecture more apparent than their government buildings.

A. more apparent than their - their is not the correct use
B. so apparent as their - same as (a)
C. more apparent than in its - doubts on this (now that I am answering :roll: )
D. so apparent than in their - awkward
E. as apparent as it is in its - correct

A. more apparent than their
B. so apparent as their
C. more apparent than in its
D. so apparent than in their
E. as apparent as it is in its

C it is.
A is incorrect because of illogical comparison.
B and D are out because of the use of pronoun "their" when we should be using the singular pronoun "its" because Prakta is a place which makes it a singular noun.
E is incorrect as it is wordy and awkward. Moreover, there is subtle but a clear difference in meaning that what the author intends to say. as apparent as is not the same as more apparent than.
A uses correct comparison and preserves the core meaning of the sentence.

Picked C. I wanted "its" in the answer which left me with C or E. E just read awkward for me.
