Hard to distinguish between C and E

more -- than

as -- as

since nothing is explicitely compared here, I will go with E.

use of 'their' in all other choise is wrong.

I choose C because i do not like as apparant as though it a correct idiom.
i think the required idiom is no more than. therefore it should be C.

- their vs its -> later is correct as their does not has an antecedent
(A), (B), and (D) are out.

- in E, 'it' does not has an antecedent

(C) it is.

C. I choose C becos it "sounds" right. Does anyone have a grammatical explanation to choose b/w C and E?

First off, E is lengthy and awkward

(E) as apparent as it is in its --> 'it is' is redundant

Secondly, the original sentence meant for the influence to be more apparent in the government building. In (E), it uses as apparent as, which suggests equally apparent in governement building, the sentence would then make no sense.

It's between C and E. I'll go with C. E is too wordy. What is OA?

I will choose C

more...than is correctly used to convey that govt buildings have more influence than any other buildings/structures.

as...as is used to show equality

(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


A, B and D are obviously out because of the word 'their'
Though C and E are both grammatically correct as far as i can see...two things are in favour of C for me...
i've heard the usage of 'nowhere in....more than...' before just in general speech...and E is unnecessarily wordy ..i feel the words 'it is' are redundant..

...yeah, i think Vithal and Wilfred have the coincise reasons. As...As signifies equality and that is not what the sentence meant.

OA is (C).....thanks.

A – Not parallel. “than in” is missing. Incorrectly Comparing building with influence. Eliminate
B – wrong comparison. Building Vs influence. “as apparent as” is correct. Eliminate
C – Correct comparison – influence in Buildings in prakta Vs influence in Nowhere in prakta. Also Parallel. Keep
D – “so apparent than” – wrong usage. “as apparent as” is correct. Eliminate
E – First “It” – “influence of modern architechture”. Second its – Prakta. It can only refer one antecedent to avoid ambiguity. Eliminate.
