OA is C indeed ... I picked E earlier on ..
The reason why E is wrong must be the pronoun "it" ... "it" is not uniquely referring to a noun .. I missed it..

i dont know why this question is in "Brutal SC."

the idiom is more X than Y. we just have to make sure X and Y are parallel.

BDE are wrong in that the idiom is wrong.

A is wrong in that their government buildings are compared to the influence of Euro architecture. Their is not the correct pronoun. It should be it.

C is correct. influence of Euro Architecture.... in its....

Place “Prakta” is singular – so require singular possessive form – Eliminate A, B and D.

(A) more apparent than their
(B) so apparent as their
(C) more apparent than in its (hold it)
(D) so apparent than in their
(E) as apparent as it is in its ( as apparent as compares equality, but sentence require comparative / emphasis form – Eliminate it)

Answer: C

What does 'it' refers to in E ?
Not very clear.

C

E. as apparent as 'it' is in its

it is ambiguous and wordy.

'as apparent as its' would've been fine.

+1 for C
"their" is out --> incorrect pronoun
E contains it ....its --> not correct here

Choice between C and E, I choose C... E is wrong because "it" is ambiguous

Went with C. It sounded better and the correct idiom is more X than Y

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.
