C

E. as apparent as 'it' is in its

Pronoun 'it' is ambiguous and wordy.

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

There is another post with more replies.

I believe OA is C.

D is definitely wrong as 'their' refers to singular noun Prakta.

+1 for C
E contains ---as many as --- used when expressing equal and in this case it is not correct

when you use a pronoun for something, then the same pronoun can't be used to refer to something else in the same sentence. in E 'it' refers to 'influence' but then 'its' apparently refers to 'Prakta'. so E is out.

(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

Can anyone explain why the answer is D and not C.?


C. For 2 reasons:

1. "No more than" is a correct idiom.
2. Singular pronoun is required for singular noun...

Nowhere in Prakta (singular sub)is the influence of modern European architecture more apparent than their government buildings.
(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

their eliminated cos of singular subject
so left with C n E
E is a akward from 'as it is in its'

So C is the ans

I wasn't sure between C or E...I think C makes more sense. Thanks for the explanations guys.

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.
