"Best" should be used here because the sentence compares him to all the people (more than two). So, C and D are out.

A is redundant because you already mentioned the people before the modifying phrase.

E is wordy.

B is right. "Of the people...the best known is Martin Luther."

That's what I thought too, but don't we have some sort of noun modification thing going on?

Of the people who brought about the Reformation...Martin Luther is the best known of them.

Of the people who brought about the Reformation...the best known is Martin Luther.

Can "the best known" follow "of the people"?

Hi All,

But, I still am not able to reason out why. Is there any rule? Can some one give a detailed anwer why A is wrong?

Krishna,

Why A is wrong...heres my 2 cents....

Of the people who brought about the Reformation, the religious revolution that grew out of objections to the doctrines of the medieval church, Martin Luther is the best known of them .

The sentence begins with "of the people" - this means that the guy being mentioned later on is one among them. So when A says in the latter part of the phrase that Martin Luther....of them.. that of them is redundant!

Hope this helps!

yup you should have posted the OA little later.

it is a clear B. Because the statement is a fact, so it needs to be in present form and it is a superlative comparison. So C, D and E is out.

in A know is wrong it should be known.
So we are left with only B.
