This post was
BOOKMARKED
There are two 3:2 splits in the sentence.
i) due to vs because of
ii)more vs most

When we are supposed to compare between two then use comparitive but when we are supposed to compare in a group consisting of more than two members, then use superlative
Examples of comparitive are: better, more, quicker etc
Examples of superlative are: best, most, quickest etc

Whenever if you see "due to vs because of ", replace "due to" with "caused by" and then check whether it fits the sentence.
Here "because of" is better than "due to".

+1 D.
Hope that helps.

Please never forget to mention the source. If the source is not mentioned in the check list, then please take some pain and write the name of the source below the question.
ex-Source: "*********"
It will help to check the credibility of the question.
Thanks.
