599. Recent excavations suggest that the ancient peoples of the Italian peninsula merged the cult of Damia—a goddess of fertility and the harvest—with Venus.

(A) with Venus
(B) and Venus
(C) with that of Venus
(D) and Venus’
(E) and Venus’ cult

Please, explain difference between "merge X with Y" and "merge X and Y". Are both idiomatic?
Thanks in advance.

i believe both should be ok but here the scenario is different because of llism.

the parallel structure is: a of x with b of y.

see the difference:

(A) with Venus - not parallel. its like a of x with y.
(B) and Venus - not parallel. its like a of x and y.

(C) with that of Venus - ye, its parallel. its exactly a of x with b of y.
(D) and Venus’ - not parallel. its like a of x with y's.
(E) and Venus’ cult - not parallel. its like a of x with y's b.



so it is C.
