Sample Question on Comparison [#permalink] New post 15 Dec 2013, 04:58
Known to its considerable opposition as "Seward's Folly", the purchase of Alaska was not unlike that of the Louisiana territory, which provided the United States with new land, a strategic military position, and control of the entire Mississippi River valley.

(A) not unlike that of the Louisiana territory, which provided
(B) not unlike the Louisiana territory, which provided
(C) like the Louisiana territory, which provided
(D) like that of the Louisiana territory for providing
(E) as that of the Louisiana territory for providing


Here we are comparing the purchase of Alaska to the purchase of Louisiana (as that of Louisiana). Eliminated B, C since the comparisons are not parallel.

Hung up between A, D and E. All of them seem to be correct to me. Help please :(
