(A) but rather that it affirms
(B) but rather its affirmation of
(C) but rather it’s affirmation in terms of
(D) but instead of that, its affirming that => wordy / "its" no logical ref
(E) affirming rather => incorrect "rather affirming"

My Answer : B

(A) but rather that it affirms
(B) but rather its affirmation of
(C) but rather it’s affirmation in terms of - eliminate
(D) but instead of that, its affirming that - Subject-Verb , "ing"??? Why
(E) affirming rather - Wrong Idiom


This is how I thought

A & E - We need to use the "but" in the sentence to show the comparision.

Hence left with B,C & D

C - Too long, introduces "in terms of". Changes the context.

If you compare B & D
D can be eliminated straightaway.

Hence B is the answer.
