Mohankumarbd, thanks for posting great questions.

Could you double check your answers?

The answers for Frank Lloyd & Weight Loss questions (Q# 6 & 7) seem to be incorrect.

Frank Lloyd:
The correct idiom: Remembered + for (Which eliminates A, C, D)
Which leaves us with B & E.
'Like' is used to compare two nouns, however, the Guggenheim Museum is not being compared to another noun in this case. It is rather stated as an example, therefore 'such as' should be used. Also the use of possessive "Museum's" is incorrect.
So B.

Weight Loss Question:
In order to keep the phrases parallel, we need: "self-deprivation", "adoption" to parallel "healthy lifestyle". (I am not 100% sure about this structure)
Correct structure is "Result not of [X], but of [Y]".
So B.

Please let me know if I am wrong or if I missed something.
