Souvik is bang on target, as always.

Though, I don't think this was a 700 level question.

Please explain why option E is wrong?
grants vs have granted

Please post OA of the questions!
"those" is necessary for plural nouns and introduced by is parallel to supported by!
"being" is never true when used as a modifier.

The Act...have. S-V error. If anything, would have to be "has granted," but even then, the perfect tense isn't required.

Can someone concisely explain when it is required to use "those of" or "that of" when performing a comparison? I'm not 100% sure when you can say X is similar to Y, or when you need to use X is similar to that of/those of Y.

E. introduced by the Labour government and supported by the Conservative and Liberal Democrat opposition, have granted civil partnerships in the United Kingdom with rights and responsibilities identical to those of


A - The comparison is wrong in the original sentence. 'rights and responsibilities' are compared to 'civil marriage'.
B - 'supporting by' breaks the || structure. Also 'granted' changes the tense without any reason
C - 'being introduced' is wrong because the act is already in place.
D - RIGHT. 'those' helps get the comparison right.
E - 'have granted' changes the tense without any reason
