Please explain using elimination and also why is A wrong?

the reduced sentence looks like this.
[strike]The Kwakiutl recognized one social unit larger than the tribe-[/strike]the confederacy[strike], which[/strike] was a cluster of loosely knit[strike],informally related neighboring[/strike] tribes who interacted with themselves more often than between other tribes.


now, in a group people can interact "with one another", "amongst one another" whereas two people interact "with each other" . Never can a group interact "with themselves". NEVER. so A,B is out
C and D do not satisfy the grammar in the reduced sentence. they are clearly wrong.
only option C is left.
C is lucid and clear.

Ans. C

hope my explanation helped.

+ 1 for C
Interacted with--> correct idiom . So we are left with A and C. Now in A we have between , which is used for between we have 2 parties. For choose between A and B.

Therefore we are left with C .

Press Kudos if you like my post :)

'among' should only be used when comparing 3 or more, and 'between' for two.
