The new mayor is certainly more progressive than her predecessor, but she is not nearly as efficient.

1. but she is not nearly as efficient
2. but she, however, is not nearly as efficient
3. but she is nearly not as efficient
4. even though she is not nearly as efficient
5. despite being not as efficient

Good question. I chose C.(out of A&C).
But, didn't got satisfying explanation on "Why C is wrong?"

Meaning of the sentence: The new female mayor is more progressive than her predecessor. Her Predecessor was much more efficient.

1. but she is not nearly as efficient
Correct correct usage of but and nearly describes the efficiency

2. but she, however, is not nearly as efficient
Wrong ads however. Unnecassary and changes the sound of the sentence.

3. but she is nearly not as efficient
Wrong Wrong because nearly describes "not as efficient". This would say that she is as efficient as her predecessor but close to being not as efficient as her predecessor

4. even though she is not nearly as efficient
Wrong Even though changes the sound/meaning of the sentence

5. despite being not as efficient
Wrong despite changes the sound/meaning of the sentence. The lack of "nearly" changes the meaning of the sentence.

How do we know that "she" refers to the mayor and not her predecessor
