less by X than by Y

X,and Y must be parallal (same part of speech)

here X is noun so a noun (end) is reqd.

Anyone got any insights, next time I'll underline and provide all choices, I just felt that the other ones weren't even worth posting. Won't happen again.

oh i get the trick here

this is no doubt a question on parallalism, with C and E having parallal elements

"coming to an end of----" is a gerund acting as a noun.

"C" is the only one which properly conveys the meaning
