I believe the idiom is as much as

Only (C) and (E) are idomatic.

But (C) changes the meaning. It is not the advent that is used, but the computer based recording itself.

I hope (E) is the answer.

Answer should be "E".

"much because of the advent of computer-based recording" - provides Adverb of REASON that modifies "has not been used".
"B" comes quite close - but if "B" werent have "as", only "much since" would have provided Adverb of Time.

:btw whats the OA, Boksana ?

I was down to B and E.

I chose B,... just because E seems to change the meaning of the sentence. The technique has not been used much is not the same as not used as much as before the advent of computer recording...

Although I know that the idiomatic express is "as much as"... so this is tough one. What's the OA?...

OA is B. I can't understand why.


P.S. This is from the Peterson's book ( with no detailed explanation).

I got E also, but was leaning for B. I think as much means "a lot" here.
