A) instead of by is wrong
C) instead of by is wrong
D) rather than by is wrong
E) usage of such and it

B because of the usage of like. 'such as' refers to specific examples while like refers not only those specific examples but others too. also use of 'rather than' and 'for them' is correct.

In fact, i t should be E not B. such as is better than like. it refers to religion.

D is my answer although I was unsure about E. What is "it" or "them" referring to? I was a bit confused

It is E.
'Better' in non-underlined part must be followed by 'than'

Man prounouns galore.

Elminate anything ending w/ them. Because religion is singular.

Kills B&D.

Such is used for examples, so at this point I said E.

"Instead of by" is very wrong.

I knew that there was problem with "it" and "them" but i got a bit confused. The plural word buildings and spaces made me think that "them" was needed.
