pls note
distinguished BETWEEN is preferred over distinguished FROM

now lets see
(A) which most distinguishes the Italians
from the French--wrong comparison
(B) which primarily distinguishes Italians
from Frenchmen--wrong comparison
(C) which generally serves to distinguish
an Italian sauce from a French one-wordy
(D) which is the major distinction between
the two great cuisines--two ??whom does it refer to?
(E) which most distinguishes Italian cookery
from French(cookery)--correct?

whats the OA?

C distorts the orignal meaning.

oregano serves to distinguish X from Y.
It's not Oregano that distinguish X from Y.
It's Oregano serving that distinguish X from Y.

A, B --clearly out.. we are talking about people istead of cookery. [non-underline part they are talking about Italian cusine]

D also distorts the orignal meaning.

two great cusines.. what is the other cusine.??.
Also


E is the best

distinguish Italian cookery form French [cookery]

I am between D and E but I choose D. In E I think it must be French's or French's cookery to be true. Can anyone explain?
