Choice C breaks parallel structure. Ignoring the rest, you can read the last part of the sentence like this: Requirements for a forest's soil, for a forest's air, for a forest's degree of moisture, and for a forest's weather conditions. Of course, "for a forest's" only needs to be stated once.

Hi all,

but also construction is idiomatic ....
This leaves us with C, D and E.

Function of AS:
1: It can be used for comparison : In this case the such as should be followed by a clause eg. in C - such as for the soil of a particular forest.
2: As a Function : In this case the such as should be followed by a noun eg in E - such as a for a particular forest's soil.

Here AS is used as a function therefore E.

Like is not used as a function so D goes out.


Hope it helps.

Thanks

Is there a transcription problem? where is the 'as' in E? If we use 'as' in the role playing function, then there should be no ' such" ; It should be just 'as'. The moment we use such as, it becomes part of an example.

The specific question is : what is the difference between 'for the soil of a particular forest' and 'for a particular forest's soil'?
