A) Unlike many United States cities, where a river is no longer the focal point of urban life, the river in San Antonio
B) Unlike the river in many cities in the United Stated, which is no longer the local point of urban life, in San Antonio the river
C)Today the river in many cities in the United States is no longer the focal point of urban life, unlike San Antonio, where it
D) In few United States cities today, a river is the focal point of urban life, but the river in San Antonio
E) No longer do many cities in United States have a river as the focal point of urban life, but in San Antonio the river


A - not the best choice. Unlike many cities in US is compared to the river. Invalid comparison
B - Invalid comparison again. Unlike the river in many cities is compared to San Antonio
C - The sentence should have had "in San Antonio" at the end of the sentence.
D - Invalid comparion ("In few United States cities today" compared to "but the river in San Antonio")
E - Best Answer.

A) Unlike many United States cities, where a river is no longer the focal point of urban life, the river in San Antonio
cities v/s river = eliminate
B) Unlike the river in many cities in the United Stated, which is no longer the local point of urban life, in San Antonio the river
river v/s river
C)Today the river in many cities in the United States is no longer the focal point of urban life, unlike San Antonio, where it
river v/s San Antonio = eliminate
D) In few United States cities today, a river is the focal point of urban life, but the river in San Antonio
Improper contract with but , it should be like ...
E) No longer do many cities in United States have a river as the focal point of urban life, but in San Antonio the river
Improper comparison .... correct form would have been => ..... San Antonio has a river ....

B for me.

Sentence has comparison and pronoun reference issue

A) Unlike many United States cities, where a river is no longer the focal point of urban life, the river in San Antonio [Comparison between Many United States cities and the river – eliminate it]

B) Unlike the river in many cities in the United Stated, which is no longer the local point of urban life, in San Antonio the river [Good one but which is pointing the United States – eliminate it]

C)Today the river in many cities in the United States is no longer the focal point of urban life, unlike San Antonio, where it [It has referent issue – points to San Antonio / River – eliminate it]

D) In few United States cities today, a river is the focal point of urban life, but the river in San Antonio [Changing the meaning of the sentence – eliminate it]

E) No longer do many cities in United States have a river as the focal point of urban life, but in San Antonio the river [Hold it]

I agree it's E

A) Unlike many United States cities, where a river is no longer the focal point of urban life, the river in San Antonio
Wrong comparison
B) Unlike the river in many cities in the United Stated, which is no longer the local point of urban life, in San Antonio the river
Wrong comparison
C)Today the river in many cities in the United States is no longer the focal point of urban life, unlike San Antonio, where it
Implies one river in many cities
D) In few United States cities today, a river is the focal point of urban life, but the river in San Antonio
Impies rivers are focal points when they are not
E) No longer do many cities in United States have a river as the focal point of urban life, but in San Antonio the river
