Hi!
Though C dosen't make much sense to me but the answer should be C because it's the only option that solves the COMPARISION error.

Thanks

I will go with 'C' for lack of a better optin. I would have been more confident about my choice if 'C' was of the form 'Unlike other arachnids,....,scorpions have a....'

OA is C

But I have a problem with "as a mammal does" in C. Is that correct? Mammal has nothing to do with the arrangement of the nerve cells, so how can you say "does"? :?

Ask yourself this question "does a mammal has nerve cells evenly distributed"

answer would be "Yes it does", here does complements the comparison

What about verb agreement [#permalink]

What about the verb agreement ?
The non underlined part says- ..'unlike other arachnids..'
If it is a singular subject, then should the sentence not be along its body, rather than along their body ?
Thanks

Like/Unlike is used to compare nouns.
Compare arachnids...with scorpion..
I ignored the mammal. :lol:

My reasoning is; even tough we say arachnids each arachnid has only one body and not bodies. If we say "bodies" it sounds like they have several bodies... :?
