Sure Dude - Let's play the POE game .....

B. because, although the climate in Europe is fairly humid, libraries there are not subject of (proper idiom is "subject to" - eliminate) the extremes of temperature and humidity as those that

C. because, although the climate in Europe is fairly humid, libraries there are not subjected to the extremities of temperature and humidity as (extremities of temp is compared with damage - eliminate)

D. because the climate in Europe is fairly humid, but still libraries there are not subject of the extremes of temperature and humidity as
(there are more than one grammatical mistakes but "subject of" is sufficient to eliminate this )

E. because the climate in Europe is fairly humid, but libraries there are not subjected to the extremities of temperature and humidity such as those that

[b](Read the sentence with the clause joined with "because": â€

I chose A by POE. But is "subjected to" equivalent to "subject to"?

Yes, the former is passive and the latter is actively phrased. Both are idiomatic. "subjected of" is always WRONG.

IMO - "subjected to" means "exposed to" or "acted upon",

When gases are "subjected to" high pressure their volumes decrease

where as "subject to" means - "under the control of" or "governed by" --- Mars is "subject to" the same set of gravitational rules that govern the Earth.

We are all subject to God's whims
