A. What was as remarkable as the development of the compact disc (We have two different tenses – ‘was’ and ‘has been’ – wrong)
B. The thing that was as remarkable as developing the compact disc (tenses again; also ‘the thing that was’ not very clear and awkward)
C. No less remarkable than the development of the compact disc (good)
D. Developing the compact disc has been none the less remarkable than (wrong comparison ‘none the less … than’, also the meaning has changed)
E. Development of the compact disc has been no less remarkable as (same as D – wrong comparison ‘no less… as’; also the new meaning implies that development of CD was more remarkable than the use of the technology – but the meaning of the original sentence is the opposite).

Usually while solving SCs I try to find a pattern and then ask myself - "what is the SC testing for"? Most of the times in a given SC atleast 2 concepts are tested.
Intially I could not figure out the pattern. Thi sSC tests for idiom- "no less X than Y" and verb tense.

OA is C
