I am not convinced by the official solution.
"as compared to" is an unidiomatic expression. "in contrast to..." or "Contrasted to/with" is in my opinion idiomatic.
Can some expert please clarify?

Thank you.
Kind regards.


The usage "as compared to" is valid. Here since a comparison is made, it is alright to use "as compared to". Nonetheless, the expression "compared to" ( without "as") is also valid.

Moreover contrasting may not be appropriate here since a comparison is made to show that one is greater than the other - not one is the opposite of the other.


Please help me. I am in doubt with respect to accepting the expression "as compared to". there is no doubt that as compared to referring to the ratio. My doubt is that whether the construction is valid?
For example -
1. "Compared to ratio of 42 times their pay, the ratio of 419 times the pay is big." is okay.
2. "Compared to ratio of 42 times their pay, CEO's earn 419 times the blue collar workers" is wrong. Comparison is between CEOs and ratio.
Here in the answer choice C, the construction is just a flip of 2 clauses in the second example, but I think comparison is invalid.
The second example is same as "CEO's earn 419 times the blue collar workers, compared to ratio of 42 times their pay"
Please help me I'm struck here.
i believe, 'as' doesn't make any difference.
