(A) among different species are far greater as that among individuals from

(B) among different species are far greater than that among individuals from

(C) among different species are far greater than those among individuals of

(D) between different species are far more than that between individuals of

(E) between different species are greater by far than is that between individuals from


This statement is talking about 4 animals.We can Eliminate D and E, with this logic.

Among is used for greater than 2 things, whereas Between is used for 2 things.


(A) among different species are far greater as that among individuals from
greater as -> Incorrect, It should be greater than

(B) among different species are far greater than that among individuals from
variations in life spans -> plural whereas That is singular pronoun Incorrect

(C) among different species are far greater than those among individuals of
Correct Answer.

IMO C

(A) among different species are far greater as that among individuals from---wrong, greater when used for comparison is followed by than, ...wrong usage of that, it should be those

(B) among different species are far greater than that among individuals from---wrong, usage of that is wrong

(C) among different species are far greater than those among individuals of---correct, those refers to variations in life spans

(D) between different species are far more than that between individuals of---wrong, that usage is wrong.....usage of between is wrong as per original choice

(E) between different species are greater by far than is that between individuals from ------wrong, usage of between is wrong and that is wrong
