This is not relevant to the clause before this You want to talk about species, not polymorphism

Looks good This is clear and concise.

C) the polymorphism of the dog breed makes it particularly difficult to categorize

Same reasoning as A

This is more wordy than choice A.

OFFICIAL EXPLANATION


After reading this what we really need to take a second look at is "their dissimilarity to each other." According to this phrase, the subject of this sentence is plural rather than singular.
Looking at our answer choices, that eliminates (A), (B), (C), and (D) since they all have singular subjects: "the dog breeds' polymorphism," "the dog breed," "polymorphism of the dog breed," and "polymorphism The . ." Only (E) is left, with "members of the dog breed" as its plural subject, and it is a clear, understandable sentence.

Correct answer is Choice (E)





Learnings & Insights

  • If you are not sure about the pronoun reference or the number, Do check the non- underlined part carefully.
  • 'Like' must be followed by noun/pronoun and must represent a logical comparison
