I would go with B too. It keeps the un-underlined (hope that is a word) and underlined portion parallel...distinguishing a from b ... x from y.

'far less' is better than 'much less' & the idiom is 'distinguish X from Y'.

It is 'B'.

B is best. Distinguish X from Y is the correct idiom.

distinguish x from y is an unidomatic expression as per OG 2011 Ques 117.
so why B is correct then??

Distinguish x from y is not correct => its unidomatic..
