My shortlists are C and E.

Will go for E - more succinct and smoother - also removes 'they'

'army is singular - 'they' would be plural. So 'they' should be out.

A- 'they' 'in their' - very awkward
D-'in their' - not ok (just as in A)
B - has more than needed 'had'

Hi

the subject here is Napolean's Army, which is singular. hence all options with they are out i.e. A,B,C andD are out. that leaves only E.

I agree with Venksune...E should be the OA

Concur with E because of the plural component implied by ABCD

I agree with the concept of 'they' being a wrong usage. But the choice brings in another confusion in the form of 'than for...'. Is this a right usage and if yes please explain where and when it can be used.

Thanks

hi

I think 'than for' is quite common in english usage.

Example : she was more pepared for her english exam than for Math (exam)

Example : There's something for everbody in a country's development, but there is more for the rich than for poor.

and so on....
