Hi,

Is idiom 'As compared to' correct? eGMAT says it is correct but OG Solution mentions otherwise.

I am referring to Verbal Review 2017 - Q.242. Please tell what's right and wrong.

If given the choice to either believe a third-party GMAT company, or the company that writes the GMAT, always choose the author of the GMAT. It only makes logical sense that you should trust the maker of the test, because it's the test-maker's opinions that matter when it comes to test content and rules.
