Sorry daagh Sir,
I will copy the context from now on whenever i get any doubt.

As virtually all the nation’s 50 busiest airports are, New York’s were built for an age of propellers, before jet planes weighing 800,000 pounds needed over two miles of runway.

(A) As virtually all the nation’s 50 busiest airports are
(B) As with virtually all of the nation’s 50 busiest airports
(C) Like virtually all of the nation’s 50 busiest airports
(D) Like the cities where virtually all the nation’s 50 busiest airports are
(E) Like other cities where virtually all the nation’s 50 busiest airports are

I got two doubts here:
In A:
1. why are we using present tense "ARE" in A to represent a past action of "built" is it because we are stating a fact? If so why 2nd clause is having a past tense verb, it also represents a fact.

In C:
what are we comparing:
Nation's 50 busiest airports with NY's 50 busiest airports ? If so : Nation's 50 busiest airports don't contain NY's 50 busiest airports?
If it do contain: then comparing same airports is wrong either how they were built or comparing the airports themselves.
Like Nation's other 50 busiest airports, NY's....
It sounds fair this way ?

Thank you
Best Regards

You are correct. This question is wrought with many dubious expressions.
