C?

D&E are ruled out straightaway as 'Between' should be paired up with an 'And'.
Not A because one thing can't be far greater as another thing. 'Than' has to be used.

OA after three attempts



More than 2 cultures/individuals...can't use between.....strike out D,E

Far greater than - Idiomotic usage......strike out A..

That = singular antecedent, here in option B referring to plural misunderstandings..

Only plausible left - C

(A) among different cultures are far greater as that among individuals from - wrong comparison word-Grater as. It should be greater than. That should be those.

(B) among different cultures are far greater than that among individuals from - that should be those. I think both 'individuals from' and 'individuals of' are correct hence this option can not be discarded on this basis only.

(C) among different cultures are far greater than those among individuals of - Correct

(D) between different cultures are far more than that between individuals of - It should be 'Between A & B'. Moreover, between is used for 02 items and Among shall be used for more than 02 items. Also, as misunderstanding is plural therefore reference pronoun that should be those. IMO 'more' is wrong here, as misunderstanding is not an uncountable noun, such as faith or love, for which we use more.

(E) between different cultures are greater by far than is that between individuals from - ''greater by far than is that'' is wordy and clumsy and wrong idiomatically. Also, taht should be those.

OA please......

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



You are comparing more than two cultures, so you are not going to use the word between. Therefore you can eliminate choices D and E. In choices A and B the singular pronoun ‘that’ incorrectly refers to the plural noun ‘misunderstandings’. Choice A also uses the incorrect expression ‘greater as’. Choice C is the correct answer.

--"that among individuals" -> refers to misunderstandings, which is plural. Hence it should be "those" among individuals.

(B) among different cultures are far greater than that among individuals from
--"that among individuals" -> refers to misunderstandings, which is plural. Hence it should be "those" among individuals.

(C) among different cultures are far greater than those among individuals of
-CORRECT

(D) between different cultures are far more than that between individuals of
----"that among individuals" -> refers to misunderstandings, which is plural. Hence it should be "those" among individuals.

(E) between different cultures are greater by far than is that between individuals from
--"that among individuals" -> refers to misunderstandings, which is plural. Hence it should be "those" among individuals.
--There could be more than 2 individuals. SO use among instead of between
