conciseness indeed
Ex: Matt's dog is larger than Steve's [dog is]
What is in brackets is ellipsed and you stand with the underlined part as most concise

Adding to this discussion...
choice (C) Stravinskyâ€™s is and less influential than Arnold Schonbergâ€™s is, it sounds awkward as well, does this makes sense "Stravinsky's is" (We are repeating "is is")?
