We want to compare the action of granting voting rights in the west to the east.

Not Voting rights in the west to the state in the east. A B C are wrong for this reason.

D is clear and compares the same action.

E uses had which is not the correct word to compare action.

I am not aware of using a clause after but. Can some one enlighten me on that with an example?

hmm I will go with D.

If statement were like below then "had" would have been appropriate.
"ten of the western states had communication mechanisms", but only one in East had.
Here "had" is appropriate.. (it's not action verb.. be (possessive) verb )

"ten of the western states had granted women the right to vote", but only one in East had .

other part should have action verb too.. i.e "did".. what did ??? had granted women the right to vote..

what is OA?
