(E) only one in the East had

The comparison is not between the eastern and western states.

E should be the correct answer, B in tempting.

D for me.
Action verb should compare to “did” whre as possessive verb should compare to “had”.

Agree with scthakur. Always use verbs such as do/did (according to the tense) to show action.

I'm going for E.
The 'had' in E seems to refer back to the 'had' in the first part of the sentence

Requires Verbs Parallel

(A) only one in the East – [missing verb – creating sentence fragment]

(B) only one eastern state [missing verb – creating sentence fragment]

(C) in the East there was only one state [requires doing verb]

(D) in the East only one state did [Hold]

(E) only one in the East had [requires doing verb]

D!

i think major stake is between D and E ; i will go with D because :

By 1914, ten of the western states had granted women the right to vote, but only one in the East.

(A) only one in the East

(B) only one eastern state

(C) in the East there was only one state

(D) in the East only one state did

(E) only one in the East had - here the word "one" refers to what ?? logically it shud be to state but here it is referrring to "western state" ... a western state in east ?? .. huh

IMO B....I guess it is maintaining ||ism and also it is mentioning about eastern state.....there is lot of confusion in E, what does it mean by "only one in the East had", is that country, state or county? there fore I don't think E will be the OA.

I think B will be good.....what is OA?
