First glance I was between B and D.

as such -- refers to "Herod’s city"

so --refers to what? here.. we are not refering to any action.

B should be the answer.


The expression “as such” has to refer to some status mentioned earlier.

“The CEO was a former drill sergeant, and as such expected everyone to obey his orders instantly.” In this case “such” refers back to “former drill sergeant.”


So: usage
—often used as a substitute for a preceding clause <are you ready? I think so>
<I didn't like it and I told her so>
so --refers to--> I didn't like it

This is no where close to a GMAT Q.

Where did this come from?
