E cannot be the choice per se, because a subject cannot have two verbs. There are two verbs in E namely -- tend and is -- Is there any problem in transcription and underlining? The verb –is - should be part of the underlining I suppose.

A. Children's tendency to be more susceptible to bronchitis and asthma than adults is ---Wrong comparison- comparing children’s tendency with adults

B. Children's tendency to be more susceptible than is the case with adults to bronchitis and asthma is ---- wrong comparison; we are comparing Tendency with a status, namely how the tendency is with adults

C. Children tend toward being more susceptible to bronchitis and asthma than adults, which is--- ‘which’ touch rule foul

D. Children, who tend to be more susceptible to bronchitis and asthma than are adults, are so --- The expression –Children, who tend to be— may restrict the meaning to only those who tend to be so and not to the entire children

E. Children tend to be more susceptible than adults to bronchitis and asthma --- precise and correct choice.

Sir,

Can you please explain what comparison is wrong with option B.

Sir,

Can you please explain what comparison is wrong with option B.

One side of the comparison is "children's tendency". So the other side should be "adult's tendency". Thus B is wrong.

Correct answer must be (E) for the highlighted errors in other options...
