hi clipea12,

this question tests on following concept...
1) parallelism : beaches cannot be paralled with a place but its beaches..
2) seem likely and seem to : seem like is not appropriate here as it means like whom.. eg he seems like a gem of a person
3) compared with and compared to.. although compared with is correctly used in non underlined portion, it may be of help in some other question...
compared with to highlight differences in common things and compared to to highlight similarity in uncommon items...

lets look at the choices -

A) Maine seems like they have not dramatically changed in the past few centuries.
incorrect .. does not fulfill point 1 and 2

B) Maine's seem not to have
correct

C) Maine beaches seems like it has not
it is singular but plural is required.. seems to is better..

D) the beaches of Maine have not
removing seem changes the meaning

E) Maine seems as if it ha
wrong comparision.. wrong idiom used

Hi chetan2u,
Isn't choice B's omitted part would be [developed beaches] rather than beaches?
Thanks

A C and E are wrong because they refer to Maine rather than to its beaches.
D changes the meaning. The sentence is supposed to say that it seems that Maine’s beaches have not changes, not that they definitely have not.

B is the correct answer.
