B.

The sentence, as it stands, makes no sense because the first part is not an independent clause and therefore the use of a semi-colon is incorrect. Eliminate A C.

The use of 'it' is incorrect in E. Eliminate.

Choice D is saying that congestion pricing has more support do politicians. This is an incorrect comparison. The original sentence wants to convey that congestion pricing has more support from economists than from politicians. B correctly conveys this.

We can easily eliminate 4; answer becomes B.
A. no llism
B. Has llism
C. sentence before semicolon is not a stand alone
D. no llism
E. 'it' after comma - not needed here

But among makes me somewhat inconvenience, but all the other answers can be eliminated easily. So, B is the answer. "from" would have been better than "among" in B

The OA is indeed B.

I chose D because B confused me with "among". If "from" was used in place of "among", I would have chosen B.

GK_Gmat, You mentioned, "Choice D is saying that congestion pricing has more support do politicians.". I am still having a hard time on how using "do" has an incorrect comparison. I appreciate if you can dwell more into this.

Thanks

"has more support from economists than do politicians "

one way to prove noon-llism:
support from economists - passive voice
do politicians - active voice.

another way, try to make the sentence into two: (than will support llism)
has more support from economists - okay
has more support do politicians - blunder

There would be otherways as well.
