Its a Straight E.

It has the proper Idiomatic expression.

Just as Darwin's idea dethroned humans from their supposed unique place among biological entities, so Freud's ideas subordinated.

In simple expression,

Just as you sow,so shall you reap

Here, just have to know an idiom : Just as X, so Y (can also be written Just as X, so to Y)

just as x so y is the correct idiomatic usage.

There are some serious flaws in this problem.

First, the word "supposed" is not right. It's an adjective, but it has no noun to modify. It should be "supposedly" to modify "unique." (In theory, we could use "supposed" to modify the noun phrase "unique place," but it doesn't make a lot of sense here.)

Second, and more importantly, the last, non-underlined part of the sentence doesn't make sense. "Subordinated" and "subject to" shouldn't be used together. Freud's ideas either "subordinated the conscious to X" or "portrayed the conscious as subject to X." Together, these two forms obscure any sensible meaning. Then we have "the much more power forces." I'm guessing that's meant to be "powerful."

In short, be very careful with unofficial Verbal questions. You're probably better off digging out the 10th edition OG or redoing the problems you have one more time than studying highly-flawed English!

sometimes, jumping straight into the option choice will give a breakthrough in solving a gmat problem. This question is an example. There is no way to tell the main idea of the sentence until I read E.
So, to save time, read what should be read, or pay attention to only the right details.
