A. their children are more likely to excel when given a free rein as to excel when overprotected---wrong usage of more as
B. their children are more likely to excel when given a free rein than to excel when overprotected---correct
C. their children are more likely to excel when given a free rein as they are to excel when overprotected-----wrong usage of more as
D. it is as likely that children will excel when given a free rein as they are to excel when overprotected---it has no antecedent,instead we should use a pronoun for parents
E. it is more likely that children will excel when given a free rein than they are to excel when overprotected---it has no antecedent,instead we should use a pronoun for parents

EG[/quote]

more than should be used for comparison
more as --wrong
correct answer ----B

Idiom tested- More...than..

A. their children are more likely to excel when given a free rein as to excel when overprotected
B. their children are more likely to excel when given a free rein than to excel when overprotected
C. their children are more likely to excel when given a free rein as they are to excel when overprotected
D. it is as likely that children will excel when given a free rein as they are to excel when overprotected
E. it is more likely that children will excel when given a free rein than they are to excel when overprotected- change in meaning of sentence. The sense of probability in likeliness is lost with the use of will
