Looks C to me

(A) Even as they never forgave - trying to create a contrast
(B) While they never forgave - same as A
(C) Just like they never forgave - correct meaning
(D) Similarly to not forgiving - wrong tense used as well as wrong intent
(E) In spite of their never forgiving - wrong usage of inspite , should be used for contrast

(A) Even as they never forgave
(B) While they never forgave
(C) Just like they never forgave show simillarity between two parallel things
(D) Similarly to not forgiving
(E) In spite of their never forgiving

Can someone explain the answer as well. Thanks.


IMO C

"Even as" or "Even if" is typically used to imply that positive action has been done against odss.
e.g, Even as the crusaders overran their homeland, the Syrians have absolved the French

I think it should be 'just as' not 'just like'

in GMAT SC, the general practice is - select the "best" answer choice. "BEST" may not be always correct as per common English usage. :lol:

In comparison of clauses, we use 'as' in GMATLand.
Here in C, comparison is between two clauses.

clear A.

B --you need a 'while' to tell the time intervel in two simultaneously happening things. so here 'while' is not suitable.

C -- you dont use 'like' to compare clauses.

D-- similarly -- adverb

E -- awkward construction.

can't be A here...how does Even as make sense here???

Even as they didnt do something, they did something...shouldn't this be the format?

is the OA wrong here?
