Use of "much more" is absurd.
What if I re-write in this way...Family Family traditions of colonial Americans were more focused on community than individuals.

In my opinion, what's being compared in the sentence is:
Family's tradition before AND family's traditions today.

The focus back then on community was more than it is today.

If the option D were 'on individuals', would that be correct? To me it seems like it would. Can someone please confirm?

Thanks!
