imo D.

malar,


if you remove middlemen , you will get following:

the contact is affected over a board surface instead of a series of regularly spaced points.(A)

the contact is affected over a board surface rather than at a series of regularly spaced points.(D)

Sounds better...

1. "instead of" is generally followed by a noun ."rather than" can be followed by anything.
2. "rather than" is used to compare clauses.

Agreed that it is D.
But why not B? "as opposed to"
What is wrong there? Just want to know.
