Hi,whenever the sentence has the word 'in' ...in something be careful. The sentence has to be parallel with ...in something...

In no other circumstance did Mount Tambora cause such a global disaster as did its eruption in 1815.
A. did its eruption in 1815 (Parallelism error)
B. had its 1815 eruption (Same as A)
C. in its eruption of 1815 (In is parallel with first part of the sentence)
D. its eruption of 1815 did (Same as A)
E. its eruption in 1815 (Same as A)

I think in A, Mount Tambora is parallel to its eruption, while in C it is parallel to itself so C is correct.

Is there a significant difference here between:
in 1815 and of 1815?

ErikLewe I think you are starting on wrong foot here. Let me help you in detail.

Use of as tells me that it is a comparison question. so lets find two entities to be compared.
1. In no other circumstance did Mount Tambora cause such a global disaster
2. Yet to be decided but reading 1 i can say it should be on that lines that ---- in some other case did Mount Tambora cause such a global disaster

Now look at 1 and 2 - i hope you can find the parallel structure with the use of 'In'. I hope this answers your question.

Only C maintains this parallel structure. C is the correct answer.

In no other circumstance did Mount Tambora cause such a global disaster as did its eruption in 1815.
Explaination: This question requires understanding of multiple concepts such as:
1. Parallelism-- Elements in the sentence must be parallel to each other.
2. Correct Comparison-- Comparison must be within same forms of elements.

A. did its eruption in 1815 // Wrong comparison: In first part it is stating the function of mount tambora in some circumstances but in second part it start talking about its eruption//
B. had its 1815 eruption // Same as A: Talking about eruption and not about mount tambora in other circumstances//
C. in its eruption of 1815 // Correct: Parallelism is correct as well as Comparison is correct.//
D. its eruption of 1815 did // Same as A//
E. its eruption in 1815//Same as A//

Hope this helps...
