did the first release of Superman in 1978
had the first release of Superman in 1978
in the first release of Superman in 1978
the first release of Superman in 1978 did
the first release of Superman in 1978


It talks about parallelism--In No other....as in the first...

In no other options 'in' is used except in C

C is the Right Choice.

only C makes sense. Also, this is a common pattern in gmat.
"in sth" + (As) + such ...as + (that)+ (as) + in sth

In no other movie did a DC comics character cause such a worldwide sensation as (DC comics character) in the superman in 1978. But there is one more ambiguous meaning.

Hi harikrish,

Here is my analysis :)

REVERSE CONSTRUCTION:

_There is one pencil on the table.

In this sentence:

+Subject = one pencil

+Verb= is

So the above sentence can be written as:

_One table is on the table.

Getting back to the question:

The sentence: In no other movie did a DC Comics character cause such a worldwide sensation as did the first release of Superman in 1978. is equivalent to:

In no other movie a DC Comics character DID cause such a worldwide sensation as did the first release of Superman in 1978.

COMPARISON:

The comparison here is between 2 PREPOSITIONAL PHRASES:

_a DC Comics character DID cause such a worldwide sensation IN NO OTHER MOVIE [PREPOSITIONAL PHRASE]

vs

_a DC Comics character DID cause such a worldwide sensation IN THE FIRST RELEASE OF SUPERMAN IN 1978 [PREPOSITIONAL PHRASE]

A. did the first release of Superman in 1978

REVERSE CONSTRUCTION:

the first release of Superman DID in 1978 --> WRONG MEANING because the first release of Superman DID NOT DO anything. It is a DC Comics character that DID

B. had the first release of Superman in 1978

REVERSE CONSTRUCTION:

the first release of Superman HAD in 1978 --> WRONG MEANING because the first release of Superman DID NOT HAVE anything. It is a DC Comics character that HAD

C. in the first release of Superman in 1978

CORRECT since C properly conveys the intended comparison.

D. the first release of Superman in 1978 did

LIKE A

E. the first release of Superman in 1978

WRONG because we are comparing:

_A clause = a DC Comics character DID cause

TO

_A phrase = the first release of Superman in 1978

Hope this helps :)

Please remember to include your sources whenever you post new SC questions!

This one is a very thinly-veiled knockoff of this official question: https://gmatclub.com/forum/in-no-other- ... 24215.html. I'd strongly recommend directing your energy toward the official version instead.

Moreover , I feel that we don’t really need a “did” or a “had” as the year 1978 is mentioned. And of course the word “in” is required. Hence C.

Makes sense?
