COMPARATIVE 'closer' requires THAN as it is used for comparison..
Eliminate B and E

After modifier ' in the...' THAT is wrong start of the second part..
Eliminate D

Generally EACH other is used between two elements and ONE another is used for multiple elements.. eliminate C

The sentence is correct as it is..

A

KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



Scanning for differences among the choices, you can see that (A) and (E) contain acknowledge each other while the others use acknowledge another. Another in this instance is incorrect because it is unclear: Does it refer to a third party that neither acknowledges? If it does refer to the other national movement, then it uses the wrong idiom; the other or each other are the only viable options. Eliminate (В), (C), and (D). Choice (E) misuses the idiom closer...than by altering it to closer...as. The original sentence, (A), presents the best option.
