though marked sub-600, took me 1:50

No, it is definitely not a sub 600. Even me at a certain point get a bit confused about, trying to figure out the gist of the question.

Whenever as soon as you feel confused and lost, trying to find an anchor point to make a split. It must be there, somewhere.

here a good point could be trascend VS trascends: it refers to an emotional state claiming that being right or something around here (it doesn't important that you do not catch the meaning completly but that there are good reasons beaing so).

So, you end up with C and E but E has more sense.

Does E not change the meaning "more important" in original sentence vs "as important as" in option E

in GMAT 'more .. than' is equivalent to 'as ...as'

I got down to C and E...I rejected E because of "not as important as".
is there any topic to explain why "as x as " is = to "more .. than"?
