Can some one tell me why is option E wrong ? I am not able to fit the idiom in the correct option properly

Hi,

The correct idiom is "Just as X, so Y"

here the X and Y has be parallel.

For you doubt, the option E suggests that Chopin's Ballad takes the painist to world of classical romance. This makes the Chopin's ballad as the doer.

This is not correct. As in the first part of sentence, it is the reader who reads the dairy feels as being in 19th century. The second part also should follow the same. Making Painist feel the romance.

Also the reading is not parallel with the "so does chopin's Ballad".

So B is correct answer. as it is correct both idiomatically and parallel. Hope it helps.

D is eliminated in first view , "Just as ...... so ....... " is the correct use
