guptakashish02

The Russian communists of the early 20th century believed that they were overcoming the tyranny of the czars

the Chinese communists believe they were avoiding the misrule of the Guomindang.

The colored part is still wrong. If you change that too, then maybe the sentence will be grammatically correct but still miss the comparison

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



There are several common idioms that the GMAT tests you on that involve the word as. For example, just as...so too, as many as, as much by x as by y, etc. Also, this sentence wants to emphasize, not merely state, a similarity. Using the words ‘like’ and ‘similar’ does not convey the same sense of emphasis as the words ‘just as..., so too...’. So that eliminates choices B, C, D and E. Choice A is the best answer.
