I'm curious. Is there any distinction between "like" and "just like"?

Thanks

Hi septwibowo ,

As far as I know, Just like is almost always incorrect on GMAT.

The answer is A.
Since in this sentence the author is comparing a similarity between Gandhi, Kennedy, and Lincoln, and Churchill, we use Like.

Absolutely true, " Just Like " is always incorrect on GMAT

Here is a beautiful post from GMATNinja

https://gmatclub.com/forum/just-like-65 ... l#p1827766

Nothing wrong with the original sentence , correct answer must be (A)

Just like is slightly wordier than like. That's it. Nothing else wrong with it.
