Local residents claim that San Antonio, Texas, has
more good Mexican American restaurants than any
city does
in the United States.

(A) any city does
(B) does any other city
(C) other cities do
(D) any city
(E) other cities

I read somewhere that do is used for plural and does for Singular.
Here we are talking of Mexican American restaurants, so shouldnt we use DO?

No....Does is correct

we are not using does for Mexican American restaurants as you have said but it is parallel to has in the sentence which is singular.....

Does here refers to has !!!

Hope this helps...!!!

i think "has" refers to San Antonio and "does" refers to any other city.

(A) any city does - any city includes 'San Antonio' also
(B) does [has] any other city - CORRECT
(C) other cities do - 'San Antonio' should be compatred with city and not cities
(D) any city - any city includes 'San Antonio' also
(E) other cities - same as C

Request you not to write your queries/answers/opinions in question window. It prevents ppl from analysing the question. The whole purpose of GMAT Club forum goes wasted by doing so.

all of us have enough grammar rules to do this question. the point is meaning analysis. this is so simple but change the way of thinking of sc

I agree with you that in this context B is intended meaning not C.

if C stands alone , C is ok. But in this context of the sentence , C is not logic

The underlined part of the question should be corrected.
I guess "any" in the original sentense is also underlined.
Thanks.
