A) is maybe the more difficult for analysis

B )is probably the most difficult for analysis

C )is maybe the most difficult to analyze

D )is probably the more difficult for analysis

E) is, it may be, the analysis that is most difficult

Wanna know why not C?

Thanks

"is maybe" is not the right construction. should've been "may be"

I would choose "is possibly" any day. It just sounds a lot better.

But, isnt "maybe" supposed to be correct if and when it can be substituted with "perhaps"?

What is wrong there?

Note : maybe != may be.

Maybe is fine but it means By Chance only.
Probably means Likely

I would go with B

All the options here are incorrect.

C comes closer but the correct one would have been:

'is probably the most difficult to analyze '

'for analysis' doesn't suit here. It should be 'to analyze.'

Also, probably is better than may be.

Of all the metaphysical theories that attempt to reason human existence, Kierkegaard's existentialism is maybe the more difficult for analysis.

A) is maybe the more difficult for analysis
is the more difficult for analysis; compared to whom. In this sentence superlative form of the adjective 'difficult ',most difficult and not comparative form 'more difficult' is required.

B )is probably the most difficult for analysis
'difficult for analysis' does not sound good and the answer choice is passive

C )is maybe the most difficult to analyze
not the best answer choice but the best out of the lot
'difficult to analyze' is better than 'difficult for analysis'.

D )is probably the more difficult for analysis
same problem as A

E) is, it may be, the analysis that is most difficult
the sentence formation is awkward
