(A) No less an expert than

(B) Not less an expert

(C) Not less expert

(D) Not less an expert than

(E) An expert not less than


The intended meaning of the sentence imo is --somebody who is as good an expert as John H. McWhorter has claimed ......
A imo conveys that meaning .

B on the other hand says John H. McWhorter has claimed..... , but the modifier looks awkward with a Not instead of No

A for me .

Help me out here guys !!

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



If you are not a native speaker of English, you might have some problems with this one. It is simply a language and style check, involving the usage of the idiom, no less an x than y. It is common to say in English media, for example, no less a superstar than Mrs. Jones. The correct answer choice here is A.

I agree with you!
The intended meaning should be that an expert who is as good as John McWhorter has claimed...
So, B and C are out.
Out of A, D and E, I will chose A, idiomatically correct.
