Hi..

No less than 50% have gone wrong on the Q as per the TIMER..

the main flaw is in the meaning, even if you leave grammer for a second..
NO LESS THAN means atleast that is the least possible..
All other choices change from ATLEAST to EQUAL.
.
kkrrsshh, E also does the same
A

E is wrong because What are as significant as X are
Double use of are makes it awkward.

I think C is false because it will make an awkward comparison.
For me, this is a comparison and i just read the phrase like "the constraints that domestic culture and ideology impose on decision making by national political figures ARE no less significant than international pressures.."
Hope this helps

No less significant than international pressures are the constraints that domestic culture and ideology impose on decision making by national political figures.

A. No less significant than No problem, lets check the others
B. The things that are just as significant as wordy
C. Just like the significant It has to be “as”
D. Not lesser than the significance of lesser is wrong/ also wordy
E. What are as significant as Difficult choice: “What” as a pronoun starting the phrase is far from the subject “the constraints”/ It also can be confused with a question

Answer A

try to build above sentence in following way -

the constraints {that domestic culture and ideology impose on decision making by national political figures} are {no less significant than} international pressures.
try to replace underline with other option and check only A make sense.

in actual question is made awkward to keep noun modifier attached with noun(constraints).
