OA is wrong - that is the only reason this is listed as a "95% Hard" question?

I request the moderator to update the OA for this question. It is misleading and waste of time. Thanks!

(A) more apparent than their
(B) so apparent as their
(C) more apparent than in its
(D) so apparent than in their
(E) as apparent as it is in its


E is wrong because "it is " is wordy.
I think that gmat never let a choice wrong because it is wordy . i dont like choice E.

C is more concise.

the most easy way to eliminate wrong choices .

Pronoun issue : As subject is singular . Use IT or IT'S

A,B,and D out.

In E , IT is ambiguous .

Thus , C is correct.

So, this is the Tough & Tricky Question of the Day and majority of people who attempted this question believe that OA is wrongly mentioned. So, please either fix the OA or clear the confusion how D is correct..

"it" is required , not their
B/w C and E.
C is better than E as E changes meaning.

when you use a pronoun for something, then the same pronoun can't be used to refer to something else in the same sentence. in E 'it' refers to 'influence' but then 'its' apparently refers to 'Prakta'. so E is out.


Good stuff, I see this explanation in Manhattan SC Guide Chapter 12 (Pronoun & Modifiers:Extra) under the section "Nuances of Pronoun Reference"
