C.

E would have been close, but the part in bold is not required -
as apparent as it is in its

OA is C indeed ... I picked E earlier on ..
The reason why E is wrong must be the pronoun "it" ... "it" is not uniquely referring to a noun .. I missed it..

i dont know why this question is in "Brutal SC."

the idiom is more X than Y. we just have to make sure X and Y are parallel.

BDE are wrong in that the idiom is wrong.

A is wrong in that their government buildings are compared to the influence of Euro architecture. Their is not the correct pronoun. It should be it.

C is correct. influence of Euro Architecture.... in its....

Place “Prakta” is singular – so require singular possessive form – Eliminate A, B and D.

(A) more apparent than their
(B) so apparent as their
(C) more apparent than in its (hold it)
(D) so apparent than in their
(E) as apparent as it is in its ( as apparent as compares equality, but sentence require comparative / emphasis form – Eliminate it)

C

E. as apparent as 'it' is in its

it is ambiguous and wordy.

'as apparent as its' would've been fine.

There is another post with more replies.

I believe OA is C.

D is definitely wrong as 'their' refers to singular noun Prakta.

+1 for C
"their" is out --> incorrect pronoun
E contains it ....its --> not correct here

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.

(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

Can anyone explain why the answer is D and not C.?

C. For 2 reasons:

1. "No more than" is a correct idiom.
2. Singular pronoun is required for singular noun...

Nowhere in Prakta (singular sub)is the influence of modern European architecture more apparent than their government buildings.
(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

their eliminated cos of singular subject
so left with C n E
E is a akward from 'as it is in its'

So C is the ans

Choice between C and E, I choose C... E is wrong because "it" is ambiguous

Went with C. It sounded better and the correct idiom is more X than Y

A – Not parallel. “than in” is missing. Incorrectly Comparing building with influence. Eliminate
B – wrong comparison. Building Vs influence. “as apparent as” is correct. Eliminate
C – Correct comparison – influence in Buildings in prakta Vs influence in Nowhere in prakta. Also Parallel. Keep
D – “so apparent than” – wrong usage. “as apparent as” is correct. Eliminate
E – First “It” – “influence of modern architechture”. Second its – Prakta. It can only refer one antecedent to avoid ambiguity. Eliminate.
