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)

Answer: C

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 – 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.

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

there is only two ways, in which the two nouns compared are different. the two nouns are different because their adjective phrase, normally preposition phrase are different. or the two nouns can be different because the corresponding whole clauses are different. normally the two corresponding whole clauses are different because their adverbs , normaly a preposition phrase , are different .

this problem is in case 2.
so, in the first case, we use "that/those" , in the second case, we keep only the adverb of the second clause
in other words, if we see only preposition phrase after "than" , it is likely that the two nouns are compared because their whole clauses are different.

choice c show us this case 2.

knowing about two cases of comparison helps us realize the correct answer soon. although it is more easy to find an error in a choice and eliminated it, knowing the correct pattern help you be more confident to choose the correct one.
