C should be the answer
(A) made a comparison of the Federal Reserve and an automobile as racing through a tunnel, bouncing
in this sentence bouncing modifies the whole sentence before comma
(B) made a comparison between the Federal Reserve and an automobile racing through a tunnel, bouncing
in this sentence bouncing modifies the whole sentence before comma
(C) compared the federal Reserve with an automobile as racing through a tunnel and which bounced
(D) compared the Federal Reserve to an automobile racing through a tunnel, bouncing
in this sentence bouncing modifies the whole sentence before comma
(E) compared the Federal Reserve with an automobile that races through a tunnel and it bounces
in this sentence it could be tunnel also

Hi guys,

IMHO: D

A wordy, to make a comparison = to compare
B same
C for me, 'an automobile as racing' sounds bad...
E for the 'it' is unnecessary

@ WinIT: do you think 'it' can refer to the tunnel? in this case, I would not have doubt coz the tunnel cannot bounce, can it?

@ LiveStronger: this difference sounds interesting... however, I'm not able to find anything about this in wordreference.com. Could you please add a link to any grammar reference?

OA?

Cheers
