Please help.


The idiom "different than" is wrong, correct form is "different from". Thus E is wrong.

If you could elaborate why B seems awkward, then we may discuss further on the specific issue.



Thank you so much, sayantanc2k. I had completely ignored the idiom structure there.

However, I have another question.
If option E had the correct idiom (different 'from'), then would that (option) have been correct?

Not quite. The phrase "that of" would still be required after "different from" in order to maintain parallelism in comparison.

There are 3 modifiers for "a new species of sparrow":
1. "that lives only in cypress groves": relative clause
2. "almost wholly dependent ........... on cypress trees": phrase
3. "whose coloring is completely different...": relative clause

The second modifier is not a relative clause, but an adjective phrase... hence not parallel.

My POE was that 'whose' and 'that' cannot parallel.
Thus, B is the correct choice.

I am not sure if my approach was right.
