460. It could be argued that the most significant virtue of a popular democracy is not the right to participate in the selection of leaders, but rather that it affirms our importance in the scheme of things.

(A) but rather that it affirms
(B) but rather its affirmation of
(C) but rather it’s affirmation in terms of
(D) but instead of that, its affirming that
(E) affirming rather

(A) but rather that it affirms
(B) but rather its affirmation of
(C) but rather it’s affirmation in terms of
(D) but instead of that, its affirming that => wordy / "its" no logical ref
(E) affirming rather => incorrect "rather affirming"

(A) but rather that it affirms
(B) but rather its affirmation of
(C) but rather it’s affirmation in terms of - eliminate
(D) but instead of that, its affirming that - Subject-Verb , "ing"??? Why
(E) affirming rather - Wrong Idiom

This is how I thought

A & E - We need to use the "but" in the sentence to show the comparision.

Hence left with B,C & D

C - Too long, introduces "in terms of". Changes the context.

If you compare B & D
D can be eliminated straightaway.
