is the answer b ?

Do you know why your life is so bad?
Before i can tell you the answer you need to answer these questions

When was the last time you took a serious action to improve your life?
When was the last time you broke out of your comfort zone just to attain a goal that can make you happy??

When was the last time you forgot about your shyness in order to improve your social life?

When was the last time you committed to your plans and schedules in order to reach your important goals?

If you believe that your life is so bad then you need to ask yourself that question When was the last time i took a serious action to end my problems? And when i say the word serious i mean a real serious action.

Option B

Since X's life and relationships getting more attention than Y's work and other contemporized work so "those of his contempories" is used.

Official Explanation:



Answer - B
Concepts tested: Comparisons, Idioms, Pronouns

A - ‘More X than Y’ is the right idiom. Moreover, we are referring to the works (plural) of Wilde’s contemporaries. Therefore, ‘those’ and not ‘that’ is required in option A.
B – Uses the right comparison.
C – Same as A
D – Same as A
E – Same as A.
