C is best as it shows likeliness in two events. --> the Syrians never forgave the Crusaders "just like" they never forgave the French
A) "even as" means despite/although

Vote for C because of clear parallelism.

JUST LIKE avoids an unnecessary contraposition

the Syrians have never absolved both--the French and the Crusaders.

OA is A.
Don't know why but in OG 'Just like' is explained as wordy.

Any help from Gurus

'Even as' invites two contrasting statements, but these are two similar how could A be right?

my vote wud be C ....

somehow I feel its a lot better than A ...but let me try explaining A ...

C can be eliminated If and only when we take the ''just Like'' = the same WAY the syrians never forgave the crusaderz in the same ''fashion or manner'' the syrians never forgave the FRENCH...cos here it means the ''nature of not forgiving'' was same for both the crusaders and the french...

I don know If I was clear...
hope that helps !

Have fun

I chose A. 1:20

C has "just like" which I didn't like

I think the main thing is whether we can use "like" for comparing two actions , as is done in C.

Just like Justin,John did so and so....(comparing two people here)

I was not too comfortable comparing two actions using "like".

any other thoughts ?
