bit late to realize, A is correct. "as" should be used to represent the likeness with the first part of the sentence. "does" is needed because it is 3rd person.

Is my view correct?

pkmme,

According to me,it is based on the underlying priniciple that the comparisons must be structurally and logically parallel.It is Like X.... as Does.... Y.

my rationale for A is that 3rd person needs "does" . "do" is used for 1st and 2nd persons.

(A) as does
(B) so do
(C) as do
(D) so is the case with
(E) similarly, does


her passionate is singular, so we need does, not do. Therefore, A is the correct choice.

Usage of "so" and "similar" make the intended meaning change.

Choose A, but got confused between as does or as do, good question. Can someone share more examples of do or does question to have clearly understanding where to use 'do' or 'does'.

I didn't have much strategy for this question, just realized it had to be singular and from there went with what sounded best.

Answer A is the best choice. The option "so does" would have been even better.

Correct Answer (A)

Needs "Does" in answer --- "her" --> Singular...
(E) Stylistically inferior...

passionate interest is singular, hence as does is correct.
A

passionate interest is singular so B and C are out. here passionate interest is action noun so D is out. "similarly does" awkward construction. hence, A wins

i pick A here. her passionate interest is singular so it takes singular singular form of verb.

When two verbs are compared it is 'as' that is used most for comparing.

Also if the option would have been 'just as' even that would have been correct.

Her passionate interest in history is singular and hence does is the correct answer.

E is wordy and not parallel.

As is the best choice to compare two verbs or actions.

Hope this helps!!!

"her passionate interest" is singular, so we need "does". Only A makes a good comparison and proper parallelism

why D is wrong?

because the pattern "so do I" is used only in spoken english not in writen english or because in the pattern "so do I" the subject must do the same action of the previous clause?

please explain.
