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?

"so do I" or the similar ones in B and D should stand independently and hence, to put it in the original sentence, at least we need a connection such as "and".

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

(A) as doeshere the subject her passionate interest is singularhence we require does. at the same ime comparision is made between The aristrocatic values and her passionate interest. and we know as is to compate clause. so this answer choice seems correct
(B) so do wrong comparision and subject verb error. so is not used to compare
(C) as do comparision is correct but subject verb erroe
(D) so is the case with wrong for the reason stated above

hence A is correct
(E) similarly, does[/quote]

IMO A.
On the basis of singular object , her passionate interest in history , we can eliminate B and C. C is wordy and unidiomatic. Now its between A and E - I think we we include similarly in the sentence it needs to repeat the subject verb object format again, which is not the case here.
I would go with A , however, I can not provide a distinct reason to eliminate E.

To answer to your query why E should be eliminated,

--> 'As' is used for comparison.
--> Here, Aristocratic Values are being compared with her passionate interest

Hence A.

Why is E wrong? Because it is a comma splice, a fatal grammar error

Hi, guys. it should be "D". Choices A,B,C and E make no sense logically since they all indicate that her passionate in roman history place her in the French tradition.

It does not. B,C are completely wrong. D, E are wordy. A is perfect. 'As' is apt for comparisons

Hi Experts,
If the option A were So DOES, Can we say that even then it is right?
