Souvik is bang on target, as always.

Though, I don't think this was a 700 level question.

Please explain why option E is wrong?
grants vs have granted

Please post OA of the questions!
"those" is necessary for plural nouns and introduced by is parallel to supported by!
"being" is never true when used as a modifier.

The Act...have. S-V error. If anything, would have to be "has granted," but even then, the perfect tense isn't required.

Can someone concisely explain when it is required to use "those of" or "that of" when performing a comparison? I'm not 100% sure when you can say X is similar to Y, or when you need to use X is similar to that of/those of Y.

A - The comparison is wrong in the original sentence. 'rights and responsibilities' are compared to 'civil marriage'.
B - 'supporting by' breaks the || structure. Also 'granted' changes the tense without any reason
C - 'being introduced' is wrong because the act is already in place.
D - RIGHT. 'those' helps get the comparison right.
E - 'have granted' changes the tense without any reason

I have overlooked The S-V mismatch in the choice E. But can some one explain me would that be still wrong if it were "has granted". I am left here in the dark when I see the comments that present perfect changes the tense unnecessarily. IMO since the introduction of the law lays in the past; it does make sense for me the usage of perfect tense here, because act granted rights and it is effects are still in place today/
