The desktop computer has revolutionized offices procedures more than any machine of modern times.

a) any machine
b) has any machine
c) any other machine
d) has any other machine
e) any other machine has

It's easy to eliminate A and B because we need "other". But wouldn't C mean:
The PC has revolutionized
office procedures (A)
more than
any other machine of modern times(B)
?

I thought we need another has to make sure that revolutionized doesn't belong to the second part.

It has to be C....'other' is required to demo contrast.

(D) is wordy and correct comparison is not presented...

Correct comparison of machines presented only in option (C) -

The desktop computer has revolutionized offices procedures more than any other machine of modern times.

Correct comparison form is - X more than Y not X more than has Y

Thanks Abhishek009. Earlier I felt that there is a difference in meaning between C and D. But looking again I feel there is only one meaning and choice C makes that less wordy.

I guess in C office procedures are being compared with any other machine which is illogical.

Choice C - Desktop computer has revolutionized office procedures more than any other machine is ambiguous and can mean 2 things -

1) Desktop computer has revolutionized office procedures more than it has revolutionized any other machines
2) Desktop computer has revolutionized office procedures more than any other machine has

Choice D should be correct answer as it removes this ambiguity.
