Not an expert, just trying to help.

Clearly the confusion seems to be between option A and D.

Others can be eliminated because a second 'that' is definitely warranted - parallelism

Between A and D, option A is the correct choice. This is because 'more closely' is adverb of manner.

Adverb of manner always comes after the verb.

Example.

The ship is sinking slowly. - Correct - slowly comes after the verb (How is the ship sinking? Slowly (Adverb of manner))
The ship is slowly sinking. - Incorrect - slowly comes before the verb.

Hope this helps.

1. Firstly, the idiom is "More X than Y"- which therefore is also a parellelism marker. The X should be parallel to the Y.
2. Secondly, look at the meaning. The author means to say that it was closely integrated before but it is even more so now. Hence B because it conveys that PRECISE meaning, which D does not.

Since position of an adverb is NOT necessarily after a verb, I really do not see why A should be better than D. In my opnion, A and D are equivalent.

Guys,

There is no typo in this question.
I have actually taken this question from 1000 SC but have modified it little bit.

Many of us have got it right that the answer is between A and D.
And yes answer should be between A and D.
I wanted to know which one and that too with a reason.

Difference between A and D is the placement of "more closely".
In A it is placed after "integrated" and in D, it is placed before "integrated".

So which one should be right?

- Brajesh

So, this question has been modified, then how did you know that the answer should be A and not D?
It is not an official question any more and it is getting confusing here...
