A. its inception in the 1950s
B. had its inception in the 1950s
C. at its inception in the 1950s
D. its inception in the 1950s did
E. at the time of its inception - the 1950s



C should be correct.

As is a comparison and a parallelism marker.

The two entities being compared are time moments..

at no other time .....AS.... at its inception in the 1950s

E is awkward. The rest of the options are either not parallel and/or make illogical comparions.

I am to new to gmat!!
But I guess answer is D as 'as' should be always followed by clause if it's not used for function/role.

And I see D is the only clause

Hi Experts,

Please clarify if my understanding is correct.
C. at its inception in the 1950s

inserting the choice C into the original sentence.

The iconic status of Rosa Park's refusal to give up her bus seat to a white passenger in Montgomery, Alabama, is proof that at no other time did the civil rights movement succeed in moving public opinion as [it had] at its inception in the 1950s.

Now the highlighted part, "it had" is removed as redundant?

Please help

Well, that gets at the underlying meaning, but it's more that we're comparing times, not actions. At no other time than X did this happen so much.

By the way, this is a close copy of an official GMAT question: https://gmatclub.com/forum/in-no-other- ... 24215.html

--We are trying to compare the time with time in this question, thus the comparison should make sense.
A. its inception in the 1950s -the comparison is falsely between opinion and inception
B. had its inception in the 1950s -invalid comparison and wrong usage of had
C. at its inception in the 1950s -Correct. The time of inception is correctly compared with the time in which Rosa sat in bus
D. its inception in the 1950s did -The comparison ins between civil rights movement and inception
E. at the time of its inception - the 1950s -This option changes the meaning by making "1950s" unnecessary information
