Please explain using elimination and also why is A wrong?


The Kwakiutl recognized one social unit larger than the tribe-the confederacy, which was a cluster of loosely knit, informally related neighboring tribes who interacted with themselves more often than between other tribes.

A. tribes who interacted with themselves more often than between
B. tribes who interacted among each other more often than among
C. tribes who interacted with one another more often than with
D. tribes, interacting among each other more often than between
E. tribes, interacting among one another more often than with


the reduced sentence looks like this.
[strike]The Kwakiutl recognized one social unit larger than the tribe-[/strike]the confederacy[strike], which[/strike] was a cluster of loosely knit[strike],informally related neighboring[/strike] tribes who interacted with themselves more often than between other tribes.


now, in a group people can interact "with one another", "amongst one another" whereas two people interact "with each other" . Never can a group interact "with themselves". NEVER. so A,B is out
C and D do not satisfy the grammar in the reduced sentence. they are clearly wrong.
only option C is left.
C is lucid and clear.

Ans. C

hope my explanation helped.

+ 1 for C
Interacted with--> correct idiom . So we are left with A and C. Now in A we have between , which is used for between we have 2 parties. For choose between A and B.

Therefore we are left with C .

Press Kudos if you like my post :)

'among' should only be used when comparing 3 or more, and 'between' for two.

We interact "with" one another and also interact "with" someone else. So, we need "with" two times.

C is the only one using "with" two times.

You can't use discuss 'between' other tribes because there are more than two tribes in the US. Yet gain, if one is not part of the other tribes, one can't discuss among the others. 'Interacted with' is the correct idiom in the second part rather than 'between' or 'among' in the given context.
In addition, to match this parallelly, we need another 'interacted with' in the first part. This combo we have only in C, which is the correct answer
