[Reveal] Spoiler: my doubt
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

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

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 .

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.
