If that question was directed at me, then my answer is: You have already selected the correct choice D on solid reasons. Then why is the doubt about E still?


On the same lines there is a comparison made like "You are more interesting then he" in MGMAT.

and it follows reverse test as well like "he is more interesting then you". where subjective comparison is made.

Sir please clarify this doubt.

wrt this example option E seems better. but its really confusing

Please explain your answer.....


1. We have a comparison. So it has to be "he", not "him". A, B, D are out.
2. How can we use past perfect here? There are no actions before. C, B are out.
It leaves us with E,the correct option.
Moreover.
3. Why "he was" in C? He is now. In general. C is out.
4. "Wealthy" has 2 syllables and ends with "y" so it will be "wealthier", not "more wealthy". D is out.
5. "who was thrust" seems redundant.

I really don't understand why is the last option i.e. option E is correct. It ends with 'He' instead of 'Him'. I have written a shorter version of option E below, please help me understand this better.
Shorter version of option E -
The man was always aware that he was a small-town Midwesterner thrust into a world dominated by wealthier people than he.
