A comparison should always be parallel.

X have restrained by reaching than by refusing.....This should be the correct structure.

OPTION : E

(A) by the refusal to sell

(B) not selling

(C) the refusal to sell

(D) refusing to sell

(E) by refusing to sell


KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



E

The phrase “less by . . .than by” is another connector that must link similar terms. What follows the first “by”? “Reaching.” So what must follow the second “by”? “Refusing.”(D) won’t work. It takes out the second “by,” which you need to complete the comparision.
