Hi mates,

IMO A

I think the idiom is "to force something/somebody to + verb" therefore, just A and E left. The point is the end: structures used to introduce examples are "like" and "such as" but not "as"

Therefore A

OA and Source?

Cheers

Hi, Like is not used to introduce examples. Only such as do. OA is E and source is psahil's notes.

By query is why E but C. Why not a participle? Is it because of 'to parellelism' (to force...to seperate)?? please clarify

it should be preceded by such as , (like in E) not like so E would be better choice
