There is nowhere in early American literature where the influence of Jane Austen is so apparent as the novels of James Fenimore Cooper.

(A) There is nowhere in early American literature where the influence of Jane Austen is so apparent as: Incorrect. It's too wordy and " Where" should refer to place. In this case, "in which" is preferred.
(B) In early American literature, nowhere is Jane Austen’s influence so apparent than in: Incorrect. Novels of James now becomes part of early American Literature. Changes meaning.
(C) It is nowhere more apparent in early American literature that Jane Austen was an influence as in: Incorrect. The focus of the sentence should be on Influence of Jane Austen while this sentence takes that focus away.
(D) Nowhere in early American literature is the influence of Jane Austen more apparent than in: Correct.
(E) Nowhere in early American literature is it more apparent that Jane Austen had an influence than: Incorrect. Jane Austen had an influence incorrectly changes the meaning.

Answer has to be D.

Another way for POE.

A) "Where" is for physical location. Here it is refering to Literature which is wrong. So apparent as is wrong as it removes the comparison.

B) In early American literature seems to be modifying "Nowhere" which is illogical.

C) This sentece change the meaning. It suggest that Jane Austen was herself was in the novels. Also more...that is used instead of more...than

E) Past perfect tense is used in the sentece. We don't have any other past action in this sentence

thanks
kudos appreciated.

OA after some discussion.


This quest test your idioms knowledge.
it should be either 'more...than' or ' so .....that'. only option D and E have this construction. In option E, it has used 'had' which is not require.
Hence correct option is D

While doing this question, it may be worthwhile to remember another similar problem that was doing the rounds in the 2006's and 2007's. The source is not clear. However, it seems that it emanated from the now disgraced 1000 series, which itself was a derivative of the official GMAT questions.

Nowhere in Prakta is the influence of modern European architecture more apparent than their government buildings.

(A) more apparent than their
(B) so apparent as their
(C) more apparent than in its
(D) so apparent than in their
(E) as apparent as it is
Ans : C
