A) instead of by is wrong
C) instead of by is wrong
D) rather than by is wrong
E) usage of such and it

B because of the usage of like. 'such as' refers to specific examples while like refers not only those specific examples but others too. also use of 'rather than' and 'for them' is correct.

In fact, i t should be E not B. such as is better than like. it refers to religion.

D is my answer although I was unsure about E. What is "it" or "them" referring to? I was a bit confused

It is E.
'Better' in non-underlined part must be followed by 'than'

Man prounouns galore.

Elminate anything ending w/ them. Because religion is singular.

Kills B&D.

Such is used for examples, so at this point I said E.

"Instead of by" is very wrong.

I knew that there was problem with "it" and "them" but i got a bit confused. The plural word buildings and spaces made me think that "them" was needed.

Hi All,

Those who come to church with a predisposition to religious belief will be happy in an auditorium or even a storefront, and there is no doubt that religion is sometimes better served by adapted spaces of this kind instead of by some of the buildings actually designed for it.

(A) adapted spaces of this kind instead of by some of the buildings actually designed for it — Since there is already a comparison in the stem, there is no need to add "instead of"
(B) adapted spaces like these rather than some of the buildings actually designed for them — Religion is singular
(C) these adapted spaces instead of by some of the buildings actually designed for it — Since there is already a comparison in the stem, there is no need to add "instead of"
(D) such adapted spaces rather than by some of the buildings actually designed for them — Religion is singular
(E) such adapted spaces than by some of the buildings actually designed for it — We just needed this "than" to make the comparison complete

D is my answer although I was unsure about E. What is "it" or "them" referring to? I was a bit confused

Here "it" refers to religion which is singular....." religion is sometimes better served by such adapted spaces than religion served by some of the buildings actually designed for it."

better served by X than by Y ... only left with D and E
religion is singular , so D , which uses them is wrong.
