Hi all,
I was able to narrow down the options to A and E. The only difference between them are the words "despite" and "because". Could someone explain why E is wrong?


"Widely available technology such as high-resolution scanners and Printers" helps in counterfeiting. Hence it does not make sense to say because such technology is available, counterefting has become difficult. Hence Option E is wrong.

Popular options are A, B and D.
To simplify the comparsions b\w the actual objects, I've made simple and close analogous sentences for these 3 options.
Only in option A, comparison is done b\w similar objects.

A. Today forgery is harder than it was in ancient times, when forgery was common.
(Today’s forgery v/s. Forgery in ancient times) <-- Right

B. Forgery is harder than it was in ancient times, when forgery was common.
(Forgery v/s. Forgery in ancient times) <-- Wrong

D. Today forgery is harder than when forgery was common in ancient times.
(Today’s forgery v/s. time) <-- Wrong


Hope, it helps in clarification.
