OA to follow


IMO: D

LIKE AND UNLIKE ==> THEY ALWAYS COMPARE COMPARABLE NOUNS OR NOUN PHRASES OR PRONOUNS.

A)Unlike 50 years ago, women in today’s world( 50 YEARS IS COMPARED TO WOMEN)==>WRONG

(B)Unlike 50 years ago, today’s women(SAME AS OPTION A)===> WRONG

(C)Women today, opposed to 50 years ago( AGAIN WRONG COMPARISON AND AWKWORD CONSTRUCTION)

(D)Unlike their counterparts 50 years ago, women today(CORRECT==>WOMEN COUNTERPARTS ARE COMPARED TO WOMEN +BOTH ARE NOUN)

(E)Opposed to their counterparts 50 years ago, today’s women(CORRECT IDIOM IS "AS OPPOSED TO")==>INCORRECT

IMO answer is D

A and B don't compare similar elements.
C is a fragment - No verb.
E - does not represent the intended contrast

IMO, D is correct.

Unlike 50 years ago, women in today’s world may choose to juggle a career and a family.

(A)Unlike 50 years ago, women in today’s world
Wrong. Compare "50 years ago" and "women".

(B)Unlike 50 years ago, today’s women
Wrong. Compare "50 years ago" and "women". Moreover, "today's women" sounds awkward.

(C)Women today, opposed to 50 years ago
Wrong. Compare "women" and "50 years ago"

(D)Unlike their counterparts 50 years ago, women today
IMO, Correct comparison: "women" vs "their counterparts" ==> make sense.

(E)Opposed to their counterparts 50 years ago, today’s women
Wrong. Change meaning. "oppose" differs from "unlike". Moreover, "today's women" sounds awkward.

Waiting for OA
