Hi!
Though C dosen't make much sense to me but the answer should be C because it's the only option that solves the COMPARISION error.

Thanks

I will go with 'C' for lack of a better optin. I would have been more confident about my choice if 'C' was of the form 'Unlike other arachnids,....,scorpions have a....'

OA is C

But I have a problem with "as a mammal does" in C. Is that correct? Mammal has nothing to do with the arrangement of the nerve cells, so how can you say "does"?

Ask yourself this question "does a mammal has nerve cells evenly distributed"

answer would be "Yes it does", here does complements the comparison

When you put it that way, it does make sense...

What about the verb agreement ?
The non underlined part says- ..'unlike other arachnids..'
If it is a singular subject, then should the sentence not be along its body, rather than along their body ?

Like/Unlike is used to compare nouns.
Compare arachnids...with scorpion..
I ignored the mammal.

My reasoning is; even tough we say arachnids each arachnid has only one body and not bodies. If we say "bodies" it sounds like they have several bodies...
