Dear SajjadAhmad,

I'm happy to respond. :-)

First of all, notice that there is some discrepancy between what's underlined in the prompt and what is contained in the answer choices. I suspect that the underlining needs to be different in the prompt.

Basically, we have "unlike X, Alfred Russel Wallace." X has to be another person, so that we are comparing like to like. It took me less than 5 seconds to scan down the answer choices to see that only (B) works. This is way too easy.

This question would appropriate for a non-native speaker or other beginner simply was not ready for the challenge of the official questions. As low level practice, I could see that this question might have value. As something that would prepare you for the GMAT itself, this question is worthless.

I will say that it is true that Charles Darwin gets a LOT of credit, and Alfred Russel Wallace gets far less than he deserves.

Does all this make sense?
Mike :-)
