Hi..
please keep the first few words as the topic name. It will help people in searching a topic easily...

let's see the Q..
1) UNLIKE is used , so there has to be a comparison..
WHAT is being compared - detective stories.... so they have to be OF an era and not IN an era........ELIMINATE A

2) the world of vs the worlds of.... the world of is correct.
Moreover there is a VERB issue in B if worlds is used... eliminate B
problem of 1950s and 1950"s in D... eliminate D

3) VERB - the world is singular and will take APPEARS

4) finally 1950s vs 1950's
1950s talks of a decade whereas 1950"s would talk of a specific point in 1950.
As we are comparing a centuary, it should be atleast a DECADE in comparison here..
1950s is correct

E

In above comparison how " those" refers to singular "the world"?
Those is used as demonstrative pronoun for plural (not singular) right?
