Official Solution:

Even though the foreign exchange student was from a completely different culture, it was not long before she felt comfortable between us.

A. between us
B. between most of us
C. in between us
D. among us
E. in this culture where the rest of us are comfortable


The sentence is testing the correct use of the preposition among to refer to the position of persons or things in a group of other people or objects.
  1. The word between should be used only for groups of two and does not sufficiently establish the idea of a culture
  2. Between should be used only for groups of two; most of is unnecessary
  3. The phrase in between refers to a span between two entities.
  4. The word among correctly locates the student in the midst of a completely different culture.
  5. The phrase is awkward and unnecessary.

Answer: D

I think this is a poor-quality question and I don't agree with the explanation. If technically correct, the answer must be accepted. In reality, around us also suffices as a contrast in culture.

Hi Expert,

Please help how "around us" is inferior to "among us"

Explanation : around us does not give the sense of the student being in a completely different culture.

I could not understand it well
