"Specific divergent sites" and "most hybrid religions" are not two different things; Most hybrid religions are specific divergent sites. "As" is not used to compare, but to mean "in the role of". Thus the issue is not between "like" or "as". Another example:

In the test and over here in the forum, it is still showing "Religion" only. This typo is actually making it quite difficult to comprehend the meaning :?

It is supposed to be "religion" only. In one of the places "religion" was wrongly mentioned as "region" - this typo was corrected.

I don't understand the meaning of the sentence.

Could someone explain what is a divergent site that embraces both the material and immaterial? And, how is it related to hybrid religions?

Hybrid religions are set in an unconventional way. (setting= site, unconventional = divergent). They are unconventional in that they accept ( embrace) both the real world (material) and the imaginary world ( immaterial). Because of this reason the hybrid religions can have ideas that are incompatible to each other. (incompatibility = incongruity)

Comma + present participle is a verb modifier. In option D ",embracing..." refers to the main verb "are". However "embracing" is supposed to refer to "sites". Without the comma, the option would be alright.

A. As specific divergent sites that embrace both the material and immaterial, in varying degrees, most hybrid religions
B. In similar way that specific divergent sites embrace in varying degrees the material and also the immaterial, most hybrid religions
C. As specific divergent sites embrace both the material and the immaterial, most hybrid religions in varying degrees
D. Most hybrid religions, as specific divergent sites, embracing in varying degrees both the material and the immaterial,
E. Specific divergent sites embrace both the material and the immaterial in varying degrees, similarly most hybrid religions



Thanks for the great question:

I have a question regarding first option and the usage of "The" after both, can we still call the option parallel?
I thought the parallel maker both ...... and should absolutely be mechanical, in this case: Both the material and the immaterial.

Please advise me if my understanding needs revising.
