1. Task that is more poetic

a)than suggesting certain prudential and conciliatory measures --> Task cannot be compared to suggesting.

b)than that of suggesting certain prudential and conciliatory measures

c)than of suggesting certain prudential and conciliatory measures --> Task cannot be compared to of suggesting.

d)than merely suggesting certain prudential and conciliatory measures --> Task cannot be compared to suggesting.

e)than that to suggest certain prudential and conciliatory measures --> Change in meaning. It should be task that suggests rather than task to suggest. We are defining why instead of what. Hence, incorrect.

Try to understand the meaning of the sentence.

We believe
1) that the mission of art is a mission of sentiment and love, and
2) that the artist has a larger and more :
than

The author is trying to compare 2 tasks. Do you agree?

Now, option A says more task A than suggesting. Shouldn't it be Task A than Task B? what is suggesting? Is it a task or is it something author is suggesting? We are not clear on this. Hence, A is incorrect. D can be ruled out on same terms.

Option C is very weird. It says more Task A than of suggesting. What is 'of suggesting'? Task of suggesting or something else? Incorrect.

Now, comes our favorite B and E

As I mentioned in my previous post, the author is comparing two tasks. Task A and Task B. So, we should have more Task A than Task B.

You see the noun after more and after than?

Option E is actually saying more Task A than Task to suggest... As per the original meaning, are we supposed to compare the purpose of 2nd task? No, right?

Hence, option E is out. Only correct option is B.

We are very well comparing two tasks in B.

Feel free to ask 'n' number of questions.

P.S: My experience so far says this question is not that tough as it has been made. 95%?? Oh come on!!

I have more important tasks to complete than arguing with you.
I have more important tasks to complete than that of arguing with you.

Is second one the right statement?

"That" is a singular pronoun in your second sentence (more on "that" in this Topic of the Week), so it can't refer to the plural noun "tasks." Even if "tasks" were singular, there's no reason to repeat it in this case: "I have a more important task to complete than {the task} of arguing with you." The sentence is perfectly clear without repeating the word "task", so there's no need for the pronoun "that."

I hope this helps!

Hi GMATNinja
Then accordingly, option C should be correct right? (If that of need not be repeated)
