(B) that for Grandmother, it was much easier to use a walker
(C) that for Grandmother, a walker was much easier to use
(D) for Grandmother, using a walker was much easier
(E) for Grandmother, a walker was much easier than


Time needed: 58s

Process of elimination:
1)Notice that there is "than to try" in the non-underlined portion of the sentence, hence we should look for something parallel. Eliminate A and D.
2) C compares "a walker" with "to try...". Eliminate.
3) E doesn't make sense. How can "a walker" be easier than "to walk..."? Eliminate E.

We are left with B. you might think that "it" is used incorrectly, but it's just a placeholder in this case. Hence, this is the correct sentence.

Correct answer: B

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



This question has to do with parallel structure. The correct structure is ‘to use’ and ‘to try’. A and D have ‘using’ and ‘to try’. Choices C and E do not have parallel structure either. They compare ‘a walker’ with ‘to try’. Choice B is the correct answer.
