  • SC-282/1000: Even though Béla Bartók’s music has proved less popular

    282. Even though Béla Bartók’s music has proved less popular than Igor Stravinsky’s and less influential than Arnold Schonberg’s, it is no less important.

    (A) Stravinsky’s and less influential than Arnold Schonberg’s, it
    (B) Stravinsky’s and less influential than Arnold Schonberg’s, he
    (C) Stravinsky’s is and less influential than Arnold Schonberg’s is, it
    (D) Stravinsky and not as influential as Arnold Schonberg, he
    (E) Stravinsky and not as influential as Arnold Schonberg, it

    Solution:

    Pronoun + Comparison

    B and D can be eliminated for using ‘he’ for ‘music’.
    C fails to maintain parallelism in comparison by the use of ‘is’.
    D and E can be eliminated for comparing “Béla Bartók’s music” with ‘Stravinsky’ and ‘Arnold Schonberg’ rather than their music.
    A is the best choice.
