    24) The inhabitants of Somalia greeted the measures outlawing polygamy with a similar defiance that welcomed the prohibition of alcohol in the United States in the nineteen-twenties.
    a. same
    b. a similar defiance which welcomed
    c. a similar defiance to what welcomed
    d. a defiance similar to that which welcomed
    e. the same defiance welcoming


    the answer's D. I kind of understand why D is correct, but I don't understand why A is grammatically incorrect. I got this question from one of our downloadable notes and I still wasn't clear from the explanation.

    Thanks.
