imo A

compares two actions - giving of polio vaccines with mass dietary change. Don't think "like" works here as its used to compare only nouns

Although I am not 100% sure about A as the idiom should be Just as X, so Y (not sure if we can let go of "so")

imo A i am not convinced we need plural "metabolisms". A states "species of dinosaur", i'm guessing this is a typo. C would still be wrong because "more like those of..." will be incorrect: idiom more X than Y. sentence should say: more like a........ than a....... or: more like those of a......than...

imo B

if more women are entering 2nd marriage in their 30s and 40s, then its likely that their first marriage was much earlier.

imo C

1. Micron 401 during a crash works VERY slowly
2. An error message can be triggered by a crash due to electrical power surge.

IMO E example: Total seniors = 100 so in 1997 80% passed i.e. 80 so 20 failed in 1998 the number of seniors who passed dropped by 10% than what it was in 1997 so seniors who passed in 1998 = 72 seniors who failed in 1998 = ??? (could be anything) so basically if the pass % is higher in 1998 than in ...
