Option A -INCORRECT. This response here looks too ''academic'' and lacking in flow. It is logical to an extent but lacks a bit of flexibility . ,More so, that the option looks similar to the question without an iota of difference. Quite unacceptable. Option B - CORRECT. Here, the transition from the positive position to the negative position held by the theological school of thought is seamless and breathtaking. one thing is certain here, the author has got an eye for sweet, less ambiguous use of words. Option C - INCORRECT. Here, the is too basic emphasis which have rendered the message tautological. One is the adjective ''Much'' which describes an excessive situation . Second is ''too'' which describes same situation of excess. Option D - INCORRECT. The orientation of the sentence shouldn't have created unnecessary hindrance to this option but it's slightly INCORRECT because of the reportage which should have followed the Positive-Negative order. Option E - INCORRECT. Here we have the same situation as in option C and D above. A critical look at the aforementioned options will give you a better outlook and understanding about the option E. • 1 Hour Free BEAT THE GMAT EXCLUSIVE Available with Beat the GMAT members only code • Free Practice Test & Review How would you score if you took the GMAT Available with Beat the GMAT members only code • Free Trial & Practice Exam BEAT THE GMAT EXCLUSIVE Available with Beat the GMAT members only code • 5 Day FREE Trial Study Smarter, Not Harder Available with Beat the GMAT members only code • Magoosh Study with Magoosh GMAT prep Available with Beat the GMAT members only code • Free Veritas GMAT Class Experience Lesson 1 Live Free Available with Beat the GMAT members only code • Get 300+ Practice Questions 25 Video lessons and 6 Webinars for FREE Available with Beat the GMAT members only code • Award-winning private GMAT tutoring Register now and save up to$200
