    Its C, as we are using compare to between two things that are not structurally equivalent say
    Zeena can be compared to a blazing sun
    whereas we use compared with for structurally similar thing;
    Hence D, E out.
    B --> s-v agreement
    btw A & C-- >
    located farther from the center of maximum winds
    reflects the correct meaning of the statement

    I am not sure between A and C..

    I do not understand what is 'center of maximum winds' in C
    and "broad zone of maximum winds"

    I think center of => should be with singular..
    My pick is A..

    A: broad zone of maximum winds located farther from the center
    C: broad zone located farther from the center of maximum winds

    I eliminated C because phrase center of maximum winds looks wierd.

    Its not clear that the modifier of broad zone is located farther or located farther from the center
    Thanks,
    Madhur

    I agree with madhur ahuja for eliminating C.

    C.with tropical cyclone systems, subtropical cyclone systems have a relatively broad zone(of what??) located farther from the center of maximum winds, and typically have

    IMO A

    the oa is A

    here is the explanation why C is wrong
    (C) The choice moves the phrase "located farther from the center" to a new position, which alters the meaning of the sentence. The original meaning states that the winds are located farther from the center of the storm. This sentence states that the zone is located farther from the winds, which is nonsensical.
