Let me cut in!
Help me with this exercise relate to comparison!

A. much far expensive than
B. as much expensive as
C. a bit less expensive
D. not nearly as expensive as.
Help me choose an answer and explain why the others can not be chosen!
Do not cut in. Instead, start a new thread when you have a new topic. I have split your post off from that thread, which has taken more of my time.
Now: First, which answer do you choose, Frenzyduonga, and why?
Thanks for your helping!
My answer is D, I think there is no grammar mistake here. but key is C,
You are right: both C and D are good answers. The real problem is with the original sentence, which would be much more natural with ‘this’ instead of ‘the’.
C is incorrect unless you have omitted a word from the original text. It does not contain ‘than’ which is needed here.
D is the only correct answer.
Yipes! Right you are, BN. I read right over an imaginary ‘than’.
This shirt is a bit less expensive than that one.
I guessed as much. The brain fills in what the eyes don’t see sometimes.
