    Another bad question as it stands. Are you sure there is not a verb missing where I have put the asterisk?

    Have you missed out a word in the main sentence? If not, then the sentence can't make any sense with any of those choices.

    True, but I'd have put the asterisk in a different position! We clearly think there are different words missing.

    Would you have put it after 'areas'? If so, I can agree with that possibility.

    No, I'd have put it after the first blank space, before the word "most".

    I hadn't seen that possibility, but I can now.

    I can see the possibility of yours too. I am somewhat suspicious of the original question though, claiming that the given answer is A. I've seen some pretty ropey test questions on this forum but the chances of a test author believing that "...unlike those what characterize the upper strata of society" is correct is somewhat far-fetched. Is there a chance that rather a lot of these test questions are being posted in this format to get us to give the correct answer? Hmmmmm.
