    I am puzzled utterly by the two questions ,and I need your help.

    There are 2 questions:
    The first:
    The lenses in an optical microsope bend the light passing through a specimen to form an image of that specimen that is much larger______actually viewed.
    A. than it B.than the one
    I chose A but the correct is B ,I am confused with it and I don't understand why B is suitable for this sentence instead of A .


    The second:
    ________Sarah Orne Jewett, a nineteenth-century writer, read widely in her family's extensive library.
    A . The little formal education that she received B. Although she received little formal education
    The correct is B,but I think both of A and B are all right.Therefore,I hope someone to tell me why A is unsuitable.

    I would appreciate it if someone could help me about this tow questions.

    A gives us no link to the main clause following it. We need a word such as 'despite' before it to give that link.

    The correct answer is B. B says that the image is larger than the real specimen. A would have the image viewing the image. It makes no sense.

    Firstly ,I must express my gratitude for your reply,but I still consider there is a equation between " The little formal education that she received " and " The little formal education as she received" .Would you please allocate one minute to explain my new query, thanks.
