    Re: Same or different

    Look at the original sentence - it ends in "that"; so out of the alternatives which is the only one that will fit?

    Re: Same or different

    Probabely the first one .... This is the same as that ... but I am really not sure about it, because I've found several examples of usage ... This is different from that ... in Google as well.

    Ah, but option d was not "different from" but "the different from".

    So yes, #a is the correct answer.
