    答案是 D 的原因是 , greater by far than the diversity used by Europeans.是一個形容詞片語 ( 由形容詞子句簡化而來的 ) 也就是說它原本是 , which is greater by far than the diversity used by Europeans.而其中的 used by Europeans 是過去分詞片語 , 也是由形容詞子句的簡化而來的全部還原即為 , which is greater by far than the diversity which is used by Europeans.答案 C 不正確是因為 (1) the greatest 不可接 the diversity ( 因為此兩各有冠詞的名詞在文法上無法連  結) (2) by far 在這裡指 - 比至今為止在歐洲使用的語言更多樣化 (並不是指最高級的意思 , by far 雖然常配合最高級使用 , 但並非絕對 , 本句就是最好的例子)

    by far有時也可以和比較級一起使用

    我想是因為這句只有拿美國人和歐洲人做比較而以,所以才用比較級而不用最高級,提供你參考~
