i have a bit confusion in the following two sentences. can u give me the correct answer from the options given

1. (A) We are a UK based consultancy firm
(B) We are an UK based consultancy firm

2. (A) Mastercraft has revolutionized software writing in much the same way as automation revolutionized factory production
(B) Mastercraft has revolutionized software writing in much the same way that automation revolutionized factory production


My take -->

1 --> U in UK pronounced as "you", hence A
2 --> Confusing.. {wouldn't have marked anything in CAT }

Senetence A would have been fine if a "had" had been interspersed.
Mastercraft has revolutionized software writing in much the same way as automation had revolutionized factory production.
--- Sometimes these omissions are legal sometimes not... (Can anyone help with this..)
Sentence B seems slightly better but is an odd way of saying it.
