1. "Your opinion is quite different from that of the authorities."
  2. "Your opinion is quite different from it of the authorities."
  • To start, your second sentence is very awkward at best. (I'm not convinced it's technically ungrammatical, but it's certainly very close to being so from a pragmatic point of view. I'm comparing it to It was she of the Valkyries, which has the same construction and sounds better, if still being a bit odd.) Jan 31 '19 at 4:01

The second one isn't good, but the first is okay. Possibly:

Your opinion is quite different than that of the authorities
