Go with D. Marx is a german philosopher, but he is not an idealist.

A - cast the net too wide (as long as you're an idealist philosopher, then he/she must be german)
B - Marx is not non-german
C - again, no relationship between a german idealist and a german philosopher.
E - same problem as A.

I opted for D but OA is E.
E says,
Aside from the philosopher Marx, if someone is a German, then he or she is an idealist

Here it says if someone is german does not mean he or she is also philosopher.

Can anybody clarify how come E is choice but i prefer to stick with D.

Yep E is the right answer ..
Consider this:
All German philosphers, except for Marx, are idealists.
i.e. if a philospher is german he's bound be an idealist with the exception of Marx.
In E also we are saying that aside for "philospher" Marx, if someone( implicit "philospher") is german. he'll be an idealist.

Is philosoper implicit? Does not it mean we are adding our imgination to come to the OA? It is not accepted in GMAT. Right?

I guess D should be the answer.

Okay I think I get it why OA is E.

Aside from x , y

That means we are comparing x with y that is similar things....

Hence aside from philosopher Marx, if someone(some philosopher) is.......

I'm going to stick with D. In E, I'm not convinced that talking about someone German is necessarily talking about the philosophers.

The OP got the answer choice wrong in E.

It should read

E)Aside from the philosopher Marx, if someone is a German philosopher, then he or she is an idealist



This makes E the clear winner.

I agree with "jaynayak" .. in the usage aside from X,Y ... the similarity is obvious thus ...it makes the "philospher" implicit in the sentence ..
That's why ..gonna stick with E ...
