E it is. The sentence is comparing YJ to the HB.

A is wordy
B leaves you hanging: honeybee's...what?
C Unlike the sting of the honeybee, we are comparing insects not stings!
Between D and E, opt for E b/c it is less wordy.

You have to compare two parallel entities.

Unlike A, B is ****.

OA is E.

I have chosen E as the answer:

A. This answer choice is not idiomatic. Also, I noticed the use of simple past tense for "contrasted," which is not correct.

B. This breaks parallelism because we are using the possessive word "honeybee's" and comparing it to the non-possessive word "yellow jacket."

C. We are comparing the sting to the yellow jacket. Logically, this is incorrect.

D. At first I wasn't sure what "that" referred to, but after a deeper look, it appears to refer to the sting. The word "that" would essentially make this answer choice the exact same as C.

E. Clearly compares the honeybee to the yellow jacket itself. So this is logically parallel. It is also grammatically parallel because we are comparing a noun to a noun.

You want to compare the honeybee to the yellow jacket

As contrasted with the , the yellow jacket can sting repeatedly without dying and carries a potent venom that can cause intense pain.

(B) In contrast to the honeybee’s

B compares the "honeybee’s" where the " 's" is a possessive form; so you are comparing the "honeybee’s (possessive noun)" too the "yellow jacket".

Hope the difference is clear
