To add to the woes, what is wrong with 'in contrast to' in C ? It is a well accepted idiom
in GMAT.

C-- It should be--- In contrast with,

E-- As contrasted as(wrong Idiom)

Hence, B

IMO C - the GMAT does not draw a distinction between "in contrast to" and "in contrast with".Whats the OA and the source?

Source is Jumbo Test. They were offering free tests but not answers and explanations. That is why I posted this question here.

B is the answer. A and B are the same but B is more precise so that is the right answer.

@abhi47 - A & B are not same. A has incorrect idiom.
As contrasted with ... - is NOT a valid idiom in GMAT. B is correct.

Btw, C also has perfect construction. In contrast to - is a valid and acceptable idiom in GMAT.
Cheers!
