The key here is to identify the rule that we need " compare ..with" (since we are comparing like things). Going by this rule, you narrow down to E.

Can someone post the rule regarding "compare with" being used to compare similar things?

I thought the proper phrase was "compared to".

Any differences between "compared to" and "compared with"?

As far my knowledge goes:

"compare with" is used to identify both the similarities and the differences.
"compare to" is used to identify either the similarities or the differences between two things.

Ex:

1. In order to decide which game to play, we have to compare them with each other.

2. When Ramesh compares his old girlfriend to his new girlfriend, he points out all the ways in which they are alike.

Nope, this is not correct.

Compare to is used to compare unlike things.
Ex.

He compared his aunt to a witch, indeed she wasn't a nice person. :lol:

Compare with is used to compare alike things.

He compared his aunt with that of his friend and decided that she is not that bad after all. :lol:

So your second example is wrong, since compare with should be used there.

Yes second example given by me was wrong. I think I was :sleep

To be more precise,

"compare with" is used to identify both the similarities and the differences of like things.
"compare to" is used to identify either the similarities or the differences between two unlike things.

E. Compared with other Native Americans of the Southwest, the Quechan

the note i have from one of the forum posts is as under:

Compare with vs. Compare to

Rule 1:
Compare to compares unlike things, whereas compare with compares like things.

Rule 2:
Compare to is used to stress the resemblance. Compare with can be used to show either similarity or difference but is usually used to stress the difference.

Compare with:
To evaluate things relative to each other; for example, “I'm thinking of buying either a Honda Accord or a Toyota Camry, so I'm comparing each with the other, trying to figure out which to buy.â€
