+1 for E

Dutch economy is being compared to the 'economies of Britain, France and Germany'.... and the other criteria of comparison is the 'unemployment rate' which has remained well below that of the other three.

Here we need to make a logical comparison between the Dutch economy and the economies of the other nations listed. Therefore, we can immediately eliminate (A), (B), and (C). As for 'economy' vs. 'economies', 'economy' would suggest that Britain, France, and Germany share the same economy. This is clearly not the case, so the answer is (E).

That noted, the original poster may want to take another look at the end of the answer choices. For instance, (E) and the unemployment rate has remained
compares well with all the three other countires, despite the incorrect spelling of 'countries' is nonsensical. 'Compares' needs to be dropped and 'below' needs to follow 'well.'

Hope that helps resolve any confusion :).

E is correct.

A and C are incorrect. Dutch economy has grown faster than Britain, France and Germany (not their economy).

D is incorrect. The economy of Britain, France, and Germany suggest that these countries have single economy which is compared to Dutch economy.

B is incorrect. It is not parallel. Dutch economy has grown faster and Dutch unemployment rate has remained VS Dutch economy has grown faster and Dutch unemployment rate remaining.

pls, help

in oa E, "rate of three countries" is also illogic.

more over, in E, "and rate" is parallel to the preceding clause, NOT LOGIC

so, D can be better. if we accept D , we accept "the economy of three countries is correct? because "that of" is correct
