I would go with A

The only other one which comes close is: (B) Like many others of his generation of Native American leaders, living in two worlds, Joseph Brant was

but here "living in two worlds" is misplaced, if it would have been "Joseph Brant, living in two worlds, was", then I would have chosen that.

Agree with A.

B and D has a modifier issue.

'Like' should be used to compare nouns or things.
'As' shoudl be used in a comparison involving clauses. 'As' can also be used in comparisons that us the construction 'as....as'.

I think B, C and D are out because of comma and "was" which alters //ism between born and instructed. Only A and E are possible choices but "another" in E is awkward.

So A.

"many others of his generation of Native American leaders" should modify Joseph Brant by touch rule. Hence, we eliminate B and E.
Comparing nouns use "like" instead of "as". Eliminate D and E.

You will notice that the underlined sentence is followed by: "born into an Iroquois community and instructed in traditional Iroquois ways, he also received an education from English speaking teachers." If we connect "was" in front of this, the sentence will become to main clause and the combination would be a FRAGMENT.

A is the Correct answer.
