C for me.

B and D use among - which is wrong

C correctly uses comparison with.

Choose among A, C, E. Still unsure about compare to and with. Now add comparison on top. :confused:

(C).
First we have a 2/3 split because it has to be between since our choices are stocks and bonds.
Out of A, C and E, C is the best because you can base one thing on another thing, in this case you base on comparison NOT comparing

To me, (E) looks the best.

usage of "among" is not correct, ruling out (B) and (D)

comparing with is correct because two different things - "bond yields" and "dividends on common stoks" are being compared.

(C) uses "comparisons of .. " which I feel is inappropriate.

I will go with â€˜Eâ€™
It shoud be â€˜betweenâ€™ so â€˜Bâ€™ and â€˜Dâ€™ can be eliminated
A â€“ compared to is wrong to compare like items
C â€“ on comparisons look awkward
