E is best. "comparison" seems to indicate a logical relationship beween 2 things.. I think you need comparing to indicate which of the choices are better... I may be wrong...

I would have selected A, because i feel "compare to" is more apt than "compare with"...

I would pick "A" for the same reason...


From my notes:
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€

It's (C) for me. I read the sentence as:

Many investors base their choice between bonds and stocks on comparing bond yields to the dividends available on common stocks.

You can't base your choce on comparing something with another, rather you base your choice by comparing something with another. (By is needed, so E is out)

I can base my choice on comparisons of something with another, so, that's why i choose (C)

E for me.

First off... B and D can be eliminated as between is more appropriate when two objects are being compared. Among is used when three or more objects are being compared.

A is out - please refer to Vithal's explanations
Between C and E, E is more concise. I am not sure what's wrong with C, but "on comparisons of" sounds awkward.

E is the safest choice.
