A. like should be used to compare "residents of the Southeast" to "Northeasterners"

C. would have been correct if it read:
as Northeasterners do

D. awkward

E. we need contrast. whereas is incorrect usage.

I would say ^ A ^

".. the same .. as " is the correct usage and I think we should use it here. So, B, D and E are out.

>>"whereas" in E is also a wrong usage here

Between A and C, there is only the difference of verb " share & have". As I dont see anything wrong with A, I will leave it as correct.

It's a close call between ( 'call between', is it a proper idiom?) A & B

I will pick B as 'share' x 'with' y seems to be correct

Confused b/w B and C. A is out since the correct phrase is 'share... with'. Will choose B since sharing the heritage sounds better than having the heritage.

Tough Call between B and C.
Will go for C.
In B although ' share....with ' is correct ,I dont like the ' because.....with '.

OA is C.

I chose "B" as well.

I guess "have same hertitage as" wins over "share same heritage with" ?

thoughts?
