Normally you "share something with someone"......I go with B.

B is correct

X shares the same ethnic heritage with Y
C would have been correct if it was of the form:
X has the same ethnic heritage as that of Y

'Share hertiage with' is the right idiomatic usage. Even I choose B when i read the sentence, like all others.

BUT, the sentence doesnt talk about 'sharing heritage with', instead it is talking about a subtle comparing of the heritage with the word 'as'. No wonder OA is C and all of us are nicely mislead :-)

nice one. kpadma, if possible underline ur question, so that we silly guys wont make much error in a uniform manner :-)

Thanks buddy.

I see your point ... good catch

But Is the following correct usage?
many residents of the Southeast do not have the same ethnic heritage as Northeasterners

Based on my knowledge I thought the correct english usage is
EITHER
many residents of the Southeast do not have the same ethnic heritage as Northeasterners do
OR
many residents of the Southeast do not have the same ethnic heritage like Northeasterners

Correct me if I am missing something ....
