Lexis - I am not sure whether "those of virtually" is correct. Rest all choices have bigger flaws. POE works well in this case.

C for me as well. E was tempting, but then I spotted 'rates' and 'exceeds'. Since rates is plural, 'exceed' should be used.

A, B,D --->Wrong ---> comparing the rates with group

between C & E
E -- rates not agree with exceeds.

I pick C

I see that C has some other problem.

Immigrants from the Mideast exhibit rates of entrepreneurship exceeding those of virtually every other immigrant group in the increasingly divers United States economy.

those(plural) doesn't agree with every(singlular). Those must be replaced by that in C.

Here "those" refers to the "rates". Nothing's with the "every"...

C is the correct answer because we must compare groups of imigrants.

If "those" refers to the "rates", then "every" must be replaced by "all"

Immigrants from the Mideast exhibit rates of entrepreneurship exceeding those of "all other immigrant groups" in the increasing divers United States economy.

If you reverse C, it will sound like :

The rate of entrepreneurship of every other immigrant group in United States is smaller than those of the immigrants from the Mideast.

The rate of entrepreneurship of every other immigrant group in United States is singular. So,
we need "that" and not "those" in C. Do you agree?
