D


D cannot be the ans because there's a comparison problem. you cannot compare rates with a group
The rates of entrepreneurship ... exceed every other immigrant group

IMO C

C & E are the contenders & E can be ruled out because "rates" should have "exceed" i.e. a plural verb

Between C and E
E fails the SV agreement

C is perfect.

Should be C since it compares the rate of entrepreneurship in one group with others by using "Those".

Mideast immigrants’ rates of entrepreneurship exceed virtually every other immigrant group in the increasingly diverse United States economy.
A. Mideast immigrants’ rates of entrepreneurship exceed - rates are compared with immigrant group. so wrong
B. Mideast immigrants are exhibiting rates of entrepreneurship exceeding - rates cannot exceed immigrant group itself but should exceed rates of immigrant group. Again illogical comparison. So wrong
C. Immigrants from the Mideast exhibit rates of entrepreneurship exceeding those of - correct comparison; rates of Mideast vs rates (those) of every other immigrant group
D. The rates of entrepreneurship in immigrants from the Mideast exceed - rates are compared with immigrant group. so wrong
E. The rates of Mideast immigrants’ entrepreneurship exceeds those of - comparison correct, but the verb (exceed) doesn't match the plural 'rates', so wrong

Grateful for kudos if you like the explanation

I will go with C.

A- rates exceed other immigrant.. Wrong comparison
B- rate exceeding other immigrant... Wrong comparison
D. rates of entrepreneurship ....exceed other immigrant.. Wrong comparison
E. The rates of Mideast immigrants' entrepreneurship exceeds -- Wrong SV agreement

C exhibit rates of entrepreneurship exceeding those of other immigrant.... rates compared to rates of other immigrant group...

C is correct

Though C has an awkward construction, all other options are unsound. I vote for C.

I chose C...better construction as immigrants from the mideast is appropiate rather than mideast immigrants.

Except C in all the comparisons rates have been compared to immigrants group which is wrong.
Hence C.

Comparing rates..."those of" is correctly used... .
So, A, B and D are eliminated.
In E, "The rates of" is pl and "exceeds" is sl, so, SV error. eliminated E.

The best choice is C.
