(C) parallel the multitudes of Americans afflicted with illogical comparison - symptoms to Americans
(D) parallels those of the multitudes of Americans afflicted from afflicted from - incorrect idiom
(E) parallels that of the multitudes of Americans afflicted from that is singular- require those. afflicted from is incorrect idiom
