(A) parallel that of the multitudes of Americans with;----- Parallel that is wrong; it should be --- parallel those--- since symptoms is plural

(B) Parallel those of the multitudes of Americans afflicted with--- correct choice--- use of proper pronoun ------those -- and correct idiom of Americans afflicted with

(C) parallel the multitudes of Americans afflicted with --- wrong comparison; symptoms are compared with multitudes


(D) parallels those of the multitudes of Americans afflicted from--- 1. Parallels is wrong SV error afflicted from is wrong idiom; afflicted with a or suffering from are right expressions


(E) parallels that of the multitudes of Americans afflicted from --- parallels is wrong – SV error; parallels that sworn – the same error as in A.

(A) parallel that of the multitudes of Americans with that corresponds to singular. Symptoms is plural - require those
(B) parallel those of the multitudes of Americans afflicted with CORRECT!!! uses plural - those and correct idiom - afflicted with
(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

IMO, answer is B
