Yes A makes perfect sense.

Unlike your friends, your bro is a strong boy.

This is perfectly fine.

Remember,

Unlike or Like just follow Noun or Noun phrase of the sentence, and these words must be paralleled logically and structurally with the words before them, and these words do not need to be the same number with the others.

A is clearly the right answer....

B, C compare scholars with conclusions.
In D, meaning gets changed.
In E subject doesn't agree with verb: mythologists---has is wrong

A seems the most probable answer.

(A) Unlike other scholars, the eminent mythologist has concluded
Correct: compares scholars with mythologist
(B) Unlike other scholars, the eminent mythologist’s conclusion
Incorrect: compares scholars with conclusion; its a wrong comparison
(C) Unlike other scholars, the eminent mythologist’s conclusion is
Incorrect: compares scholars with conclusion; its a wrong comparison
(D) Unlike those of other scholars, the eminent mythologist’s conclusions are
Incorrect: meaning is distorted.
(E) The eminent mythologists, unlike those of other scholars, has concluded
Incorrect: Subject-Verb disagreement. mythologists----has is wrong..

But the ques doesn't seem like a 700 level..... Any views?
