A falsely compares lives of Pushkin, Gogol~ to Chekhov.
B compares Chekhov to the other biographies. wrong!

C correctly compares the life of Chekhov to the lives of the subjects (people).
D Chekhov and his life? unlike that of biographies? This doesn't even make sense.
E is incorrect because 'the life of Chekhov' is compared to the life of biographies'

A. Unlike the lives of Pushkin,Gogol,Tolstoi and Detoevski,subjects of other Troyat biographies, Chekhov belongs -lives compared to Chekhov
B. Chekhnov, unlike the other Troyat biographies of Pushkin,Gogol,Tolstoi, and Dostoevski, belongs - Chekhov compared to biographies
C. The life of Chekhnov,unlike the lives of the subjects of other Troyat biographies Puskin,Gogol,Tolstol and Dostoevski,belongs - correct, The life of Chekhnov is compared to the lives of the subjects of other Troyat biographies Puskin,Gogol,Tolstol
D. chekov and his life, unlike that of the other Troyat biographies-Puskin,Gogol,Tolstoi, and Dostoevski,belong - funny but seems that chekhov and his life are separate things, that is singular which is wrong, becauыe lives of Puskin,Gogol,Tolstoi,and Dostoevski are compared
E. The life of Chekov , unlike that of other Troyat biographies of Puskin,Gogol,Tolstoi,and Dostoevski,belongs - that is singular which is wrong, becauыe lives of Puskin,Gogol,Tolstoi,and Dostoevski are compared

that - singular
those - prular.
