I will go for 'C'

(A) Unlike the United States, Japanese unions appear reluctant to organize
US compared to Japanese unions - wrong comparsion

(B) Unlike those in the United States, Japanese unions appear reluctant to organize
Unions in US compared to Japanese unions - not parallel

(C) In Japan, unlike the United States, unions appear reluctant to organize
Yes this is it.

(D) Japanese unions, unlike the United States, appear reluctant to organize
Same as A

(E) Japanese unions, unlike those in the United States, appear reluctant about organizing
'reluctant about organizing' - is not right

A D and E are wrong (wrong comparison in A and D, reluctant about in E is unidiomatic)
between B and C, I think that C is more parallel because B should have been "unlike American ones" or something similar (with an adjective)

(C)

it is between B and E (apples to apples)

E is out because appear should be followed by an infinitive.

B should be it

A,C,D are out.
B and E, both, use the proper form of comparision but in E the idiom, reluctant about, is not correct. it should be reluctant to as in B. So go with B.

(A) Unlike the United States, Japanese unions appear reluctant to organize
- bad comparision. Compares country to union.

(B) Unlike those in the United States, Japanese unions appear reluctant to organize

(C) In Japan, unlike the United States, unions appear reluctant to organize

(D) Japanese unions, unlike the United States, appear reluctant to organize
- bad comparison

(E) Japanese unions, unlike those in the United States, appear reluctant about organizing
- bad comparison

Between (B) and (C), i prefer (B).

In (B),
Unlike those (unions) in U.S, Japanese unions appear reluctant to organize lower-paid workers

In (C)
In Japan, unlike the United States, unions appear reluctant to organize
The last part 'unions appear reluctant to organize' should stick close to Japan.

B it is.

Hi there @Wilfred,
But how do we knoe that "those" in answer choice C does not refer to Japanese unions all together instead of just unions?
Experts please advice
Cheers
