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) 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.

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)

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.

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

For parallelism, I discovered a pretty nice hack. Just remove one part and try the other.

Since there is so much doubt about (C), lets look at it this way:

blah blah... United States, the Union... blah blah blah (This looks definitely wrong)

blah blah.... In United States, the union... blah blah (Yup)

So C needed an in.

actually the comparison is between unions of two countries who either reluctant or not to organize low paid workers.
C is wrong because the comparison is between two countries while the non-underline part says something about unions who organize low paid workers...so it must be United states Union.
B is perfect-->its more about clear meaning
