A?
B. Comparing courage with Rosa Parks
C.Comparing courage with Rosa Parks
D. Comparison is ligical. But 'for refusing' changes the meaning of the sentece and awkward.
E. like or unlike is better for expressing the meaning 'similar to'

In my opinion double -ve is correct here because all other choices are odd. I was about to select D but realized that "For refusing..." makes the sentence dubious as reader can not understand whether "For refusing..." applies to Jackie Robinson or Rosa Parks.
Comparision in all other options (B, C & D) is wrong.

Any expert comments!

I strongly agree to option "A"

like a,b,c not always means unlike d to z (is true in specific scope)

so, not unlike d to z is not always like a,b,c !

Double negative= positive. ~not unlike~ conveys the same meaning as ~like~

(A) is correct and grammatically fine.

Why not E though ?


because E says that the courage of Parks and whomever else was exactly the same and not 'similar'
