had to see a prev post

AB misplaced modifier
C "those in" should be "those of"
D seems to be wrong because "difficult" modifies the phrase "unlike in most warbler species'

E seems to be the right answer by POE.

Now my question is Aren't we comparing warblers and species in choice E ?

Blue-winged warblers are unlike most species of warbler in that it is very difficult to tell the male and female apart. [/b]

usage of distinguish looks weird.

"it is very difficult to distinguish between x and y"
"it is very difficult to distinguish x from y"

are examples of correct usage.

C has it wrong.
Unlike X, Y and Z are very difficult to distinguish.

Doesnt that strike you as wrong ?

My understanding is we are comparing "blue-winged warblers" with "most species of warblers" ..Why are you ignoring "of warbler" part of "most species?

Btw, Now my question is aren't we comparing warblers and species in choice E ?

Idioms is "compare with" in such cases right? You are using "compare ...and .." .. You've been caught!
