(D) Unlike that of the honeybee
(E) Unlike the honeybee


E it is. The sentence is comparing YJ to the HB.

A is wordy
B leaves you hanging: honeybee's...what?
C Unlike the sting of the honeybee, we are comparing insects not stings!
Between D and E, opt for E b/c it is less wordy.

You have to compare two parallel entities.

Unlike A, B is ****.

OA is E.

I have chosen E as the answer:

A. This answer choice is not idiomatic. Also, I noticed the use of simple past tense for "contrasted," which is not correct.

B. This breaks parallelism because we are using the possessive word "honeybee's" and comparing it to the non-possessive word "yellow jacket."

C. We are comparing the sting to the yellow jacket. Logically, this is incorrect.

D. At first I wasn't sure what "that" referred to, but after a deeper look, it appears to refer to the sting. The word "that" would essentially make this answer choice the exact same as C.

E. Clearly compares the honeybee to the yellow jacket itself. So this is logically parallel. It is also grammatically parallel because we are comparing a noun to a noun.

You want to compare the honeybee to the yellow jacket

As contrasted with the , the yellow jacket can sting repeatedly without dying and carries a potent venom that can cause intense pain.

(B) In contrast to the honeybee’s

B compares the "honeybee’s" where the " 's" is a possessive form; so you are comparing the "honeybee’s (possessive noun)" too the "yellow jacket".

Hope the difference is clear

Comparison
non underlined sentence talk about yellow jacket. so we need honey bee in underlined part. only E makes that clear comparison.
Best Choice: E

A wrong idiom As contrasted with --> In contrast to.
B honeybee's wrong we need honey bee.
C sting is compared to yellow jacket wrong
D that of? ambiguous wrong

Chose E for the best comparison. In A the wrong idiom is used.

why A is wrong?

"as" is used to show time relation. This time relation is not logic inhere

"as" is "in the same way as".

in the same way as Jacket is contrasted with honeybee, the jacket can sting

not logic.

I searched several forums and the answer was idiom issue. So I don't recommend you to try to understand it. When I first read the sentence, it did not sound right for me, either.

A and E seemed to be the correct answers. However, GMAT only considers the best response. Hence, E is correct here. A and E are correct grammatically, but you must choose E to get credit

(A) As contrasted with the honeybee – incorrect comparison expression “As contrasted with”. either use "In comparison to" or "Compared with"
(B) In contrast to the honeybee’s – compared entities not logically parallel (honeybee’s and yellow jacket)
(C) Unlike the sting of the honeybee – compared entities not logically parallel (sting of honeybee and yellow jacket)
(D) Unlike that of the honeybee – compared entities not logically parallel (that of honeybee and yellow jacket), no antecedent for “that”
(E) Unlike the honeybee - correct

This is comparison case. Yellow jacket is an animal , then must be compared to another animal > Eliminate B, C, D
Answer E has idioms Unlike X , Y . So, the answer is E

Hi Expert,
I'm little bit confused about the structure of this sentence. As far I know if we use ‘unlike’ in the sentence, then it gives the opposite meaning of the specific noun.
If I say:
Unlike Robert, Mr. Smith is a (…………………..). In the bracket, I’ve to put something, which is not owned by Robert.
Example:
Unlike Robert, Mr. Smith is a (doctor).
>>>The sentence implies that Robert is not a doctor.
In the original sentence of this question, it says:
Unlike the honeybee, the yellow jacket can sting repeatedly without dying and carries a potent venom that can cause intense pain.
Now, we can separate this sentence with different parts.

1) The yellow jacket can sting repeatedly without dying.
This part says that “The honeybee can’t sting repeatedly without dying”. Is it true for honeybee, expert?

2) The yellow jacket carries a potent venom.
This part says that “The honeybee doesn’t carry a potent venom”. Is it true for honeybee, expert?
Thank you all.
