E)...the participle phrase "compared...." correctly modifies "quechans" ! "compared with" is correct in this case as it points out the difference b/w the "quechans" and other natives.

E is best. Compared with is the correct idiom when you are comparing similar items to emphasize their differences.

Late but E. It avoids confusion with the pronoun "they" and uses the correct modifier.

Late reponse but E it is.

A) sounds like its the Quechans that is doing the comparing
B) where does the pronoun 'you' come from?
C) use of "they" is ambiguous
D) awkward structure
