IMO B

the first part of the sentence is talking about vaughn clg. After that it is a case of comparison of students from both clgs.

So B

E. Vaughn College has students stronger academically than ... lets replace it in original sentence

Vaughn College has students stronger academically than Lexington ... missing 'has' ...

E - wrong comparision

B is correct

The second clause must begin with Vaughn College, which is the subject; so A, C, and D are out (note that D begins with Vaughn College's students, the college should be the subject, not the students, since we are comparing college to college).

E is wrong because it says that students are stronger than the college!

B. it is. Who got the greater number of student? Vaughn college. Thus, Vaugh college should be the subject for the second part. Leave B,E. In E, we cannot compare students with Lexington. So, B
