Narrowed down to B and E. But chose E for parallelism.
Also in E more...than... is properly used.

Please correct me if I am wrong .
Thanks.

In many nations around the Pacific Rim, the so-called overseas Chinese are more powerful, wealthy, and yield more influence as any ethnic group.

A. yield more influence as any ethnic group
B. more influential as any other ethnic group
C. influential than any group ethnically
D. yield influence greater than any other ethnic group
E. influential than any other ethnic group

Sure, you are right.
The answer is E.

You can not choose B here, because:
1. If you have "more" you have to have "than" too. It is comparison.
Of course you can make comparison with "as", but then "as" has to be in the first part of the sentence.
2. We have the list: powerful, wealthy, influentional.
But "more" stands only before "powerful". And there is no "more" before "wealthy"!
So the correct use is:
more powerful, more wealthy, more influential.
or
more powerful, wealthy, influential.
not
more powerful, wealthy, more influential.

In many nations around the Pacific Rim, the so-called overseas Chinese are more powerful, wealthy, and yield more influence as any ethnic group.

A. yield more influence as any ethnic group - For Comparison, THAN is used rather than AS. It is Redundant to use MORE before Influence. Hence Incorrect.
B. more influential as any other ethnic group - For Comparison, THAN is used rather than AS. It is Redundant to use MORE before Influential.Hence Incorrect.
C. influential than any group ethnically - Changes the original intent. Hence Incorrect.
D. yield influence greater than any other ethnic group - As explained in option A. Hence Incorrect
E. influential than any other ethnic group - Correct
