A. Like many entertainers, members of an advocacy association of musicians said that they no longer wanted to be tax evaders Sentence makes sense. No glaring mistake so far. Let's check out the others sentences for mistakes

B. Like many other entertainers, tax evaders and members of an advocacy association of musicians said that they no longer wanted to be that changes the original meaning of the sentence

C. Members of an advocacy association of musicians said that they no longer wanted to be tax evaders like many entertainers Implies that "many entertainers" are tax evades and changes the original meaning

D. Members of an advocacy association of musicians said that they no longer wanted to be like tax evaders and many other entertainers Changes the original meaning of the sentence

E. Like many other entertainers, members of an advocacy association of musicians said that they no longer wanted to be tax evaders Sentence makes sense.

The only difference between A and E is the word "other". I would go with A.

Hello WIKI, I would go with E since members of an advocacy association of musician are part of entertainers so in E, which says "Like many other entertainers" is better.

E. Like many other entertainers, members of an advocacy association of musicians said that they no longer wanted to be tax evaders


members of an advocacy association of musicians are also entertainers, so when they are compared , they should be compared using other (comparison with other entertainers), hence other plays an important role. Keeping that one change apart the sentence is grammatically correct and follows all rules. E solves that problem

A. Like many entertainers, members of an advocacy association of musicians said that they no longer wanted to be tax evaders -->should be "many other entertainers" because "members of an advocacy association of musicians" are also "entertainers"

B. Like many other entertainers, tax evaders and members of an advocacy association of musicians said that they no longer wanted to be that --> meaning change: "many other entertainers" is compared w/ "members of an advocacy association of musicians"

C. Members of an advocacy association of musicians said that they no longer wanted to be tax evaders like many entertainers --> "like many entertainers" should be close to the noun it compares

D. Members of an advocacy association of musicians said that they no longer wanted to be like tax evaders and many other entertainers--> same as C

E. Like many other entertainers, members of an advocacy association of musicians said that they no longer wanted to be tax evaders --> correct
