I would go with A

The only other one which comes close is: (B) Like many others of his generation of Native American leaders, living in two worlds, Joseph Brant was

but here "living in two worlds" is misplaced, if it would have been "Joseph Brant, living in two worlds, was", then I would have chosen that.

Agree with A.

B and D has a modifier issue.

'Like' should be used to compare nouns or things.
'As' shoudl be used in a comparison involving clauses. 'As' can also be used in comparisons that us the construction 'as....as'.

I think B, C and D are out because of comma and "was" which alters //ism between born and instructed. Only A and E are possible choices but "another" in E is awkward.

So A.

Lets discuss ! After you get the answer please explain what's wrong with the others.

Is "as with" idiomatically correct here? If so, why?

According to me,

A and E cannot fit in, since ";" should separate 2 sentences which can stay alone. Here second part cannot stay alone.
C looks fine. But, "Like many another" seems awkward.
Among B and D the only difference is usage of "Like" and "As with". Now "like" should be used to compare people or things or nouns. Here we are not comparing the people rather we are comparing a clause of "people living in two different worlds". Hence it should be "As with".
I would go with D.
Please let us know the OA and explanation for the same.

Good Question.
IMO A

'many others' sounds good than many another.. C & E out.
Like to compare nouns.

A looks perfect and is free from modifier errors.

Correct me if am wrong.

Awesome ! Thanks the OA is A.

As pointed out in this post B and D have modifier issue. "living in two worlds" starts modifying the "Native American leaders".

Among A, C and E. The unidiomatic usage eliminates C and E. "many another" is wrong

So my first attempt was wrong. But, just wanted to clarify one thing here. Is the placement of ";" proper here. Can the second statement stay alone? I think I made the mistake because of that confusion also with the usage of "like". So here "Like" is comparing with people and Joseph Brant. Hence, that should be fine. But, could you please clarify about the usage of ";"?

Indeed. Lets analyze option A

Like many others of his generation of Native American leaders, Joseph Brant lived in two worlds; born into an Iroquois community and instructed in traditional Iroquois ways, he also received an education from English-speaking teachers.

Like many others of his generation of Native American leaders, Joseph Brant ---> phrase modifier, noun1 + clause1
born into an Iroquois community and instructed in traditional Iroquois ways, he ---> phrase modifier, pronoun + clause2

clause1 and clause2 are independent sentences BUT related (he in second sentence refers to Brant) - so they should be joined by semi-colon.

I did not like option A for the below reasons. Can someone please comment on where I am wrong in my understanding

(1) Like many others of his generation of Native American leaders, Joseph Brant, - with 'Like' the comparison should be done only with 'Joseph Brant'. But the sentnece has 'Joseph Brant lived in two worlds'

So the correct structure will be:

(2) As many others of his generation of Native American leaders did, Joseph Brant lived in two worlds


Like many others of his generation of Native American leaders, Joseph Brant lived in two worlds; born into an Iroquois community and instructed in traditional Iroquois ways, he also received an education from English-speaking teachers.

(A) Like many others of his generation of Native American leaders, Joseph Brant lived in two worlds;

IMO A.

We don't need "As" here.. We need like...
"As" is used to compare actions or clauses..
"Like" is used to compare nouns.. just as discussed in this sentence..

Both sentences starting with As are poorly constructed, One another in E, and no clear referent in D
Only A is clear
