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.

"many others of his generation of Native American leaders" should modify Joseph Brant by touch rule. Hence, we eliminate B and E.
Comparing nouns use "like" instead of "as". Eliminate D and E.

You will notice that the underlined sentence is followed by: "born into an Iroquois community and instructed in traditional Iroquois ways, he also received an education from English speaking teachers." If we connect "was" in front of this, the sentence will become to main clause and the combination would be a FRAGMENT.

Question :- "As with many others " is this is correct ? any possibility that this can be used anywhere from GMAT perspective ?

Yes.. can be used.

Consider the comparison as X, Y

It is possible that each of the parallel elements X and Y contains a prepositional phrase starting with with.

Example:

As with many others the mysterious event happened in the past few days, with me it happened yesterday night.

Living in two worlds is actually correct since it modifies "Native American Leaders", not Joseph.

Broooosss

I dont understand why A is the correct answer choice.
" ; " is used to connect only independent clauses , whereas n=in the question the second is not a IC

Like is used for comparison -

Like many others , Joseph Brant

 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.

Further notice the last part of the sentence -

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.

The green part is an independent clause -

 he also received an education from English-speaking teachers.

The independent clause is joined to a dependent clause in red

born into an Iroquois community and instructed in traditional Iroquois ways

Thus we have -

[ Dependent Clause ] + [,] [ Independent Clause ] = [ [color=#0000ff]Independent Clause ][/color]

Then we have an independent clause " Like many others...........lived in two worlds " joined to another independent clause using a semi colon

[Independent Clause] + [;] + [Independent Clause]

Hope this helps.....
