Answer choice A and D are comparing temperature storms with the circulation of hurricane, which is wrong. The comparison must be of temperature storms with hurricane. So, A and D are eliminated. In answer choice B, plural “those” is used for the singular “circulation of hurricane”, which is wrong. So, we can eliminate B. Answer choice C lacks verb before “always”. Answer choice E has the correct structure. Hence, E is the answer.

I feel As instead of like should be the right answer. Here circulation between hurricanes and temperature storms are being compared. But Like is used to compare two nouns. Isn't the usage of like wrong in this case?

This is the comparison in option E:

The circulation of hurricanes, like that of temperate storms, is always counterclockwise north of the equator...

The comparison is between the circulation of hurricanes and the circulation of temperate storms.

My bad, yes its the comparison between the cirulation of huricanes vs circulation of temperature storms. Which I think is comparing the action (circulation) between two things. If so, isnt As a better option over like

The as/like call is not as straightforward as "nouns vs. actions", but we may not need to get into that, as circulation is a noun, not a verb.

Generally, we shouldn't worry about whether a noun implies an action. Even if we feel that a noun implies an action, it still remains a noun. :)

A) Like temperate storms, the circulation of hurricanes is always counterclockwise north of the equator and then clockwise
B) Like those of temperate storms, the circulation of hurricanes is always counterclockwise when it is north of the equator and clockwise when
C) The circulation of hurricanes, as it is with temperate storms, always counterclockwise north of the equator and clockwise
D) As temperate storms are, hurricanes' circulation is always counterclockwise north of the equator and clockwise when
E)The circulation of hurricanes, like that of temperate storms, is always counterclockwise north of the equator and clockwise


Option A is wrong because it compares "temperate storms" with "the circulation of hurricanes".

Option B is wrong because it uses "those of " to refer to "the circulation".

Option C is wrong because there is no main verb in the sentence.

Option D is wrong because it compares "temperate storms" with "hurricanes' circulation".

Option E is the correct option.

Please give me kudo s if you liked my explanation.
