D. "Like Germany’s wines, wineries in upstate New York"... wines are being compared to wineries. Eliminate D.

E. "Similar to those from Germany"..."those" doesn't have an antecedent. Eliminate E

B. Awkward but grammatically correct and all the comparisons are right.

Wineries in G, like wineries in NYC, create rich, full-bodied wines.

Wineries in both countries are compared.

(A) Like the wines from Germany, also an area with a temperate climate, wineries in upstate New York create rich, full-bodied wines. Wines are compared with wineries.

(B) Wineries in upstate New York create rich, full-bodied wines similar to the wines from Germany, which, like upstate New York, is an area with a temperate
climate. Correct choice. Wines from G are compared with wines from NYC. 'Which' refers correctly to Germany.

(C) Wineries in upstate New York create rich, full-bodied wines similar to Germany’s,which, like upstate New York, is an area with a temperate climate. 'Which' incorrectly refers to 'Germany's wines'

(D) Like Germany’s wines, wineries in upstate New York, also an area with a temperate climate, create rich, full-bodied wines. G wines are compared with NYC wineries.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



As it stands the sentence implies that the comparison is between wines and wineries. This is not the case. You can compare wine with wine or wineries with wineries. Choices A and D have misplaced modifiers. The placement of ‘which’ next to ‘Germany’s’ in C is incorrect. ‘Which’ refers to Germany not Germany’s wines. It is not clear to what the ‘those’ in E refers. Grammatically it could refer to the wines or the wineries. Choice B is the correct answer.
