B.
The meaning of the sentence commands that we be after "share with".
A seems to be grammatically correct, but would not make sense in the context of the sentence.

thanks OA is B.

I chose B but went to A because of idiom Same X as Y. But in that we should have a action verb after NE (as icandy mentioned).....

We can use as when we compare action

So, as icandy rightly points out, if we add 'do' then we compare an action to an action.

Guys this is a 1000SC quest. with ans as C but popular ans. seems to be B..

D and E are clearly out.

Toss is between A,B,C could somebody pls explain in detail?
The major confusion seems to be whether One shares a heritage/background as someone else, or one has the same background/heritage as someone else.

B for me.

"share X with Y" is the correct idiom.

Other options have 'as' which demands 'do' after 'Northeastners'.

IMO C

As per http://www.urch.com/forums/gmat-sentenc ... 61-sc.html Also C

One doesn't share a heritage/background as someone else, One has the same background/heritage as someone else.
"C" is the only choice which uses "....have the same ethnic heritage as...."
It seems like since might be a better fit than because in the sentence..

Edit: Thanks nitya for correction

She shares the dress with me.------------------Correct
She shares the same dress with me.-----------Incorrect So kick A and B with this analogy. C is obvious winner.

2 extremely good analysis is available on the following links on the sentence constructions with "same... as ..."

I have panacea for this problem for yours
You dont need this "do" when using "same... as ..." sentence construction as per the following link.
