Gotta be (C), because of the usage of the word share.

You might "share an ethnic heritage with" someone, but you don't "share the same ethnic heritage as" someone.

Instead you'd have the same ethnic heritage as someone. Kind of a subtle point.

Another illustration:

Correct: Bob and I shared a pizza. OR, I shared a pizza with Bob.
Not correct: I shared the same pizza as Bob.

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..

On a side note, C could be correct if the sentence had "do" after NE.


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

The remain of my elimination is (A) and (C) because its idiom have 'the same ... as'. (A) is wrong because of guy above said about the meaning of verb 'share' when go with 'the same ...heritage'

whereas is used to show contrast, no constrast here. E is gone
due to mean caused by. so caused by refers to two variery. not logic
the same with is not idiomatic.

share the same is redundant. share heritage is good.

C is left
