A, B, D) We need to compare rates of X to rates of Y. Hence these choices are all wrong
E) Incorrect because SVA error. Rates needs plural form EXCEED
C) Correct

A B and D all compare ‘rates of entrepreneurship’ to ‘every other immigrant group’, so they break parallelism. E has a subject verb disagreement, ‘rates’ is plural and should be paired with the plural verb ‘exceed’.

C is the right choice.

Mideast immigrants’ rates of entrepreneurship exceed virtually every other immigrant group in the increasingly divers United States economy.

(A) Mideast immigrants’ rates of entrepreneurship exceed
(B) Mideast immigrants are exhibiting rates of entrepreneurship exceeding
(C) Immigrants from the Mideast exhibit rates of entrepreneurship exceeding those of
(D) The rates of entrepreneurship in immigrants from the Mideast exceed
(E) The rates of Mideast immigrants’ entrepreneurship exceeds those of

Let's assume
Mideast immigrants = Group A
every other immigrant group = Group B
rates of entrepreneurship = xyz rates

(A) Mideast immigrants’ rates of entrepreneurship exceed
Group A's xyz rates exceed Group B ...bla bla bla

(B) Mideast immigrants are exhibiting rates of entrepreneurship exceeding
Group A are exhibiting xyz rates exceeding Group B

This would have been correct if it was exceeding those of Group B

(C) Immigrants from the Mideast exhibit rates of entrepreneurship exceeding those of
Group A exhibit xyz rates exceeding those of Group B

(D) The rates of entrepreneurship in immigrants from the Mideast exceed
xyz rates in Group A exceed Group B

(E) The rates of Mideast immigrants’ entrepreneurship exceeds those of
