why E is wrong?
The rates of Mideast immigrants' entrepreneurship exceeds those of virtually every other immigrant group in the increasingly diverse United States economy.

It seems that rates of entrepreneurship is being compared in both the cases. So why is E a wrong?

Here the comparison should be between immigrants. A,B and D are out for wrong comparison.
In E, usage of exceeds(singular) voilates rates(plural). Hence E is out
C is the best choice

My answer: C ; C compares the rates of immigrant entrepreneurship to the rates of other immigrant groups. Others don't have such similar comparison.

This has SV problem. Here subject is rates of.. which is plural but verb exceeds is singular. If that is corrected then this is fine...kudos if you like my post :-D

revanth4gmat is absolutely right,however I would like to pint out another error which is Mideast immigrants' is a wrong term to use.For instance

"Florida Man is better than ....."

You should use "The man from Florida is better than ......"

Moreover the Comparison should always be of similar things so the usage of Noun Immigrant is necessary here in order to compare the rates of the immigrant group with other groups

(E) is wrong because

the rates we are talking about is for the immigrants and not for the entrepreneurship.
(1000 coming to USA from Mideast , 200 are turning into entrepreneurship ; rate =20%.More than other natives coming to USA say 10%,or 2%)

When constructing possessive form, combining with 'of' and " 's " is not preferable form.

The below explanation is crystal clear.

I know its asking too much. But can you explain the error you are talkin in more detail?
Till now i'm only aware that it has verb number agreement error as exceeds is used for rates.

Yes,you are right. In fact, the comparison here is of "rates"
Here the type of rate discussed into the question is-the ratio by which immigrants are turning into entrepreneurs

Case A
No of mid east immigrants =100
No of entrepreneurs outt 100=20
ratio=20/100=1/5

Case B
No of mid other immigrants =1000
No of entrepreneurs outt 1000=10
ratio=10/1000=1/100

Ratio Case A> Ratio Case B

any other ratio/(s) seem to be here?

E has two problems:

1. SVA (exceeds)
2 Less idiomatic (or if I can say Non idiomatic) - Rate of X's Y

Correct idiom may be - X rate of Y / rate of Y in X

Both the C & E option talks about one thing i.e. rate of entrepreneurship.

C is correct as it uses idiom in more idiomatic way.

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

(A) Mideast immigrants' rates of entrepreneurship exceed
The subject of this first part of the comparison is "the rates"- that exceed every immigrant group? No sense comparison, we can compare rates with rates and groups with groups; we cannot nix the two.
(B) Mideast immigrants are exhibiting rates of entrepreneurship exceeding
This has a modifier issue: "rates exceeding every group", how can a rate exceeds a group?
(C) Immigrants from the Mideast exhibit rates of entrepreneurship exceeding those of
This is correct
(D) The rates of entrepreneurship in immigrants from the Mideast exceed
Same as A: the rates exceed a group.
(E) The rates of Mideast immigrants' entrepreneurship exceeds those of
This is out on a simple subject-verb agreement: "rates exceeds"

Between C and E, rates are plural so in E exceeds is wrong it should be exceed. C wins

Just my 2c

non underlined portion is giving a clue such that the underlined portion should be immigrant as a subject. only C has that clear structure.
