This SC revolves around a Comparison.

1) Comparison: To figure out what the comparison is supposed to be, we have to look past the underlined portion to the part of the sentence that we can't change. Here, the phrase "virtually every other immigrant group…" tells us what we're supposed to compare: an immigrant group to other immigrant groups. Eliminate A, D and E (they compare "rates" to immigrant groups, which is not correct).

2) Comparison Pt. 2: Between B and C, we have to read and confirm the actual comparison taking place. Answer B starts with the immigrant group, but then compares that group's rates to….every other immigrant group. Answer C starts with the immigrant group, but then compares that group's rates to THOSE (rates) of every other immigrant group. B makes the same mistake that A, D and E made; it just does so a little later on in the answer. Eliminate B.

Final Answer: C

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 - Incorrect comparison - rate to immigrant group ; Modifier error - usage of Mideast immigrants' - The correct expression is Mideastern immigrants or Immigrants from the Mideast
B. Mideast immigrants are exhibiting rates of entrepreneurship exceeding - Incorrect comparison - rates of entrepreneurship are being compared to immigrant group ; Modifier error as in A
C. Immigrants from the Mideast exhibit rates of entrepreneurship exceeding those of - Correct
D. The rates of entrepreneurship in immigrants from the Mideast exceed - Incorrect comparison
E. The rates of Mideast immigrants’ entrepreneurship exceeds those of - Subject verb agreement - rates is plural and thus needs exceed

Answer C

Quick fix

The focus here is on some rates under comparison with some other rates. Therefore, any choice that compares the rates with another immigrant group rather than its rates is incorrect. Eliminate choices A, B, and D first on this count. Between C and E, eliminate E for erring on simple SV agreement. C is the choice.
