I'm just confused when to permit omitted words in comparison. For example:
Apples are more healthy to eat than caramels (are).
This example from Manhattan Sentence Correction shows that the omission is ok here. So if I change option B into this:
Mideast immigrants are exhibiting higher rates of entrepreneurship than every other immigrant group (is).
Would it be correct not to use those of in this situation?
If correct, what's the difference between than and exceed?

“Those” is a pronoun – specifically a plural pronoun. Its singular equivalent is “that”, and you might find it helpful to read this entire post on the word “that”.

And check out this explanation above for more on what “those of” is doing in this particular sentence.

There are no absolute rules when it comes to omitting words in comparisons. In general, it’s OK to omit words as long as the omission doesn’t cause any confusion. In both of your examples, my personal opinion is that the sentences are perfectly clear, regardless of whether you include or omit the extra verb.

You might also enjoy this post or this post or this post, all of which include discussions of when it’s acceptable to omit words in a comparison. But again, there are no absolute rules on this topic.

And if you really want a firehose of comparison content, check out this video and this sequel.

I hope this helps!
