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 - rates are compared with immigrant group. so wrong
B. Mideast immigrants are exhibiting rates of entrepreneurship exceeding - rates cannot exceed immigrant group itself but should exceed rates of immigrant group. Again illogical comparison. So wrong
C. Immigrants from the Mideast exhibit rates of entrepreneurship exceeding those of - correct comparison; rates of Mideast vs rates (those) of every other immigrant group
D. The rates of entrepreneurship in immigrants from the Mideast exceed - rates are compared with immigrant group. so wrong
E. The rates of Mideast immigrants’ entrepreneurship exceeds those of - comparison correct, but the verb (exceed) doesn't match the plural 'rates', so wrong

Grateful for kudos if you like the explanation

D cannot be the ans because there's a comparison problem. you cannot compare rates with a group

IMO C

C & E are the contenders & E can be ruled out because "rates" should have "exceed" i.e. a plural verb

E fails the SV agreement

C is perfect.

Should be C since it compares the rate of entrepreneurship in one group with others by using "Those".

I will go with C.

A- rates exceed other immigrant.. Wrong comparison
B- rate exceeding other immigrant... Wrong comparison
D. rates of entrepreneurship ....exceed other immigrant.. Wrong comparison
E. The rates of Mideast immigrants' entrepreneurship exceeds -- Wrong SV agreement

C exhibit rates of entrepreneurship exceeding those of other immigrant.... rates compared to rates of other immigrant group...

C is correct

why not E My take is E. Because it's concise and simple and grammatically correct also.

Though C has an awkward construction, all other options are unsound. I vote for C.

I chose C...better construction as immigrants from the mideast is appropiate rather than mideast immigrants.
What is OA?

Except C in all the comparisons rates have been compared to immigrants group which is wrong.
Hence C.

Comparing rates..."those of" is correctly used... .
So, A, B and D are eliminated.
In E, "The rates of" is pl and "exceeds" is sl, so, SV error. eliminated E.

The best choice is C.

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
