Apples with oranges

A, B - wrong

D - 'all' is not right place suggesting again countries and not fertility rates.

Between C and E - tough one.

C - passive voice - wordy

I go with E

Agree, (E) is the best answer. (C) uses the fertility rates as the subject although there is a comparision with other nations such as T and I. (E) corrects this by replacing the rates with the Philippines. cheers

E is the clear winner.
A and B are out because of using 'LIKE'

C and D are out for faulty comparison.

E is the best.

A, B, C & D - Eliminate - Wrong comparison.
Left with B & E

E - correctly compares the fertility rates.

Hence E should be the answer.

Only "E" is consistently comparing fertility rates.

Yes, D's comparison is not correct:

such as Thailand and Indonesia
(<==those are nations), the Philippine nation's fertility (<==compared to a fertility ) rates consistently exceed all those of

E correctly compares nations with nations

'Like' is not the correct choice in this construction. Also, the GMAT prefers ‘such as’ to ‘like’ for examples. This eliminates A and B.

A, C, and D compare ‘Thailand and Indonesia’ and ‘fertility rates’ … wrong comparison.

B compares ‘fertility rates’ to ‘Southeast Asian neighbors (countries) … wrong comparison.

E: Correct
