The correct idiom is "Mistake for" and not "Mistaken as" or "Mistaken with".
So A, C and D are out.

Between B & E, "Mistaken for being" is incorrect since "you can be mistaken for someone" and not "mistaken for being someone".

So IMO B is the correct answer.

Hey Experts,

Someone can please give me correct used idioms list which are frequent in GMAT. I have seen many questions are straight forward only based on correct use of idioms. Being non-native speaker I find difficulty to distinguish correct use of idioms.

It will much appreciated.
