IMO: E
"compare with" is for differences (while "compare to" is for similarities). And the comparision is between "children whose parents speak English as a second language" and "children whose parents are native English speakers".

This one is from GMATPrep?

Compare to --- comparing different things, but looking for similarities.

compare the original signature with a fake one
compare amitdgr's guitar noise to music

Good example....

This one was from one of the mock tests (from MGMAT).
