+1 for B

(A) the adults who raised them --> Comparison error. Formation of social groups is compared to adults
(B) that of the adults who raised them --> Corrects the error in A.
(C) that among the adults who raised them
(D) they that raised the adults
(E) the formation of social groups of the adults who raised them --> Too wordy

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



There is an ambiguity that arises without the use of an appropriate pronoun in this sentence. Choice A compares the adults to the formation. In choice D it is not clear to what the ‘they’ refers. D also changes the meaning. Choice C does not maintain parallel structure as it has ‘among’, which is not parallel to the earlier ‘of’ in the sentence. Choice E is not as efficient as choice B. B, by using the word that, refers to the correct comparison: the formation of social groups by two different age groups. Choice B is the correct answer.
