This is a Comparison problem. We are comparing the treachery of Benedict Arnold with the treachery of Earl Tostig. Eliminate A, B and C for attempting to compare Arnold's treachery with Tostig himself. As well, the use of the past present ("had been" and "had not been") in C and E is unnecessary. D is the right answer because it correctly compare the treachery of Arnold to that (the treachery) of Tostig.

Surat...that was not a typo...Stamford is right..I think Stamford exists in quite a few states..I have been to the one close to Albany in NY state.

My take is D

treachery of Benedict should be parallel ...of Tostig

so treachery of Benedict Arnold.....was not unlike that of Tostig Tostig

Yeah I agree with D but isn't double negative bit awkward?
