(A) who was thrust into a world that was dominated by wealthier, better-educated, and more polished people than him
who is not needed.
(B) who had been thrust into a world that was dominated by more wealthy, educated, and polished people than him
It is a factual sentence..so past perfect tense is not correct.
(C) who had been thrust into a world dominated by wealthier, better-educated, and people more polished than he was
We are starting a informative sentence with "that" no need for past perfect tense here. It is a fact that is being stated here.

(D) thrust into a world dominated by more wealthy, educated, and polished people than him
seems correct to me.
(E) thrust into a world dominated by wealthier, better-educated, and more
polished people than he
"than he" does not make sense

Its between C and E for subject form. C breaks the parallel form. So IMO E.

E for me

....
Quote:
.he was a small-town Midwesterner
....

A,B,C are straight out. -> he was a small town....[who]-> awkward usage

Between D&E

E for me for the right comparison and wealthier, better-educated, and more
polished people than he [was]

thrust into a world dominated by more wealthy, educated, and polished people than him

Believe it or not, this sentence appeared for real in a the NYtimes. See if you can spot it here :
http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.h ... gewanted=2

If nytimes is grammatically correct, then the answer should be E.
