The symptoms of the participants in a recent decongestant effectiveness study, including a required "stuffy nose," parallel that of the multitudes of Americans with the common cold each winter.
(A) parallel that of the multitudes of Americans with that corresponds to singular. Symptoms is plural - require those
(B) parallel those of the multitudes of Americans afflicted with CORRECT!!! uses plural - those and correct idiom - afflicted with
(C) parallel the multitudes of Americans afflicted with illogical comparison - symptoms to Americans
(D) parallels those of the multitudes of Americans afflicted from afflicted from - incorrect idiom
(E) parallels that of the multitudes of Americans afflicted from that is singular- require those. afflicted from is incorrect idiom

IMO, answer is B

(A) parallel that of the multitudes of Americans with - THOSE should be used instead of THAT. Moreover, the word AFFLICTED should be present before WITH. Hence Incorrect.
(B) parallel those of the multitudes of Americans afflicted with - CORRECT
(C) parallel the multitudes of Americans afflicted with - This option changes the original intent. How could SYMPTOM be compared with Humans?? Hence Incorrect.
(D) parallels those of the multitudes of Americans afflicted from - Plural verb should be used instead of singular. Moreover, correct idiomatic expression is AFFLICTED WITH. Hence Incorrect.
(E) parallels that of the multitudes of Americans afflicted from - THOSE should be used instead of THAT. - Plural verb should be used instead of singular. Moreover, correct idiomatic expression is AFFLICTED WITH. Hence Incorrect.
