The writings of Jorge Luis Borges have been compared to many other authors. Franz Kafka and James Jovce in particular, but with a style that is unique.

A. many other authors, Franz Kafka and James Joyce in particular, but with a style that is unique comparison error - work compared to authors
B. those of many other authors, Franz Kafka and James Joyce in particular, but, in fact, his style is unique correct bu process of elimination
C. those of many other authors, with Franz Kafka's and James Joyce's in particular, but whose style is in fact, unique pronoun error - whose -ambiguous
D. that of many other authors, Franz Kafka's and James Joyce's in particular, but with a unique style . modifier error - authors followed by possessive. that is singular -should be plural
E. the works of many other authors, among them Franz Kafka and James Joyce in particular, but whose style is a unique onepronoun error - whose - ambiguous

A states that the writings of Jorge Luis Borges have been compared to many other authors, this is incorrect. We need to compare the writings of Jorge Luis Burges with the writings of other authors.

A - Incorrectly compares writings with authors

B - Correctly compares writings of Jorge with those of other authors, a bit wordy but keep it for now.

C - starts of comparing the writings but then switches to the possessive case, "Franz Kafka's and James Joyce's". Eliminate

D - This choice ends with "but with a unique style". Whose style are we talking about?

E - This sentence repeats the same error as D, "but whose style is a unique one"

B wins..

The writings of Jorge Luis Borges have been compared to many other authors. Franz Kafka and James Jovce in particular, but with a style that is unique.

A. many other authors, Franz Kafka and James Joyce in particular, but with a style that is unique
wrong comparison, writings is compared to authors
B. those of many other authors, Franz Kafka and James Joyce in particular, but, in fact, his style is unique
Correct
C. those of many other authors, with Franz Kafka's and James Joyce's in particular, but whose style is in fact, unique
Franz Kafka's and James Joyce's should modify author, but it does not, hence incorrect
D. that of many other authors, Franz Kafka's and James Joyce's in particular, but with a unique style
Franz Kafka's and James Joyce's should modify author, but it does not, hence incorrect
E. the works of many other authors, among them Franz Kafka and James Joyce in particular, but whose style is a unique one
Wrong comparison, writings is compared to works
