There is no plural referent for 'those' in the previous clause. To use 'those' you need a 'tourism industries' and that is not avaiable
chetan2u what are your thoughts?
I understand that you need "industries" as you're speaking about multiple countries industries, but also grammatically it is not present

Not an expert , but here is my take on this.

It has more to do with the countries mentioned than with the tourism industry.
If it were one country say Cuba , then the comparison would have been that of cuba
now since we are comparing the tourism industry of Dominican Republic with tourism industries of multiple countries
"Those" imo is correct.

Therefore,

Totally agree with you, "those" is wrong, you can fix the question adding "that"

Perfect thought process.

Yes, there is no "economies" to refer to "those" but usage of "that" would suggest that the other 3 countries have 1 tourism industry, which would be an awkward meaning. Expect the GMAT to throw such minor twists once in a while.

Remember:
1. Conserve the intended meaning.
2. Go by elimination to reach the best answer choice.

All the best!

[quote="TaN1213"]Unlike Cuba, Jamaica, and Haiti, other countries in the Caribbean, the tourism industry of Dominican Republic is well established and recognizes the importance of other cultures and languages.

A. Unlike Cuba, Jamaica, and Haiti, other countries in the Caribbean, the tourism industry of Dominican Republic ---> incorrect comparison
B. Dominican Republic, unlike the tourism industry of other countries in the Caribbean, Cuba, Jamaica, and Haiti, ----> incorrect comparison
C. Dominican Republic as well its tourism industry, unlike that of other countries in the Caribbean, Cuba, Jamaica, and Haiti, --->unclear if comparing countries or tourism
D. the tourism industry of Dominican Republic, unlike those of Cuba, Jamaica, and Haiti, other countries in the Caribbean, ---> looks good
E. the tourism industry of Dominican Republic, unlike those in Caribbean countries including Cuba, Jamaica, and Haiti, ----> incorrect parrallelism

Answer D after elimination

Can an expert, please explain to me why is correct in answer E to write "Cuba, Jamaica, and Haiti, other countries in the Caribbean," instead of "Caribbean countries including Cuba, Jamaica, and Haiti,"?

unlike those of Cuba, Jamaica, and Haiti, other countries in the Caribbean,
I have a question here.
Is Haiti a group of countries in the Caribbean?

What is wrong with "unlike those of Cuba, Jamaica, Haiti, and other countries in the Caribbean"?
