Unlike X, Y
X= emergency calls
Y= cellular calls
A- Wrong because of the usage of "they"
B- Correct
C- Wrong, Parrellisme issue : travel // informing
D- Wrong, remember Unlike X, Y : in this option, we are comparing "emergency calls" and "emergency operators"
E- Wrong, same issue in C and D

So, the correct answer should be B

Hi,

In A - 'where they ' is incorrect usage
Sentence starts with 'Unlike emergency calls', so comparison should be with 'cellular calls'.
In C the comparison is with location of a caller
In D and E, the comparison is with emergency operators.

So, B should be the right answer.

In the para emergency calls should be compare with "some sort of calls" i.e. after second comma there should be noun (for some type of calls)

Thus makes C,D and E out

Now in A "they" creating a confusion for anteceedent which is clear in B

So my take B

We are comparing emergency calls with cellular calls...So only option B seems correct.

Unlike emergency calls that travel through regular telephone lines, where they thus automatically inform the operator of the location and phone number of the caller, cellular calls require emergency operators to determine the location of the caller.

A. lines, where they thus automatically inform the operator of the location and phone number of the caller, cellular calls require emergency operators to determine the location of the caller -- usage of where is incorrect

B. lines and thus automatically inform the operator of the location and phone number of the caller, cellular calls require emergency operators to determine the location of the caller - Correct

C. lines, thus automatically informing the operator of the location and phone number of the caller, the location of a caller on a cellular phone has to be determined by the operator- Emergency calls and location of a caller are not parallel

D. lines, and thus automatically inform the operator of the location and phone number of the caller, emergency operators have to determine the location of the cellular phone caller- Emergency calls and emergency operators are not parallel

E. lines, thus automatically informing the operator of the location and phone number of the caller, emergency operators receiving a cellular call have to determine the location of the caller - same as D

Answer B
