This sentence presents a contrast as indicated by the word – unlike. It states that H.Ross Perot’s independent run for presidency in 1992 arose from a desire to establish a viable third party in American politics. This was not the motive for George Wallace in 1968 and John Anderson in 1980.

Option A :- This sentence does not establish parallel comparison. The non-underlined portion of the sentence contains element 2 of the comparison – Perot’s independent run for the presidency. Thus, the underlined portion of the sentence should also be the candidacy or independent run of other two people.
Choice B: Parallelism Comparison Error as in Choice A.
Choice C: Parallelism Comparison Error as in Choice A. In addition, “which” is used incorrectly to refer to people.
Choice D: Parallelism Comparison Error as in Choice A.
Choice E: No errors.
Thus, Choice E is the correct answer.
