(B) Unlike the reputations of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and other revolutionary heroes, Thomas Paine suffered greatly, to the point that, because of his reputation,

(E) Thomas Paine’s reputation suffered greatly, so much so that, unlike George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and other revolutionary heroes,



Here's my approach !!

So, A,B,C are out because of incorrect comparison.

persons are being compared to reputation


D.Hold it looks fine...reputation is being compared to reputation ..So that construction is also fine..
the reputation has a proper verb suffered..
Sp this option looks fine
E. so much so that--incorrect idiom
bad comparison
Thomas Paine’s reputation suffered greatly--lacks object


My OA would be D


Press Kudos if it helps!!

In contrast to X, Y
and
Unlike X, Y

In both above cases X and Y must be parallel.
D is correct choice with no error.

KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



D

Here a comparison is being made, so we have to be sure it's a logical comparison. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson,and the other revolutionary heroes cannot be compared with the reputation of Thomas Paine. Nor can those heroes’reputations be com- pared with Paine himself. So (A), (B), and (C) can be eliminated. The phrase “so much so that”in (E) is too wordy.
