IMO, (D) is better.
For transportation, unlike most cities, New York is not predominantly dependent on the automobile.

For transportation : modifies automobile
unlike most cities: modifies NewYork

Correct me If I am wrong...

E is better.
In choice D, it seems to compare transportation with cities.

here "unlike most cities" is non restrictive placed between "commas"

with out the non restrictive part we can read the sentence as

"for transportation, newyork is dependent on------"

now my question is, how can this sentence with the non restrictive part included be considered to compare newyork with transportation.
