The structure is Unlike A, B --- where B should be logically comparable to A. In all the highlighted portion, the comparison is blunder- comparing place to sun is nonsensical.
Only E has a neat structure presenting the intended meaning without any error.

Hi chetan2u VeritasKarishma

Can you please explain whats wrong in A?


Like and unlike are used to compare nouns and when you use them, a comparable noun is required ....
Unlike noun, noun .......
But here the structure is
unlike noun, in noun....
So we are comparing a noun, most of Norway, with a prepositional phrase, in Finnmark

Hi chetan2u ,
among all the options E seems the best. But I did not choose it.
Reason for the same was:

In most of Norway, residents can rely on a sunrise every day of the year, but in Finnmark the sun

I considered "residents can rely on a sunrise every day of the year" as a non-essential modifier since it was between the commas ( at the start and at the end ). And on eliminating the same "In most of Norway but in Finnmark the sun" seemed illogical.

Can you thrown some light on this ?
