Unlike the automobile company, whose research was based on crashes involving sport utility vehicles, the research conducted by the insurance company took into account such factors as a driver's age, sex, and previous driving record.

(A) company, whose research was based on
(B) company, which researched
(C) company, in its research of
(D) company's research, having been based on
(E) company's research on

in A, B and C, there is a comparison issue while in D there is awkward and wordy construction. So answer is E.

1. Unlike A, E has the correct parallel structure that is
a. Unlike X(noun), Y(noun)
b. (noun modifier - prepositional phrase) on crashes modifies research vs (term 1)
(noun modifier verb-ed) conducted by modifies research (term 2) ->Am I correct?



2. However, I am still unconvinced of the meaning for choice E. It seems the meaning between the underline and non-underline portion is different.

I read through the definition of based on , and as follows
based on means -
If you base something on facts or ideas, you use those facts or ideas to develop it:
The film is based on a short story by Thomas Mann.
https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictio ... sth-on-sth
It simply implies that based on = based upon/created upon certain facts


Unlike E, A conveys the meaning of comparison if I were to replace the phrase as follows based on the above definition.
Can you shed the light on how to read the structure in E, if the way I have substituted is wrong, such that the meaning of two terms are the same?


A.
(term1)Automobile company 's research is based on (based upon/created upon) facts or ideas of crashes incidents
(term2)The research conducted by the insurance company took into account (based on/upon/created upon) such factors as a driver's age, sex, and previous driving record.

E.
(term1)Automobile company 's research is on (topic related to) crashes involving spot car's incidents
(term2) The research conducted by the insurance company took into account (based on/upon/created upon such factors as a driver's age, sex, and previous driving record.
