E has modifier issues or bad comparison
C and D are simple odd
Now A and B. not too sure.
I will bet on B
Like the many winter greens <further>, escarole needs ...
I believe A may have comparison issues.

I have noticed in multiple of these pesky lil SCs, GMAC likes to confuse us with the use of extra 'the'.

B , because that is the only one that compares correctly "unlike winter greens..escarole"

A , C compare the wrong thing.
E has a wordy phrase. ( lengthy cooking time )
D is also too wordy.

Unlike the many winter greens that have tough leaves and thus require a lengthy cooking time, those of escarole need little or no cooking.

A. many winter greens that have tough leaves and thus require a lengthy cooking time, those of escarole need
B. many winter greens that have tough leaves and thus require a lengthy cooking time, escarole needs
C. tough leaves of many winter greens and that they require for a lengthy cooking time, escarole needs
D. tough leaves of many winter greens and the requirement that they have a lengthy cooking time, those of escarole need
E. lengthy cooking time required by the many winter greens with tough leaves, escarole needs

STEP 1:What is this sentence trying to tell me?
After 1st reading I get: Those need little or no cooking and whatever need little or no cooking is unlike something else.

STEP 2: What is modifying, pardon the pun, what and how does the underlined part relate to the original sentence?
that ... modifies greens and of escarole modifies those.

STEP 3: What do I think is wrong with the sentence based on what I know?
I have no idea what those is supposed to refer to; how do I fix this?-btw D is out because it repeats the aforementioned mistake.

STEP 4: Split and eliminate only by applying grammar rules you know, at least until you run out of options (:
At this point we only have B C and E left
E is illogical- E compares time to escarole
C compares leaves to escarole- Well escarole has leaves.
The following example better illustrates my point; John, a man, is better than all men.(How can John be better than himself?)

STEP 5: Read original sentence, replacing the underlined part with your answer.

Comparison SC.

Comparison must be grammatically and logically correct. We cannot just compare Apples with oranges. We need to compare comparable entities.

We need to compare winter greens with escarole
Or
Compare leaves of winter greens with those (leaves) of escarole


A. many winter greens that have tough leaves and thus require a lengthy cooking time, those of escarole need
Highlighted entities are not comparable.
Winter green Vs Leaves of escarole


B. many winter greens that have tough leaves and thus require a lengthy cooking time, escaroleneeds
Correct comparison. - Correct

C. tough leavesof many winter greens and that they require for a lengthy cooking time, escaroleneeds
Highlighted entities are not comparable.
Leaves Vs escarole

D. tough leavesof many winter greens and the requirement that they have a lengthy cooking time, thoseof escarole need
Comparison is correct
but then we have other errors " and the requirment .."

E. lengthy cooking time required by the many winter greens with tough leaves, escaroleneeds
Highlighted entities are not comparable.

B. many winter greens that have tough leaves and thus require a lengthy cooking time, escarole needs
C. tough leaves of many winter greens and that they require for a lengthy cooking time, escarole needs=>
D. tough leaves of many winter greens and the requirement that they have a lengthy cooking time, those of escarole need
E. lengthy cooking time required by the many winter greens with tough leaves, escarole needs

you want to compare one species of plant to another.
In A winter green is being = compared to leaves of escarole. not the correct meaning.

Sentence want to convey that X (winter greens ) has tough leaves and that's why require a lengthy cooking time but Y (escarole) doesn't.

I got confused with D but since comparison kind of looked ok but with after further observation that it is lengthy and also it compares "tough leaves" and not only leaves then the only correct option with correct comparison is B

Unlike the many winter greens that have tough leaves and thus require a lengthy cooking time, those of escarole need little or no cooking.

A. many winter greens that have tough leaves and thus require a lengthy cooking time, those of escarole need - comparison issue - those seems to refer to leaves -- Leaves and winter green
B. many winter greens that have tough leaves and thus require a lengthy cooking time, escarole needs - Correct
C. tough leaves of many winter greens and that they require for a lengthy cooking time, escarole needs - tough leaves and that they require are not parallel forms
D. tough leaves of many winter greens and the requirement that they have a lengthy cooking time, those of escarole need - illogical comparison: that the LEAVES are unlike the REQUIREMENT that they have a lengthy cooking time.
E. lengthy cooking time required by the many winter greens with tough leaves, escarole needs - escarole is illogically compared to the cooking time

Answer B
