The underlined portion should logically compare, president vs. previous presidents and with terms.

Option C compares - Grover Cleveland vs. “all former two-term U.S. Presidents.”

VERITAS PREP OFFICIAL SOLUTION:

This question makes a comparison. The non-underlined portion says “all former two-term U.S. Presidents.” This is compared to the underlined portion, therefore the underlined portion should logically contrast something with the former two-term presidents. Only Choice C makes this comparison. Choice C indicates that Grover Cleveland is the exception to the rule shared by “all former two-term U.S. Presidents.” Choices A, B, D, and E incorrectly contrast “terms” with the former presidents.

Whenever you see a sentence that begins with "unlike" or "like," there is an extremely high likelihood that it is introducing a comparison, so inspect the two components of that comparison very carefully.
