Thanks a lot GMATNinjaTwo.

Sorry to modify the original choice, but I did so to clear my doubt. If choice C is as below, would it be correct?

Unlike those of the United States, where farmers can usually depend on rain or snow all year long, Sri Lanka's rains

AR15J, yes, that would be okay because it compares Sri Lanka's rains to those of the United States. Thanks for catching the mistake with the original post!

Also, thank you warriorguy for finding the duplicate thread! All future comments can be added to that thread: https://gmatclub.com/forum/unlike-the-u ... 11978.html.

When one knows that something is a comparison question with the spotting of the comparison marker word, the reflex action should be to verify whether the word that lies next to the comparator is both logically and structurally parallel to the compared thing in the other arm. By this single test, one may dislodge choice A through D in this topic. Although this question per se looks somewhat tricky, one can now make bold to mark the remaining choice as correct, provided of course he or she has acquired a good level of confidence about comparisons through deep practice.

E is Correct - The sentence uses two independent clauses to make the comparison. The first clause describes conditions in the United States, and the second clause describes conditions in Sri Lanka. The comparison is clear and logical.

(D) In comparison with the United States, whose farmers can usually depend on rain or snow all year long, the rains in most parts of Sri Lanka

Apart from the comparison error (US is compared to Rains), do we also have Pronoun Error?

Whose is used for people. Here it refers to United States?
