Eliminate A.

B: Like those of temperate storms, the circulation of hurricanes
Here, those (plural) does not agree with the circulation (singular).
Eliminate B.

The result is an incomplete sentence.

Hi GMATGuru,

If choice C has a verb, could be correct? Is 'as it is with temperate storms' correct?

thanks

In C, it seems to refer to the circulation of hurricanes, conveying the following meaning:
The circulation of hurricanes, as the circulation of hurricanes is with temperate storms.
The clause in red does not convey a clear meaning.
Eliminate C.

Answer choice A and D are comparing temperature storms with the circulation of hurricane, which is wrong. The comparison must be of temperature storms with hurricane. So, A and D are eliminated. In answer choice B, plural “those” is used for the singular “circulation of hurricane”, which is wrong. So, we can eliminate B. Answer choice C lacks verb before “always”. Answer choice E has the correct structure. Hence, E is the answer.
