72) In the last ten years, more visitors from England have arrived in Australia than the United States
(A) the United States
(B) the United States did
(C) compared to the United States
(D) from the United States
(E) the United States ones
OA is not at all clear to me.
D, more visitors from England have arrived in Australia than (visitors) from the United States (have arrived in Australia.)
The second part is similar to the first part, so you can cross it.
Choice A: If the US is compared with Australia, it lack of "in" before 'the US' to make the parallel structure
Choice B: "the US" here refer to human, so it has to parallel with " visitors from England", but it did not
Choice C: 'compare to' is totally redundant with the comparison structure "more ... than"
Choice E: "ones" here is refer to human, the same reasoning as choice B.
Hope that help
