There are a couple of clues to the right answer choice; first, in 'the more x, the more y' templates, you don’t need a connector such as ‘then’. A B are gone. Second, you have to have a noun or a pronoun in the second part to // the people in the first part. D wins

Daagh has given a very good explanation but for learners like me, when I see "to be" I am cautious using it because it is passive and GMAT does not prefer it.

There is a clear parallelism THE MORE X, THE MORE Y in D, also in E, there should be used when a place is in context. Here people are referred, hence we need "they".

D does it all.

Hope I was of some help :)

The word ‘there’ in C and E is used as an expletive subject and does not refer to a place. Therefore it may not be right to score them out on that count. The alternate explanation that ‘there’ does not parallel people is more reasonable.

+1 D

"they" is important because eliminates the ambiguity about who have the calcium depositits.

in 'the more x, the more y' is the correct idiom

So between D n E

to be is a passive form - E eliminated

D is the answer
