For me it was b/w A and B. IMO A.

However, in this sentence we need a comparison hence I went with A inplace of B.
D&E are out as the idiom is "as many as"

C. There are two pronouns one after the other "those whose" I am not sure whether this is the right reason to eleminate C. Can anyone else explain the "error" in C.

C makes a wrong comparision.

IMO B. In A "as many as compared to" in uniodmatic. "as many as" in B sounds correct.

We need as many as.

D & E are out

C has those, which can refer to both HH and C & GC

Between A & B.

B is parallel to the first part of the sentence

There are more than three times as many households where the children and grandchildren are living in their grandparents’ home as there are households where the grandparents are living in their children’s or grandchildren’s home.

I feel that the comparison is done already with as many as. No need for compared to.

B is my pick
