B is the best answer
AC: Comparison issue; can't compare people to averages
DE: Idiom issue for "as...as"
B: seems suspect, because we are comparing a singular noun to plural noun. However, correct according to following explanation.

Splits
1)
ABD: "likely" + to be
CE: "likely" needs infinitive after it
