Use comparitive i.e. better.
In d, that introduces a clause with a preposition. So I feel its incorrect.

This one has me puzzled

It's clearly only between C&D (as Marcab says - it's a comparative)

but I don't really like the OA (D) at all, it 'just sounds wrong', that said I'm not overly comfortable with C either.

Could we have the OE?

I am totally confused here.
