there is a typo in question. "than" is needed.

Pronoun reference is tested here.

E appears to be the answer.

Its testing
1) Collective nouns like army,class crowd etc (whether they are singular or plural)
2) Pronouns

A,B,C,D all assume 'army' is plural. Collective nouns are singular.

So, E is my answer, though something funny with this question.

'they' and 'their' is wrong since army is a singular noun. -> A,B,C and D are out.

E is best.
