Really funky,

All seem to indicate that the machinization cut the previous year cost, instead of saying the costs were cut in half of those in the previous year.

Although B stinks, but is the best option available.

C has verb problems, otherwise C were (was - same problem as it is in E) my pick.

B is my pick.

but what is wrong with C ?

"doubled the corn yield as cost were"

suggest costs as the factor increasing productivity.

Himalaya,

Qn for u. Did you choose B over E because B used active voice (cutting costs) against E which used passive voice (costs were cut)?
