Because the Earth's crust is more solid there and thus better able to transmit shock waves, an earthquake of a given magnitude typically devastates an area 100 times greater in the eastern United States than it does in the West.

(A) of a given magnitude typically devastates an area 100 times greater in the eastern United States than it does in the West

(B) of a given magnitude will typically devastate 100 times the area if it occurs in the eastern United States instead of the West

(C) will typically devastate 100 times the area in the eastern United States than one of comparable magnitude occurring in the West

(D) in the eastern United States will typically devastate an area 100 times greater than will a quake of comparable magnitude occurring in the West

(E) that occurs in the eastern United States will typically devastate 100 times more area than if it occurred with comparable magnitude in the West

Compares Earthquakes in US clearly with another of the same magnitude in the West.

of a given magnitude will typically devastate 100 times the area if it occurs in the eastern United States instead of the West : Wrogly compares an earthquake to the West

will typically devastate 100 times the area in the eastern United States than one of comparable magnitude occurring in the West : Changes the meaning of the sentence. Seems to indicate the earthquake might destroy 100 times the area of Eastern US

in the eastern United States will typically devastate an area 100 times greater than will a quake of comparable magnitude occurring in the West : "greater than will a quake of" impropoer construction

that occurs in the eastern United States will typically devastate 100 times more area than if it occurred with comparable magnitude in the West: Too wordy compared to A
