The answer would be D - and compared is right.

Compared to OR
Compared with.

Logic: We use 'Compared to' when we compare 'Similarities' and we use 'Compared with' when we compare the 'Differences'.

Here we are comparing nonrunners with people who do not run.
A,C and E are out.

B. 'Nonrunners' parallel to 'People' (Noun // Noun)- Correct answer
D. 'Those who do not run' not parallel to 'people running' (Pronoun // Gerund or ING Verb)

Hope it helps!
