B for correct S-V agreement.

C makes an illogical comparison.

(B) dirt roads cost twice as much to maintain as paved roads do

B is correct for llism and proper comparision. B is read as under:

Dirt roads may evoke the bucolic simplicity of another century, but financially strained townships point out that dirt roads cost twice as much to maintain as paved roads do (means cost too).

B is the correct answer.

I choose between B and D as B was shorter.
Any explainations why it cannot be 'D'

OA is B

D and E don't make any sense. In C the meaning is confusing. What do paved roads do?. to maintain themselves?. Only A and B remain. The intended meaning of the sentence is to compare the cost of maintaining dirt roads to the cost of maintaining paved roads. This is only correctly introduced in B.
