The statement is comparing the quality of protein in wheat with that in the rice. So that is the meaning we should strive to make after correcting the grammatical errors.

Non-underlined part says - In addition to having more protein -than wheat does this part is modifying "Rice" so {A and C} can be rejected.

In {D} - it says - rice protein and this part compares this rice protein with that in the wheat, which is not making any sense.
Hence reject {D}

In {E} a "that" is missing after than - because it is protein in rice which is higher in quality than the protein in wheat, not that protein is higher quality than wheat.

So the correct one according to me is {B}

protein in rice is correctly compared to the protein in wheat, and rice is correctly modified by the non-underlined part.

Here's how to do this in < 30 seconds

Step 1) On basis of Apples Vs Oranges framework, note you are comparing "wheat" with whatever is after the comma.
The only two that make sense is (B) and (E) - because they each mention RICE as the subject.

Step 2) For (E) - "rice has a protein higher in quality than wheat" - it's missing "does" at the end.

Only (B) - " rice has protein of higher quality than that in wheat" makes sense.

You are comparing the protein of rice vs that [the protein] in wheat.

Make sure you are comparing apples to apples.
