think "that" is necessary. A sounds weird with however much. B seems best

"However much" is a valid usage, quite common in business language.

A - much not used for countable nouns
B- Correct
C - the second part of the sentence needs to be contrasted with the information in the first part, words such as 'although, 'despite',etc are needed
D - changes the meaning ("may" )
E- same as D

'However much' is an idiom, meaning 'as much as':

Hmm...I didn't know that. B somehow distrots the meaning refering to all parents, but 'much' seemed so unbilievable for count nouns to be true :-D thanks for the question :)

Official Explanation

The options for this sentence present you with a list of different idioms from which to choose. Start with the end: is agree that, agree for, or agree correct? The first is fine, the second is unidiomatic because for doesn't go with agree, and the third is out because that is necessary in order for the sentence to make sense. That leaves (A), (B), and (C). (A) isn't particularly eloquent, but it's not grammatically flawed. (B) is out because Despite the fact doesn't fit with may agree (it can be a fact that they agree, but if we don't know whether they agree, then there's no fact to discuss). (C) is wordy, passive (more on this later), and it doesn't agree with the rest of the sentence; if you're skeptical, try reading it in. Only (A) survives.

Not sure between A and B
Both seems grammartically correct. But B is a little bit wordy and has slight change in the meaning.

So I go for A

Sure....

U can see a similar post: however-much-shareholders-may-agree-that-the-board-should-20920.html

In this, However much is correct.. And as specified earlier in some posts "However much" is an IDIOM.

Example of how despite the fact is used...
We lost the game, despite the fact that we practiced all week.

Hope this helps...
