First, I think the underlined part is until "it was", otherwise it is impossible to find an alternative.
A "greater that" is incorrect. It should be "greater than" B CORRECT This is a ellipse question. "the costs" is implicit before "in any previous election" C I almost choose this, because "they" referring to costs. But the verb "have been" seems that the costs of the previous elections are still occurring. B is best. D "which" has wrong referent E "which" has wrong referent
If it is right, consider a kudo I am in the half of the way to access the GMATClub tests
A. a greater proportion than it was -incorrect idiom. the correct idiom should be "Greater...than..." B. a greater proportion than -Correct C. a greater proportion than they have been -We are comparing "a greater portion" to the "potion" spent in previous election. Use of plural "they" to refer to this portion is incorrect here D. which is greater than was so- incorrect placement of identifier "which". "Which" should generally be followed immediately after the modifying noun. E. which is greater than it has been -same error as in D _________________
Soaring television costs accounted for more than half the spending in the presidential campaign of 1992, a greater proportion than it was in any previous election.
A. a greater proportion than it was - it refers to television costs, should be plural?

C. a greater proportion than they have been - shouldn't this be they were a greater proportion than they have been....to complete the parallel? D. which is greater than was so - wordy? E. which is greater than it has been -again, it.
