A because of parallelism and pronoun

(A)than in either Sweden or Finland - correct parallelism
(B)than either in Sweden or Finland - either in Sweden or in Finland is correct...
(C)than those in Sweden or Finland - increase is singular, so use of those is incorrect.
(D)than among those in either Sweden or Finland - same reason as C
(E)than it was either in Sweden or Finland - same as B

Between A and B, any good explanation on the difference between both?

Would be happy to throw some Kudos out there

Cheeers!

In 1997 the frequency of calvings among dairy cows increased across Northern Europe; this increase was more apparent in Norway than [u]either in Sweden or Finland.

In option B, Suppose we were to remove either ... or .. construction and write the stem as two separate clauses, we would have,
This increase was more apparent in Norway than in Sweden; this is right.
This increase was more apparent in Norway than Finland; this is wrong as increase is compared with Finland.

Hope this clarifies.

In B, the absence of the preposition 'in' before Finland breaks the rule of correlative conjunction parallelism. Either in Sweden or in Finland is the correct parallel expression.
