Hi skamal7

(A) In Holland, a larger percentage of the gross national product is spent on defense of their coasts from rising seas than is spent on military defense in the United States.

A has two problems:

Problem #1: Meaning
The structure is: In Holland, a larger percentage of GDP is spent on X than is spent on Y in the U.S ==> The sentence seems to convey the meaning: Holland spends a larger percentage of its GDP on defense of its coasts than on its (Holland's) military (in the U.S). That's not the intended meaning.

Problem #2: Pronoun
Holland is singular ==> "their coasts" is incorrect.

Hope it helps.

(C) A larger percentage of Holland's gross national product is spent on defending their coasts from rising seas than the United States spends on military defense. >> see B
(D) Holland spends a larger percentage of its gross national product defending its coasts from rising seas than the military defense spending of the United States. >> wrongly comparing Holland with the military defense spending of US
(E) Holland spends a larger percentage of its gross national product on defending its coasts from rising seas than the United States does on military defense. >> CORRECT comparison
