First, like much of Eastern Europe is not paralleled with "In Hungary". Therefore, D and E are out.

As with much of Eastern Europe also wrong in term of meaning and paralleled. => Choice B is out.

"In Hungary" should be paralleled with "AS in ...". Hence, choice A and C are in finalist.

In choice A, "many of which" refers to "women" is wrong. So, we keep choice C as the final answer. That's correct

IMO C too, I don't think things like absolute phrases make any difference, since in SC, you just choose the most appropriate one compared to other options, even though all of the options are not the best.

"an overwhelming proportion" --> Singular, this phrase refers to a particular proportion that is also overwhelming. Works should go with this phrase
