It is as difficult to prevent crimes against property as those - should be it is that are against a person.

(A) those that are against a do not what to say but "those that"- little ambiguous
(B) those against a comparing difficulty to crimes, not ||
(C) it is against a - wrong comparison; preventing blah blah...to a person. also || markers are not properly placed- at least "to" should have been placed before "person" even to make a superfluous ||
(D) preventing those against a - wrong tense, ||ism issue
(E) it is to prevent those against a the only better choice could have been- it is to prevent "crimes" against a. so my bet on this one!

Though I chimed in little late for this but still I hope this helps!

E is correct :
It is as difficult to prevent crimes against property as those that are against a person

Make sentence which is easy to understand:
It is as difficult to prevent crimes against property as (it is difficult ) to prevent (crime) against people.
Now remove extra wordings;
It is as difficult to prevent crimes against property as it is to prevent those against people.
