I received a private message asking for additional clarification about the error in E. I'm posting my response here for the group in case others need clarification too:
The problem with E as written is that it's not parallel in structure. It makes sense logically (the primary error with comparisons), but sometimes with comparisons you will be eliminating answer choices on the basis of structure.
