I think E.
'between' is correct as the comparison is b/w 2 entities.
'comparing bond yields with' sounds correct

E it is.
When you are choosing between 2 things, right word is between.
When you are comparing two similar things, right idiom is compare A with B.

agree with you. Can anyone please tell me the difference between " compare A with B" and " compare A to B" as i know they're both ok. Thanks in advance.

Compare apples with oranges. Compare an apple to an orange.

Select E and move on...

Edited> On second thought, even though the above idioms may be correct, there appears to be multiple idioms in this sentence.

Base a choice on + noun

<or>

Make a choice by + verb

In which case the correct answer should be C.
