IMO
[Reveal] Spoiler:
C
,
"it" does not have any antecedent
[Reveal] Spoiler:
- A,B,E out

"and" is not appropriate to show contrast + we don't know 14% of <WHAT>. we cannot assume "14 of world wine" because of LACK of parallelism
[Reveal] Spoiler:
- D out

A & B convey the meaning that wine produced in Italy accounts for 14% of wine in Spain.
D seems to talk about the rate of wine production in Spain which to me does not make any sense.
E incorrectly compares Italy to wine production.

Kudos Please... If my post helped.

you are totally right, as all of those who chose answer C

in E - ''it'' has no clear referent.

I was discouraged on C by 'world figures' why do we need it to be plural?

More than 17 percent of world wine is produced in Italy, //while in Spain it is a little over 14 percent//

(A) while in Spain it is a little over 14 percent
(B) compared to Spain, where it is a little over 14 percent
(C) whereas in Spain wine production accounts for a little over 14% of world figures
(D) and in Spain wine production is a little over 14 percent
(E) compared with the wine production in Spain, where it is a little over 14 percent.

pls, give a kudos if you find my explanation good

A
"it" must grammatically refer to "more than ...wine" because "It" pronoun like "they" refers to the same thing while "that,those" refers to different thing. this reference of "it" is not logic
B
"it" has similar problem as in A. "compared to" has only "italy" noun which is eligible but comparion is not logic
D
"wine production" can not be "over 14 percent". no sense
E
"it" has problem as in A
"compared..." has no logic noun refered.

all the choice appear grammartical but they contain illogic meaning. this is the focus of sc.
