B it should be.

A and C are out for the reasons given by dwivedys.
Also, C has a modifier problem.
D employs a faulty comparison (number with people).
B is more parallel than E.

Agree with B

In E 'ones' can't refer back to people

B is correct also for parallelism

I got it wrong the last time I attempted this one.
It is B...dwivedys is right...parallelism wins.

But doesn't B seem a bit odd...because of the dash it says: the maneater of the movies is fewer than have been killed by bee stings...any thoughts??

Vineet - just look up noun phrases/appositives on google. Most of your doubts will be solved.

Hey mlchang!
What is OA?
If it is B, why not E?
Why ONES can not refer back to people?
