Over 75% of the energy produced in France derives from nuclear power, while in Germany it is just over 33%.

A) while in Germany it is just over 33% // it -> no antecedent -> out
B) compared to Germany, which uses just over 33% // wrong comparison , energy produced cant be compared to germany
C) whereas nuclear power accounts for just over 33% of the energy produced in Germany // correct
D) whereas just over 33% of the energy comes from nuclear power in Germany // If you read the sentence very literally it means nuclear power makes up for 75 % of the energy in France and the same nuclear power plants account for 33 % of energy in Germany.
E) compared with the energy from nuclear power in Germany, where it is just over 33%. // again it has no clear antecedent , the way it sounds it looks like it is trying to refer to energy produced and that doesn't make sense.

Over 75% of the energy produced in France derives from nuclear power, while in Germany it is just over 33%.

A) while in Germany it is just over 33%
Wrong:- "It" is ambiguous. Does it refers to nuclear power or to the energy produced.

B) compared to Germany, which uses just over 33%
Wrong:- Energy is compared to Germany.

C) whereas nuclear power accounts for just over 33% of the energy produced in Germany
Correct:- Correctly compares "75% of the energy produced in France" to "33% of the energy produced in Germany"

D) whereas just over 33% of the energy comes from nuclear power in Germany
Wrong:- Ok !! This is the funniest of all options. To understand why it is wrong you will have to read the entire sentence.
Over 75% of the energy produced in France derives from nuclear power whereas just over 33% of the energy comes from- nuclear power in Germany
This makes us feel that WE ARE TALKING ONLY ABOUT FRANCE'S ENERGY. FRANCE MAKES IT OWN ENERGY AND TAKES 33% ENERGY FROM GERMANY.

E) compared with the energy from nuclear power in Germany, where it is just over 33%.
Wrong:- Again "it" has no logical antecedent. What is 33% - "energy" or "nuclear power" ?
