hi.. why C is correct is ' the placing of in germany'..
D tells us that some % of energy comes from nuc power in germany..... it may mean the energy of entire world comes from nuc power in germany.... so 'in germany' should be placed after '% of energy'...

C seems correct.

Pronoun issues in A and E -
B compares nuclear power to Germany

D changes meaning by suggesting nuclear power somehow come from Germany and not it's power plants (illogical)

C and D are actually tough choices to pick from.

But since GMAT prefers active voice over passive, C is the best bet.
