Expert's post
First split is that the '15 percent' refers to a quantum of a singular and collective noun 'population' and so 15 percent can’t be expressed by ‘as many as’. It has to be ‘as much as.’ Eliminate A, D and E. In B, ‘causing the result’ is redundant and awkward.
C remains

c
15 percent requires as much as.
And Causing the result is awkward.
Similar description is required. as resulting and elimination both are noun.

it's clear that population is non-countable , so we need much but,
were it 15 percent of people would you use much or many ?

Yup its C alright. I thought that we should probably use 'as much as' for a quantifier word such as population. My bad... I wrongly answered E. Thanks everyone!
