419 needs a suffix of 'times', so drop A, B, C

D is weird because it goes:
A recent review of pay scales indicates that CEO's who now earn on avarage 419 times more pay than blue-collar workers, as compared to 42 times their pay, the ratio in 1980

So E. E is a little odd. It should be earn instead of earning.. Is there a typo?

D & E clear the problem of 419 the pay and 419 times the pay, you are comparing times of pay with times of pay (Apple compared to Apple). Btween D and E, E sounds correct as in D there is an addition of who which makes the sentence ambiguous.

D it is.

There is no full stop at the end. So the sentence is incomplete to the reader. D fits best among the five choices.
