(A) which is 14 percent more than the previous year
(B) which is 14 percent higher than it was the previous year
(C) 14 percent higher than the previous yearâ€™s figure
(D) an amount that is 14 percent more than the previous year was
(E) an amount that is 14 percent higher than the previous yearâ€™s figure

Interesting one....

which modifies the year of 1992 and it is incorrect....

D and E are run on sentences i think... because they once again indicate the increase which was already stated in the first part of the sentence.....

Therefore choose C...

A and B have misplaced modifier.'which' modifies 1992 hence A and B are out.(C) has a dangling modifier hence between D and E-Correct usage is "percent higher".Hence E

C is wrong because the secdond part of the sentence - and largely offsets weak demand from Europe and Japan. needs a subject (amount). Only D and E correctly provide that. But D is wrong as there is a comparison problem. It has to be E.
