:yes buddies, the answer is "E"
It corrects the comparision fallacy of original answer as well as
it supplies a subject "an amount" for clause "that is 14 percent higher than the previous year’s figure and largely offsets weak demand from Europe and Japan"

Pals, Please supply your rationale to back your choice. The maneuver and the reasons makes the dicussion more important and interesting.

Happy solving,
Dharmin
