E.

as people are countable, we need to use "greater number" rather than "greater amount"

E is best. People is a countable noun, so it should be used with number not amount.

amount is wrong as 'people' is countable. a,b,c are out.
d is awkward.

e is the best choice.

A, B, C out: cannot use amount for a countable noun"people"
D out: ambiguous with no pronoun
E is fine

larger wud be a wrong modifier here . a number can be greater .larger is more specifically used for size orientation but u will always say 5 is greater than 3 .subtle difference but indeed a big one to make a difference to an answer choice
hence E

a) an even greater amount of people
b) an even larger amount of people
c) an amount of people even greater
d) a number of even larger
e) an even greater number of people

First, we split between "amount of people" and "number of people". Clearly, "number of people" is correct
A, B, C are out.
D changes meaning because "larger" is an adjective that modifies "people". So it means "larger people" go to the concert.

E is correct. because
(1) greater number ==> correct idiom
(2) number of people ==> correct.

Hope it helps.
