Agree on C..

Also it is the only choice, which contains the neccessary "charge more than other companys do".

I would also go with C.

When I read the sentence, I knew that one of the answer choice has to contain the word "do", so I skimmed and only found C. I just read the other ones, just to double-check.

OA is C

OE:

Explanation:
> Spot the Error:
Look for Comparative triggers. The use of more ・than・indicates the comparison.
Rule and Fix:
A comparison must be of two similar things and must be balanced. The comparison is between what certain those companies ... charge and their companies A proper comparison will compare noun to nouns or verbs to verbs. This comparison improperly compares what one company charges to other companies・
POE:
A, D, and E.
Chunk and Compare:
Compare B to C.
B compares what "those companies・harge" to what "other companies・ave" which is not a logical comparison.
Eliminate B.
Reread your choice:
Choose C.

"Those" has no clear referant. Eliminate A, B and E.

C is better than D because it maintains the correct comparison:

[companies that .... ] + charge than do (i.e. charge) + [companies

I agree. C must be the answer. It is a matter of what you compate to. nouns to nouns, verbs to verbs, etc...
