777. The man was always aware, sometimes proudly and sometimes resentfully, that he was a small-town Midwesterner who was thrust into a world that was dominated by wealthier, better-educated, and more polished people than him.
(A) who was thrust into a world that was dominated by wealthier, better-educated, and more polished people than him
(B) who had been thrust into a world that was dominated by more wealthy, educated, and polished people than him
(C) who had been thrust into a world dominated by wealthier, better-educated, and people more polished than he was
(D) thrust into a world dominated by more wealthy, educated, and polished people than him
(E) thrust into a world dominated by wealthier, better-educated, and more polished people than he

I understand the pronoun part of key to this question, but I am more intereseted in knowing whether there is any problem colored part in choice D.

Press +1 Kudos, if you think my post gave u a tiny tip.

Each of the words should come in comparative form:
Wealthier, better-educated, and more polished

He had to win- he was more prepared, smart and intelligent than all others. This sentence is wrong- correct form would be : he was more prepared, smarter and more intelligent than all others - each adjective should come in its comparative form if the subject is being compared to others on each of these attributes.
