(A) who was thrust into a world that was dominated by wealthier, better-educated, and more polished people than him ==> "He" is required

(B) who had been thrust into a world that was dominated by more wealthy, educated, and polished people than him ==> "more wealthy" is not idiomatic

(C) who had been thrust into a world dominated by wealthier, better-educated, and people more polished than he was ==> last clause is not grammatically correct..."and people"

(D) thrust into a world dominated by more wealthy, educated, and polished people than him ==> same as B

(E) thrust into a world dominated by wealthier, better-educated, and more polished people than he ==> correct

- dominated by wealthier ....than
- (dominated by) him

E means:
who was thrust into a world that was
- dominated by wealthier ....than
- he (was)

Only E uses the proper comparison subject with subject.
