A looks correct to me

B is incorrect for use of had been
C - same as B
D - incorrect for use of 'more wealthy than him'
E - 'than he' ... should be 'than him'

C and B must be wrong since "had been" and "was dominated" do not agree with e/other.
D is wrong coz "more" can't be an ellipsis for the other two "more"s .
E is wrong coz we need "is " after "he"

A looks somewhat redundant but is probably the best for being less evil.
