For a detailed discussion of parallelism, and typical parallelism mistake on the GMAT SC, see this blog:
http://magoosh.com/gmat/2013/parallelis ... orrection/
That blog also contains a full explanation of this particular question.

Let me know if there are any parallelism questions.

The only parallel structure and correct modifier is found in Option B, hence the answer

fewer jobs and large number is the only correct option
Also consistent not with ... but with makes the idiom usage correct.
