I pick C. "they", "it" and "there" seem ambiguous.

Agree with C
Proper usage of conjunction "and" along with verb tense is what is tested here.

When you are combining sentences after you use a conjunction you need a pronoun that correctly refer to the anticedent which in our case happens to be the subject. Only choice C satisfies all these conditions.

What is the OA?


E can not be.

"and there will be an estimated...... and surpass China....." It is not parallel

It must be C

C is the best.

D & E out as sentence starting with there are not prefered in GMAT.
A Estimated as is not the correct idiom
B they ---pronoun mismatch

we are not comparing with population of india.

they is ambigous in B.
inA. It is refering to population of india, which can not have 1.6million population

In D and E there is ambigous.

So C is the only right choice.

Strongly support for C.

"The country" is necessary due to the appearance of the phrase "the world’s most populous nation" at the end of the sentence

A. it will probably have what is estimated as probably have and estimated ..either of them is redundant, estimated as is incorrect
B. they are likely to have they has no antecedent
C. the country will probably have correct...the country is used stylishly to ref to India
D. there will probably be there makes the sentence awkward
E. there will be an estimatesame as D
thats my 2 cents :)
