The underlined part must be started with "natural gas" because natural gas is the subject of this sentence. So, D, E out
The intended comparison, between two options metioned here, is to be established through correct idom - "than". Only A has that correct idom. B,C OUT
A is the answer.

The sentence has two split to consider. Option A has the correct implications.

Just to add to that, if it's not clear enough. What G800 means in terms of idiom is "less...than....".

The beginning of the sentence requires "natural gas" for the start (what was widely used to fuel home heating systems?). A,B,C are left. B is really bad because it states that natural gas did all that stuff as oil (so natural gas can be oil?). C is missing a comparison word (natural gas did less...where's the than?). So A is left.

the intial modifier : Though widely used to fuel ....................... ( What is widely used?)

Guess natural gas : This eliminates D n E

Between A / B / C :

This construction makes sense : ...............X (natural Gas ) has accounted for less of the energy consumed THAN has Y (oil)

Leading to A = my take
