C (3). Those is the correct pronoun restatement for cars.

S-V agreement cars-are. D and E convolute the word order.

4 and 5 somehow shifts the meaning of original sentence. The original sentence mentions an improved charactersitic of small cars, whereas 4 and 5 mention the "more " in quantity.
their in 1 and 2 are ambiguous.
I'm left with C.

Step 1:
2/3 split between options (A,B,C) and (D,E)

Step 2:
Split between options (A,B) and C (their)

Option C is the correct answer

C it is...
A can be eliminated because of their..whom does 'their' refer to.. Also now is redundant...
D and E change the meaning of the sentence by introducing 'fuel efficient small cars'..
Between B and C.. B can be eliminated for the same reason as A...
left with C...

+1 C

"any other" is required to exclude the present.
