What's wrong with C

when you have as great as or greater than and atleast as great as then as great as or greater than is 99% wrong 'cos it is wordy. But check out the the other constructs too.

E should be the right one.

1) here at least usage is preferred for concise

2) for parallelism.

E for me.

A. Use of â€˜isâ€™ is not right.
B. Use of word â€˜thatâ€™ seems to be an attempt to further classify the phrase prior to underline part instead we need comparison.
C. Comparing apple and oranges. Need a word â€˜byâ€™.
D. Again comparison issues.
E. Just fine.

E!

"as .... as .." Correct idiomatic expression. Hence, A, B & C are out, leaving with on D & E.

(D) as air conditioning's: Unclear as to what part of air conditioning is refered to.
