C is correct. The correct idiom is as high as or higher than.

Yes, C.

The sentence looks difficult. But, answer options make the correct option clear. It is the levels of serum production that are more than thousand times higher.

Hence, possible usage are "higher than" or "as high as".

Only option C correctly uses it.
