B. For me, though the question is not written properly.

"CEO's now earn" doesnot make sense.
"CEOs now earn" does make sense.

B 'a ratio that compares to 42 times' is awkward
C 'as compared to 42 times their pay, the ratio' is awkward
D,E are out. reveal CEO's... is wrong.

A is best of 5 lousy choices.
