We can eliminate A and B, because they are comparing ministers to the year 1977, and much is not used for countable things.
E is also incorrect because of 1977's is redundant.
We can eliminate C because what cannot refer to percent, the survey or the ministers. This leaves D.

To find the best answer, we find four wrong answers, by POE. All the others are wrong for reasons outlined in earlier posts. I’m not a native speaker of English, but I know there is nothing wrong with ‘double the figure for.’
