B........ We need to make the right comparison

The right idiom is: as likely as

So, C, D & E are out.

Answer A is comparing Americans with the national average , which is wrong.

yea B is the sure shot.

Case of idioms. "as likely as"

the option starting with "to be" appears attractive but fails on "as likely as"
