A. I think it's because this is an apples and orange question. It is trying to compare independent institutions with others.

I would pick E. Idiom "as many...as"

This is a classic example of GMAT excess 'wordiness'!

I agree with gmatt73 - although E sounds a bit better - the answer should be D as it is the correct usage of the idiom and it is concise. Also, I think the verb tense for charging may be incorrect.

so D
