Can someone explain me the difference between option C & E???
Is there any change in meaning in option C??
Though E seems more suitable for this question.

Equal is used only for absolute numeric terms such as 1 plus 2 is 3

Usage " as many as " is correctly comparing the extent ( But not severely specific about the number )

.........job training and general education for eight million people, as many as are enrolled in the nation’s four-year colleges and universities.

Hope this helps...
