42. According to a survey of graduating medical students conducted by the Association of American Medical Colleges, minority graduates are nearly four times more likely than are other graduates in planning to practice in socioeconomically deprived areas.
(A) minority graduates are nearly four times more likely than are other graduates in planning to practice
(B) minority graduates are nearly four times more likely than other graduates who plan on practicing
(C) minority graduates are nearly four times as likely as other graduates to plan on practicing
(D) it is nearly four times more likely that minority graduates rather than other graduates will plan to practice
(E) it is nearly four times as likely for minority graduates than other graduates to plan to practice

I feel the answer should be B. but the correct answer is C. Isn't C changing the meaning of the sentence???
Also please tell the usage of "more likely" and "as likely as", if C is the correct answer.

Thanks.

I think its "C", but I dont have reasons to explain this.

Guys!! Kindly explain the correct answer by mentioning the error in each like parallelism, verb agreement, diction etc, I will be grateful for such explaination

B- states that "other graduates who plan on practicing" but it is actually the minority graduates who plan to practice and (C) corrects this error

well ok... I am wrong somewhere but I dont get the point.
As per my understanding, the underlined portion conveys that minority students are more interested in .... as compared to other graduates...
Am i right?

then saying as likely as... changes the meaning.
