Here the subject is Committee,which is singular. Hence the verb must be singular and pronoun replacing it should also be singular.

So, option A,B and E are out. Between C and D, C is more direct and meaningful.

C. only 40 percent of the nation’s 1 billion population were insured last year; it estimates that this year 75 percent will be.

Is According to the National Insurance Committee a prepositional phrase/modifier? If so, in C why we are given option 'It estimates'? Where It is referring to? Should not be C: "It is estimated that ...."?
