A) maintaining state parks cost far more than other state land- The comparison is wrong- Maintaining vs land?-- So Eliminate.

B) state parks costs far more to maintain than other state land does- State parks (plural) and costs(singular)- SV error- Hence Eliminate.

C) maintaining state parks costs far more than other state land- Same as B. Also comparison error- Eliminate

D) state parks cost far more to maintain than other state land does- Seems good- The subject(stake parks) and verb(cost) agree- Comparison is also perfect. so hold.

E) to maintain state parks is far more expensive than other state land- Comparison error. To maintain vs other stand land- So Eliminate.


The answer is D.
