In option A So X as to Y is correct usage,
it used so x as y it is wrong. meaning also differs, we use So as adverb strongly X as to make Y .
In option B
almost as rapidly as in the glomerulus is correct usage. so it is out.
In option D,more rapidly than, used wrongly . than used after comma, makes sentence as split.
Apart from, they pronoun is ambiguous.
IN option E, so didnt follow with that or as to . they is pronoun ambiguous.
In option C almost as rapidly as correctly used. more rapidly than correct.
so option C is correct.

Another way proliferate means mutliply , here meaning is multiplying inside.
Proliferate in is correct idiomatic usage . so option A, B and D are out.
Only option C and E left out.
In option E they is ambiguou pronoun .
So option C wins.

How is the pronoun " they" creating ambiguity? in D and E?
D. almost as rapidly as in the glomerulus, and even more rapidly in the tubulointerstitium, than what they did
E. in the glomerulus almost so rapidly, and in the tubulointerstitium even more rapidly than what they did

Does not it correctly refer to "macrophages"??

A and B do not utilize the correct idiomatic form ‘so x as to y’. They are out. ‘they’ in D and E is ambiguous.

C is the right answer.
