We need the verb 'are', so D wins against E.

Official Explanation

When comparing two things, the comparative “-er” is used rather than the superlative “-est,” which is only used when comparing more than two things. The adverb “than” is used with the comparative, not the conjunction “then” (B), which indicates time sequence (e.g. “and then…”), cause and effect (e.g. “If…,then…”). Adding “are” (D) is unnecessary.

Answer: E
