Its clearly between D & E.

Do we clearly need the word other? I dont see a difference without the word "other". It is still a month to month comparison.

Comparsion in E is better sales of fund shares is compared to "what" has ITG had estimated.

Those who think E is the answer, can you please explain why we need "other"?

Even my choice is E.

When we compare objects of same class (months in this case), to exclude the main object, which we were comparing, from the rest, the word 'other' should be used. It is not required in cases where the object is compared to itself.

If we don't have a what, we actually end up comparing sales of fund shares to the industry trade group.
