KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:

D

The plural pronoun their incorrectly refers to the singular Norway. Their should be its. So (A) and (C) are out. (B) corrects this error but changes reflection to the more awkward being a reflection of. (E), too, uses the proper pronoun, but the word greater changes the meaning of the sentence. That leaves (D), which is the correct choice.
