Two things to note here:

The pronoun ‘it’ referring to the earthquake in the east, creates muddle. It looks as though the said earthquake traveled from the east to the west and then we are comparing the devastations. This is wrong. The comparison is between the damage of one earthquake of a magnitude on one side and the damage of another earthquake of a similar magnitude on the other. That is the reason, we should drop A, B and E, which have the vexing pronoun ‘it’

Which is the appropriate one? 100 times the area or 100 times greater area? Both are correct, though mean different things. Therefore, context is the decider. Be concerned about what the original text says. If it says 100 times, then take 100 times. If it says 100 times grater than, then take 100 times greater than. Now you can confidently drop C. C also says 100 times …. than, which is a grammatical flaw. D is the pick


Please guide me where I am wrong> should not this sentence contain would instead of will as it is a conditional statement?
