Investors base their choice [on what?] comparisons.

This clearly calls for a noun to follow.

Roughly speaking, you base your reasoning on data.

Hence C.

(C)

A noun has to be basis of any judgement here. The only noun available is comparison.

My Final answer is A. I am not sure about the idiom used here. Is it â€œwith or toâ€

I was going thru some old posts and I noticed that some guys( Bhai,Vithal) got it wrong.

The official ans is C.

People "base their choice on comparisons " .....of X with Y.
Here X and Y are similar...so we use "comparison with"

"compare to" not appropriate here.
