It was tough chossing between B & E ...

Whats the answer?

answer is B. The key is retaining "to". "to" is the trace of " to cost" in grammatical jargon.

For example, in 1 "is" is the trace of "is earning".

1. He is earning more pay than is any other

2. It originally seems that they cost (unraised)
3. They originally seem to cost ( raised "they")

2 and 3 are equivalent transformations.

I like a:

they turn out to cost more than they seemed (to cost).

At some point, they seemed to cost something. Now, however, they turn out to cost more than they seemed (to at that time).
