Both GmatNinja and Ron Purewal have mentioned time and again that ideally there is no difference between “compared to” and “compared with” and the usage is driven by the meaning in the sentence.

In C and E, comparing is used in the form of verb+ing modifier which modifies the whole clause coming after the comma.

Option B : use of in is not required

Option D : As is neither functioning here as conjunction or as preposition.

Option A is the most concise form
Using past participle form of compare —> compared with

Please always underline sentence correction questions so that users can find which part needs to be corrected.
