Congestion pricing, the practice of charging a fee for driving into the busiest areas of a city at the busiest times; it

• at the busiest times; it has more support from economists than do politicians
• at the busiest times, has more support among economists than among politicians
• at the busiest times; it has more support among economists than among politicians
• at the busiest times, has more support from economists than do politicians
• at the busiest times, it has more support from economists than from among politicians

congestion pricing needs a verb without which the clause will be in complete hence we need a comma after modifying clause not semi colon
eliminate A,C
we eliminate E - coz we need a verb after the modifying clause not subject "it"

Between B and D - B has a parallel construction also it does not distorts the meaning

+1 B

• at the busiest times, has more support from economists than do politicians
• at the busiest times, it has more support from economists than from among politicians

In A it is ambiguous , it refers to the CP or the city ? => eliminate A;In E , it is introduced incorrectly and the verb is missing, its a run on => E is out ; X more than Y is the idiom that is needed to arrive at the correct answer. Thus, B wins.

• at the busiest times; it has more support from economists than do politicians - fragment error
• at the busiest times, has more support among economists than among politicians - correct
• at the busiest times; it has more support among economists than among politicians - fragment error
• at the busiest times, has more support from economists than do politicians - comparison error
• at the busiest times, it has more support from economists than from among politicians - modifier error
