B. In Corporation X, a larger percentage of the revenues is spent on insurance than is spent on employee salaries in Corporation Y.

A makes the comparison well.

In B, "in Corporation X" indicates that a larger percentage of the revenues of X is spent on employee salaries in Corporation Y.

In C, "they" wrongly refers to "Corporation X"

In D, the sentence is awkward.

In D, the meaning is unclear.

X spends larger % on ..... than Y does on .....

Logical and correct comparison. Parallelism is maintained in the sentence.
