formatted the question, moved the "doubt" in the spoiler, not to spoil the question for others...

my approach...
we compare maintenance of dirt roads with that of paved roads.
A compares dirt roads with maintaining paved roads - out
B looks good - verb parallel to verb
C maintaining dirt roads compared with how much cost paved roads - nope
D it - what does it? + FOR - nope.
E comparison FOR - nope.
