Since the comparison is between the hurricanes in the Atlantic basin(in the past decade)
and the hurricanes in the prior 50 years, we need to make sure the above 2 entities are
compared.

When compared to - is an incorrect usage.
Of the lot, Option D(than those during) is the best option
because we are comparing the strength using stronger then!
