I'm stuck between D and E.

d) more rapidly during dreams than during the period of time when a person is awake
Well formed sentence. But we are talking about eye movement when waking up not when a person is entirely awake.
e) more rapidly when dreaming than when waking
This seems to be the best answer. Although it can be better written...more rapidly when dreaming than when a person is waking up.

I go for E.

Though D is wordy but it looks better to me.

i would think it would be E... but just noticed OA is D

close call. the only reason i can think of for D is that waking cannot be just used as a parallel with dreaming since it is usually used as a verb and for a short time "while awake" is what is usual for the waking hours.... anyone else can explain how the lengthy D is right?

B incorrectly associates ‘more rapidly’ with dreaming rather than with eye movement.a,c and e incorrectly refer to the process of waking rather than the period of time of being awake.Hence d is correct.

i was also confused between d and e,
i believe there is nothing called as ' i am waking
it has to be ' i am awake'.
d seems to be the only right answer, grammatically.

I picked D because 'waking' and 'when waking' is awkward in C and E.
