Singular pronoun that cannot refer to plural vessels, hence the use of that is wrong in options a,b,d
In option c as much in is the wrong idiom, option e corrects all the above mistakes

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:

Choices A and B use the singular pronoun ‘that’ with the plural verb form ‘remain’. ‘Almost as much in value’ in C and D is idiomatically incorrect. Choice E is the correct answer

What does 'those' refer to in E?

'Those' refers to 'values' of glassblowers.

In option E what does "those" refer to?
Based on the pronoun it seems that the sentence means "valued almost as much as the values of the remaining old-fashioned glassblowers".
To me it seems wrong. I think it should be "that of" because we are referring to the collective value of the remaining old-fashioned glassblowers.
