I go with D.

E- I think is incorrect 'coz "and the employment rate" of what?

Dutch Economy is being compared with econom of each country France, Ger and Britan. E, IMHO, sounds as though Freance, Brit, and Ger have several economies!

It's Between D and E. I will go with D.

In "E" - it appears the Dutch economy is being compared with multiple economies of each of the listed countries - does not seem right to me

In D, I must admit, the extra "that" in "....with the unemployment rate that has remained..." seems suspicious

Britan, France, and Germany represent multiple countries, so economies should be the correct comparison.

my vote also for E

in D, we need a plural noun "economies" and E does that just fine.

Matt, good question
Kannad is not mutually intelligible with Hindi, Urdu or Punjabi. Kannad is totally different from these languages! By large, there is similarity (debatable ) among south Indian languages. Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam are other south Indian languages.
I appreciate your curiosity , actually there are around 50 languages spoken in India & it's really interesting to know more than one language.
