The last part of sentence compares by stating "more than any other nation in the world will" which means that we are comparing Country with Country and hence United States/country should feature in the comparison in the underline.

"It" should ideally refer to population since "population" is the subject of the previous clause. But meaning wise it should refer to USA since comparison ois made between countries. Therefore A is incorrect

SajjadAhmad wrote:
B they are likely to have
There is no plural noun that "they" can refer to. Both population and USA are singular

SajjadAhmad wrote:
C the country will probably have
This is the correct option for comparing country with country

SajjadAhmad wrote:
D there will probably be
Here "100 million" population is getting compared with "any other country" which is incorrect

Same error as D
