I'd probably go wtih D.

A and B are out b/c they don't follow the idiom: Such...As...

E is out because it doesn't follow the idiom: As...as...

Leaves us with C or D.

D appears to be more accurate. C has the term "are" which doesn't match up with "petroleum that is in conventional spots".

A/B out . like cannot be used for examples.

LEts break the structure.

Experts estimate that ten times as much A exists in sources such as X.Y and Z .... in B.

as are <- Don't need are
as <= CORRECT comparison
than <= ten times more/less A exists then we could have selected this choice.

The answer has to be D in my opinion.

A. Ruled out - like
B. Ruled out - like
C. Ruled out - as are
D. Correct
E. Ruled out - as

The correct usage should contain : "as much ..... as" and "such as"

definiteky D
A and B are out bcos such as should be used for giving example. like is used while making comparisons. E is wrong bcos correct usage is "as much in ....as in". so use of than is wrong. That leaves C and D. in c, the use of are is wrong bcos petrolium exists.....(singular). D is the best
