a. as varied as
b. as varied as are
c. as varied as those of
d. that are as varied as
e. that are varied as

In simple form, try reading the sentence as - [strike]So called[/strike]Green taxes[strike], which exact a price for the use of polluting or nonrenewable fuels,[/strike]are having positive effect on the environment and natural resource base in countries as varied as China, Netherlans, Brasil.

Here China, Netherlands and Brazil are infact the countries....So there is no necessity to use those of / that are / are.

IMO A.
