A E are out. 'more' requires a 'than' for comparison. Thats missing
B also has a comparative 'greater' but no 'than'. Wrong.
C most is correctly used as a superlative here
D post,highest in prestige is wrong construction. As the post is no general post and we are specific about it,it would have been correct if Post would have been followed by 'that'
