A is the answer

rest all change the meaning of intended sentence.
Subtle difference but enough to eliminate all except A.

IMO A.
We need a "that" before 'there' .. which leaves us with A and E.
E is not showing any contrast. Hence A.

A cannot be correct as 'much' is inappropriate.

C looks fine.

E doesn't show the contrast.

B is wordy.

D is chucked out because C is short and concise .

Please correct me if I'm wrong. What is the OE?

Dear GMATonMind,

I'm happy to respond. :-) I don't have the highest opinion of this SC question, but at least it does have a clear OA of (A).

My friend, I suspect what confuses you is the alternate meaning of the word "however." See this blog:
The Word “However” on the GMAT
As I explain in that blog, the word "however" has a common well-known meaning and a second, more sophisticated meaning that confused many GMAT takers. Used in the secondary sense, the construction "however much" is 100% correct.

If you have any question after you read that blog, please let me know.

Mike :-)
