The choice is between A and B.

C,D, E are all wrong.. because of redundancy of due and because...
And E changes the meaning of the sentence. In E, due is used as a verb rather than an infinitive.

I will go with B.

A again tries to use due as a verb.

A.

B is not correct because it has "than" but we need comaritives such as more, larger, greater, longer etc to make the proper use of than. so B cannot be correct. all other choices are obviously wrong.

Why I picked B is because DUE seems to act like an verb.

But I would accept A as an OA...
