IMO, C.

The comma is not needed.
If the sentence were reverse, probably the comma would be required.

OA?

B for me.

I feel studied is the write word for preparing for test.

E is the answer.....debates are welcome. Even I didn't choose E the 1st time

Choice (A) incorrectly uses the comparative than instead of the adverb then.
Choice (B) changes read to studied for no reason.
Choice (C) drops then/than altogether and thus takes away the reference to a specific time.
Choice (D) repositions then in the sentence and creates an awkward construction.
Choice (E) is the answer since it correctly changes than to then.
