What does the phrase "nearly 25 percent......." modifying here? It it modifying 41 million tons or rice production?
How to avoid such confusions? And if I am not wrong "nearly 25 percent...." is an adverbial modifier and in this case it is modifying a noun.

If we vertically scan options, we have comparison error, so go option by option and check parallelism.

In option A, "those......." refers to "production", which is singular. Eliminate

In Option B, "1978 harvest" is compared to "production".....Correct

In Option C, "1978" is compared to "production" We cannot compare "year" to "production".......Eliminate

In Option D, "1978" is compared to "production" We cannot compare "year" to "production".......Eliminate

In Option E, "that....." refers to production....."production of India's 1978 harvest" does not make sense. ....... Eliminate
