A is the correct choice.

This question mixes the comparison and parallelism concepts in choices. A passes the test.

The Question tests the concept of parallelism.

Choice A) is the correct. The parallel tag is "either" + "or".
One should look to compare from the right hand side of the the parallel elements.

Either sweden or finland. - Correct
Either in Sweden or in Finland - Correct.
Either in sweden or finland - Incorrect.
Either sweden or in Finland - Incorrect

Choice B) Incorrect as explained above.

Choice C ) D) & E) The Correct Idiom is - More X than Y and not More X than those Y.

Parts to compare in the given sentence- Increase was more apparent in Norway than in Sweden or Finland.

A)than in either Sweden or Finland. Correct comparisons
B)than either in Sweden or Finland. wrong idiom usage. Either in X or in Y is the right idiom.
C)than those in Sweden or Finland. Those is a wrong plural referent
D)than among those in either Sweden or Finland. among those compares what to the increase?
E)than it was either in Sweden or Finland. Wrong Idiom usage.
