Errors ...
1) found X or found that X
Whenever you're talking of a clause, use found THAT. But if you are writing found NOUN so found Ram in the market. Here we are talking of a clause, so found THAT
2) Both X as well as Y is wrong..
Correct is both X and Y
3) AND compared with.... parallels compared with FOUND
X and Y found that.... And compared with....
Also BUT compared with .. shows contrast, which is wrong.

In a paper published in 2010, Kate Pickett and Richard Wilkinson found about one in ten people in Japan and Germany suffered some form of mental illness in the year they studied and compared with one in five Britons and Australians and one in four Americans.

1) Kate Pickett and Richard Wilkinson found about one in ten people in Japan and Germany suffered some form of mental illness in the year they studied and compared with- as if they studied and they compared with one in five britons

2) Kate Pickett and Richard Wilkinson found about one in ten people in Japan and Germany suffering some form of mental illness in the year they studied, compared to

3) Kate Pickett and Richard Wilkinson found that about one in ten people in Japan and Germany suffered some form of mental illness in the year they studied, but compared with: use of but does not make any sense.

4) both Kate Pickett as well as Richard Wilkinson found that about one in ten people in Japan and Germany suffered some form of mental illness in the year they studied, compared to : both & as well as are redundant

5) Kate Pickett and Richard Wilkinson found that about one in ten people in Japan and Germany suffered some form of mental illness in the year they studied, compared with :

between B & E, picked E because suffered from.... in the year they Studied does make more sense.

Answer : E

Split 1: Fount about / Found that
Found about one in ten people changes the intended meaning - Incorrect
Fount that one in ten people conveys the correct meaning - Correct
Eliminate A, B

Split 2:
but compared with / compared with
But brings in unnecessary contrast in the sentence and changes the intended meaning - Incorrect
Eliminate C

Between D and E
Both X and Y is the correct idiom usage
Both X as well as Y is incorrect
Eliminate D

Hence E is the correct answer

In a paper published in 2010, Kate Pickett and Richard Wilkinson found about one in ten people in Japan and Germany suffered some form of mental illness in the year they studied and compared with one in five Britons and Australians and one in four Americans.

First, when we report the results of a study, theses, hypothesis, findings, and the like, it is customary to introduce the effects in a subordinate clause introduced by 'that.'

Einstein's theory proposes that all the cosmic bodies bound by the 'Relativity' theory
His study proves that marine fish does not grow well in fresh water

However, we can also drop the subordinate conjunction 'that; but the structure will then involve an infinitive or a gerund
Einstein's theory proposes all the cosmic bodies to be bound by the 'Relativity' theory
His study proves marine fish not (to grow well/growing well) in fresh water.
That is the reason that we can drop A and B.

Second, when we write a simple sentence containing one IC followed by a modifier, then we should never use a co-ordinate conjunction such as 'and' or 'but.' Else, the sentence will turn unparallel. C is gone.

D is unidiomatic, as Chetan has pointed out, leaving E as the only reasonable choice
