One in five spent implies a share of the one in five, whereas one in five is spent does not connote the percentage. Hope this is clear.

I could narrow it down to B & E. Went with B.
Is there any glaring error with B?

In America nearly one in every five dollars spent is on health care, no other country spends a larger share.

A) In America nearly one in every five dollars spent is on health care, no other country spends a larger share.,no other country spends a larger share is an independent clause. It needs a connector like and or ;
B) In America nearly one in every five dollars is spent on health care, a share larger than in any other country. There's a subtle change in meaning. It implies that 1 (something) in every five dollars is spent on health care. Because 1(something) is not clear, ",a share larger than..." doesn't make sense.
C) America spends nearly one in every five dollars on health care, larger than any other country.compares 1 in 5 dollars to a country.
D) America spends nearly one in every five dollars is on health care, a larger share than any other country. spends ...dollars is on health care isn't grammatica
E) In America nearly one in every five dollars spent is on health care, a larger share than in any other country.Correct. Compares the right things

Do Kudos if this helped!

I would appreciate a clearer explanation for B if anyone can!
