OA is B. Do so is correctly used to refer back to take their A level exams.

An eagle eye question

Watch the students...their VS students....their

The students cannot go with their so A,E out
C and D used wrong comparison as they are comparing two different regions

B is the best

E says: In England, a larger percentage of the students take their A Level exams in college than the Northern Ireland students do.--->E gives a nonsensical meaning and hence is WRONG. E seems to suggest that the ENTIRE EPISODE of "a larger percentage of the students take their A Level exams in college than the Northern Ireland students do" is HAPPENING in ENGLAND !! in other words E seems to suggest that EVEN Northern Ireland students are IN ENGLAND !!
