Can you give official explanation for this question?
My reasoning was:
A) In the thirty years since casino gambling has been legal beyond the state of Nevada, per capita wagering for residents of that state has risen markedly, though less than half as high as the amount in those states that received approval. Seems ok lets keep

B) Over thirty years after casino gambling became legal beyond Nevada, per capita wagering for Nevada residents continues to rise markedly, though at less than half the rate as high as in those states approved. Over and after used in same sentence. Redundancy and comma missing

C) Over thirty years after casino gambling became legal beyond Nevada, per capita wagering of Nevada residents continues to increase markedly, though at a rate less than half as high as in any state approved.
similar error as in B

D) In the thirty years since casino gambling was legalized beyond Nevada, per capita wagering of Nevada residents has risen markedly, though at a rate less than half as high as those states approved.
Illogical comparison, rates are compared to states

E) Over thirty years, after casino gambling became legal beyond Nevada, per capita wagering of Nevada residents continues to rise markedly, though at rates less than half as high as in states approved.
sentence seemed ok to me but somehow the last prt compares per capita income with rates
