BC&D are out:

b) of more than five hundred thousand and of more
implies a population of more investors..

c) more than five hundred thousand and greater
"greater investors"

d) greater than five hundred thousand and greater
"greater investors"

I'd go for E if it said "with more" but as it is we have "with investors .. than 20 years ago" Can't be, so the answer must be A.

Liverpool has slowly emerged from its post-industrial decline as a newly thriving city with a population of over five hundred thousand and more investors interested in large urban renewal projects than would have been thought possible twenty years ago.

A) of over five hundred thousand and more

E) of more than five hundred thousand, with

we need comparison to cover for the bolded part in the sentence.
(E) does not allow the comparison by using 'with' whereas (A) does using 'more'.

Good one Eyunni...

more ...than - idiomatic

Also, something to add, I feel of over is far better than of more than

tarek, what's the source for this question?

Per newspaper syleguides, over should only be used for spacial relationships. Not for amounts.
