C.

A is wrong for comparing with a large city.
B, D, are wring for using 'higher numbers'
E sounds awkward ..

So C remains.

Here we must focus on number rather than numberS.

"A number of" - plural noun - do not affect to "other city" because we'r comparing LA to other city.

Clearly, C is best.

My answer is C.
A compares family dwellings per capita with any other large city. Wrong comparison.
B. "higher numbers" is not idiomatic. Also wrong comparison.
C. Is correct. Compares LA's higher number of family dwellings per capita with other city's family dwellings per capita.
D. "higher numbers" is not idiomatic. Wrong Would love a better explanation on this though
E. "high per capita number of X" is not the same as "a higher number of X per capita" Changes meaning. Wrong. Also, comparison is awkward.

What is the subtle difference between do / does in C/ D?
Is it related to verb tense or subject-verb number agreement?
