Here we compare salaries of master's degree graduates with salaries of bachelor's degree graduates. Hence we can eliminate A,B, and D for a wrong comparison. Between C and E the former is better since E sounds awkward. Hence answer is C

Yes C is Right .The Problem with E is that Average is modifying Annual master's Degree Program instead of Salaries.Which is Wrong. A,B,D are wrongly comparing Salaries with Degree holders.
Therefore C is The best .
