Extreme anomalies subject, so plural verb needed (A, C) out.

D
Compares rainfall with year, so out D is out

B
Will drop greatly below last year’s.... what??? Should be level but comparison is not proper because it comapres drop with drop...

Does not make sense....

So the answer is E

Subject - Extreme anomalies
Verb - are
On this basis - eliminate option A ,C.

A. be much lower this year than last as the extreme anomalies of positive sea level pressure measured at Darwin between March and June is

B. drop greatly this year below last year's as the extreme anomalies of positive sea level pressure measured at Darwin between March and June are - rainfall can't drop either level or rate can drop.

C be much lower this year than for last as the extreme anomalies of positive sea level pressure measured at Darwin between March and June is

D. be much lower this year than last, the extreme anomalies of positive sea level pressure measured at Darwin between March and June are - Two IC are joined by comma , it should be comma + FANBOYS.

E. be much lower this year than last as the extreme anomalies of positive sea level pressure measured at Darwin between March and June are
