I think it should be C. A and B are out as comparison of number with city.E is ambiguous

A - Incorrect:

This option contains the wrong comparative structure as it lacks an auxiliary verb for parallel comparison: Mumbai has... other Indian city.

B - Incorrect:

This option contains the wrong comparative structure as it lacks an auxiliary verb for parallel comparison: Mumbai has... other Indian city.

C - Correct:

This option contains the correct comparative structure by including the auxiliary does.

D - Incorrect:

The use of the singular auxiliary has does not agree with the plural numbers.

E - Incorrect:
The use of more is redundant, and the comparative form of the adjective high, higher, is needed.

Took 60 Sec for the correct option and its C.

[url](A) a greater number of residences per square kilometer than any other Indian city.[/url]
Residences are compared to city which is illogical here.

(B) greater numbers of residences per square kilometer than any other Indian city.
"Numbers of" is wrong here and unidiomatic. Also comparison is not correct with city.

(C) a greater number of residences per square kilometer than does any other Indian city.
Is the correct option as Mumbai is compared to the other city and all idioms are correct here.

(D) greater numbers of residences per square kilometer than do other Indian cities.
"Numbers of" is wrong here and unidiomatic. Also comparison is not correct with city.

(E) a great per square kilometer number of residences, more than does any other Indian city.
Illogical starting of the sentence using "a great per square kilometer number of residences".

POE suits best strategy for this Question as Options A,B,D and E are easily eliminated.

Kudos if it helps anyone.

IMO C

(A) a greater number of residences per square kilometer than any other Indian city. -- Comparision issue

(B) greater numbers of residences per square kilometer than any other Indian city. -- Comparision issue


(D) greater numbers of residences per square kilometer than do other Indian cities. -- C is better

(E) a great per square kilometer number of residences, more than does any other Indian city. -- Awkward
