Hi Saurabh, I am not an expert but as I can see you figured out most of the issues and were stuck between B & D.
The reason why B is wrong is because of the comparison issue.

In option B, The monthly subscription is compared with the number of subscription, this is the reason why B is wrong. Hope it solves your doubt.

B. exceed the number of subscriptions of (Wrong because monthly subscrpitions are being compared to number of subscriptions.)
C. have been in excess over the subscriptions of (The context is set in present tense. Hence have been is wrong.)
D. exceed the subscriptions of (Right comparison)
E. number higher than the subscriptions of (wrong because subscriptions number is being compared to subscriptions)

National Geographic magazine still remains the most popular magazine; its monthly subscriptions exceed any other magazine in the same genre.

Meaning:

1. National Geographic magazine still remains the most popular magazine
2. National Geographic's monthly subscriptions exceed any other magazine in the same genre
We still can gasp intended meaning with wrong comparison here, the meaning is National Geographic's monthly subscriptions exceed subscriptions of any other magazine.

Errors and POE:


Whenever we see the comparison question, we have to find the heart of this comparison and make sure that this comparison is logically and grammatically // to each other.

A. exceed -- monthly subscriptions vs any other magazine itself

B. exceed the number of subscriptions of -- monthly subscriptions vs the number of subscriptions

C. have been in excess over the subscriptions of -- monthly subscriptions vs the subscriptions
(the way this answer is constructed is too wordy, let's keep it so far)

E. number higher than the subscriptions of -- monthly subscriptions number vs the subscriptions
(moreover is past is missing a verb - cannot stand as independent clause)


D. exceed the subscriptions of -- monthly subscriptions [b]vs the subscriptions[/b]

Between (C) and (D), (D) is clear and concise

Attachment:

(D) is the answer
