Hello najsh2 - Please find the explanation as per below.

North America’s carbon footprint is growing larger in relation to Europe’s; the amount of carbon dioxide emitted per capita in the United States is up to three times of Britain’s emission.

The sentence here is comparing - the amount of CO2 emitted per capita in US Vs the amount of CO2 emitted per capita in Britain

(A) up to three times of Britain’s emission ====> This is an illogical comparison - comparing the amount of CO2 emitted per capita in US with the entire emission of Britain

(B) as much as thrice that of Britain’s emission ====> This is an illogical comparison - comparing the amount of CO2 emitted per capita in US with the entire emission of Britain

(C) as much as three times that emitted in Britain ====> Correct - As it is comparing the amount of CO2 emitted per capita in US Vs the amount of CO2 emitted per capita in Britain

(D) up to three times what Britons emit ====> This is an illogical comparison - comparing the amount of CO2 emitted per capita in US with emission done by British people. This does not make any sense

(E) up to thrice the British emission ====> This is an illogical comparison - comparing the amount of CO2 emitted per capita in US with the entire emission of British people

Hope this helps!
