Compare to: To say that one thing is like another thing, often to try to explain what one is like, but sometimes as an insult; for example, â€œMy friend didn't know what a pomelo was, so I compared it to a grapefruit. Then she was able to understand what it was.â€

Don't care about the meaning of "compare with" and "compare to". You can discard A and C because "compare as" is unidiomatic. B should be wron because "compara between X and Y" is unidomatic. D and E remain. What does "it" refer in E?. Therefore D should be the answer.

Almost selected B
Between B & D it has to be D.

D,

because idiom compare.. to is used right, and afterwards bouncing is modifying correctly the term an automobile racing
