D is not correct as in this option, "Rate" is being compared with "Countries".


Read it like this:

Our rate of ... being exceeded only by ... (some) Countries

So you can see, the rate is being compared with countries.

If there was an option ' is among the highest in the industrialized world, exceeded only by' would that be correct ?
IMO that would be wrong because it would be comparing rate to country ? Am I right ?

"(B) is among the highest in the industrialized world, exceeded only by that of"

the problem is "exceeded"........which noun does it modify ? only -ed modifier must modify preceding noun (i think)....it can modify the highest !?
