because reasoning is different and you need to adjust your CR skills to GMAT .

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

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 !?
