I'll go with D for ||ism in comparing percentages.

Is it C?
I feel "it" in A is ambiguous.
C is more clear though it's wordy.
Moreover, it has || constructions.

Over 75 percent of the energy produced in France derives from nuclear power,whereas nuclear power accounts for just over 33 percent of the energy produced in Germany.

D

C is also close but its not ||.
We are concerned about energy form nuclear power not the nuclear power.

Are you sure you by mistake did not at a different Q and A pair?

I cannot fathom how A can be correct. A does not tell 33 percent of what??

B T W, Gmatprep should have the OE. Can you please kindly post the OE?

Whoa, I totally goofed. I meant the answer is C. Btw, the new GMATPrep software does not offer any explanations.

D is wrong because neglects the "produced in" which is available in C

Even I have opted for D ...fr parallelism ..
Sentence intend to compare nuclear power produced in two countries rather than nuclear power of two countries ...and this logic makes D a wrong choice .
Hope it makes sense ..

I thought it was C, because whereas seperates two clauses and they do not have to be parallel

Tough choice between C and D.

A: "it" is ambigious.
B/E: Compared?

Obviously C has better construction.

Yes C is wordy but it preserves the meaning well. A could be ambiguous because is it 33% of the energy produced in France that is nuclear (in Germany) or is it 33% of the energy produced in Germany itself that is nuclear? This ambiguity is resolved with C which clearly states 33% is the percentage of energy generated in Germany and not France.
So C should be it.

The choice is between C and D.
The D is very tempting as it shorter than C.

I had picked D .... but there is something wrong in the construction ... very minute to be noticed in the 1.5 mins.

d. whereas just over 33 percent of the energy comes from nuclear power in Germany[PP]

PP: It's placement should be:

d. whereas just over 33 percent of the energyin Germany[PP] comes from nuclear power.

What do you think guys ?
