C!!!

D: We have to compare "75 percent of the energy produced in France" with not "33 percent of the energy" but "33 percent of the energy produced in Germany".
so D is out~

D reads wierd to me. It looks like conveying a message to the effect that

of all energy, 33 % of it comes from nuclear power generated in Germany

C looks like it is comparing '75 percent of the energy' with 'nuclear power'.

OA: C

here is OE

A "It" has no clear referent.
B Incorrectly compares "75 percent (of the energy produced in France)" with "Germany." Also, "just over 33 percent," considering phrasing and placement, is confusing and unclear.
D Structure is awkward and confusing. Specifically, Choice D erroneously implies that "just over 33 percent of the energy" in France comes from "nuclear power in Germany."
E "It" has no clear referent, plus, the structure is awkward.
ANSWER: C Clear and concise, without the grammatical and structural problems noted in the other choices. The reference answer is D. In my opinion, the reference answer is incorrect.

A. while in Germany it is just over 33 percent
=> energy or nuclear power

B. compared to Germany, which uses just over 33 percent => unidiomatic

C. whereas nuclear power accounts for just over 33 percent of the energy produced in Germany

D. whereas just over 33 percent of the energy comes from nuclear power in Germany

E. compared with the energy from nuclear power in Germany, where it is just over 33 percent => awkward

C seems to be the best fit !![/b]

It is clearly D to maintain the correct parallelism between energy and energy.

C is correct.

D says: whereas just over 33 percent of the energy comes from nuclear power in Germany

The, "in Germany" is misplaced and should come after the energy word...otherwise,this changes the meaning of the sentence...nuclear power in Germany accounts for 33% of the energy of what ??

I will go with C.

Though from a parellelism point of view D is better, owing to the misplaced "in Germany" which should have been placed after energey in choice D and which was pointed out by Vineet, choice
C wins.

I think C is the best choice.

Because D distorts the original meaning of the sentence. D means that 33% of energy comes from nuclear power in germany (implied that remaining 67% energy comes from nuclear power from other country)
So not correct option.

While C correctly states the percentage of total energy produced in germany. The original sentence intends to say the same thing.

C

D states 33 perecent of the energy comes from nuclear power in germany


it makes it unclear as to what energy the sentence is referring to, energy for what???

C clearly states that the 33% refers to thte total energy produced in germany
