The correct answer is B. This is a variant of a Comparison problem, in that we are comparing what both these groups of people earn. A changes the meaning with the verb own. C suggests that high school graduates earn university graduates. D suggests that they earn the earnings of university graduates, and also has the ungrammatical university graduate's earnings. E also suggests that high school graduates are earning university graduates, and also uses the incorrect amount of university graduates rather than number of university graduates.
