This question tests multiple concepts, but what we have to look at first is the sentence structure.
We need to make sure that the items being compared are parallel structure. In other words, X in France should be parallel to X in Germany.

Now let’s look at the options one by one:

Option A: In this option, ‘it’ does not have a clear referent. Here it seems like ‘it’ refers to ‘over 75% of the energy produced in France’. Eliminate.

Option B: Incorrectly compares 'energy' and 'Germany'. It raises the question - "33 percent" of what? If we think, Germany, then it alters the meaning. Germany does not use 33 percent of nuclear energy. Eliminate.

Option C: Correct comparison between nuclear energy produced in France and Germany. This is the best option.

Option D: Same as B. It is not clear what "the energy" refers to. Of the world? Of Germany? Seems to imply that 33 percent of ALL energy comes from Germany. It’s ambiguous. Eliminate.

Option E
: "nuclear power" (all of it) is illogically compared to "nuclear power in Germany" - not the intended comparison. The last clause reads - "nuclear power in Germany Is just over 33%" - 33% of what? There is also the ambiguous ‘it’ in this option. Eliminate.

Hope this helps!
