A good question to start with this hectic week..Shows a good use of "compared to " and "compared with" and also comparison of similar things. I think here "compared with" is more appropriate as "compared to" is used to compare dissimilar items.

Correct use of preposition - compared "with" narrows it down to 2 choices . use correct parallelism to get "E" as answer.

Use "compared with" when you are looking for differences.
Use "compared to" when highlighting (or comparing) the similarities of one thing to another.
