No OA

A)
X experience fewer problems than Y

X =they Y=children.. both are parallle.

This something similar to
X is taller than Y
X has more money than Y

You can't say

X is taller than Y do
X has more money than Y do

D is clearly out.

A.

D is wrong: you can't have two tenses (future and present) in the same part of the sentence.

If D is wrong because it has both present and future tense so does A also have,so A should also be wrong.

IMO B because it has present tense in both parts of the sentence and i think the construction 'than do' is correct as

it is not similar to

X is taller than Y

it is like

X experiences fewer psychological problems.............................than Y do

Even I dont find any problem with B......

I think the construction of the sentence requires "do"

No OA

IMO B.

Absence of 'do' would incorrectly compare the likeness/ similarity of "fewer psychological problems and develop quicker socially " with children .

OA:D

In D ..more quikly seems redundant to me ..

otherwise explanation is as under:-
( found at other forum )
OA - D - parallel, idiomatic, right comparison - if X happens Y will happen - ...associate with....play with other children, they will experience fewer psychological problems and develop(verb) more quickly(adverb) socially than do...

A, B - incorrect - we need an adverb to modify a verb - ...develop(verb) quicker(adjective)

C, E - incorrect - violating parallelism - ...associate with...played with...
