(A) which is 14 percent more than the previous year
(B) which is 14 percent higher than it was the previous year
(C) 14 percent higher than the previous yearâ€™s figure
(D) an amount that is 14 percent more than the previous year was
(E) an amount that is 14 percent higher than the previous yearâ€™s figure

I'll go for E
In B which seems to refer to 1992 and noty 167Bill

It corrects the comparision fallacy of original answer as well as
it supplies a subject "an amount" for clause "that is 14 percent higher than the previous yearâ€™s figure and largely offsets weak demand from Europe and Japan"

Pals, Please supply your rationale to back your choice. The maneuver and the reasons makes the dicussion more important and interesting.

Happy solving,
Dharmin
