(A) were in excess of the number of local customers ----the number … were-- SV number mismatch

(B) had an excess over the local customers who were --"had an excess" is inappropriate

(C) exceeded the local customers who were ---comparison between the number and human beings

(D) numbered more than the local customers --' the number… numbered' is redundant

E) Exceeded the number of local customers --- the number of tourists //the number of local customers.

The number of tourists exceeded the number of local customers this is the correct phrase

the number (E) exceeded the number of local customers
proper comparison
You cannot say the number exceeded the local customers because this would mean a literal number ex. 5 is more than some human beings.
