"which" eliminates D and E.

C has pronoun reference problem.

A is clear.

B for me now. I have support now

B for sure.
D&E with which=>wrong
C & A: pronoun. Even "they" refers to television costs , cannot use present perfect for the previous elections.

"than it was in.." is redundant.

(B) for brevity.
