B should be right.

All others include tenses which are wrong.

A can not be because there is no reference for "it". C can not be for the same reason, but for they. D and E lack a reference for E. Finally, only B remain.

I think only B is correct.

but in one place I have seen the OA as B
and in another place I found OA is written as C

I think it should be B. what do you guys think?

One more B.

A. a greater proportion than it was: Was is wrong

C. a greater proportion than they have been: have been is wrong

D and E too awkward.
