Quite straight forward.

The non underline part "the way markets reacts" is singular hence the start of the underline part should be singular.

Therefore, A and B are out.
There is no need of a perfect tense, simple present is fine. So E is also out.

Out of C and D, there is an idiom error.

As much X as Y..

Hence C is also out as it says as much X than Y...

hello experts, pls help me with my query.
I know E is wrong b/c of verb tense.
GMATNinjaTwo,
In this question, the comparison "as much as" in E is correct?

Sure, "as much as" is fine. If you look closely, you'll see that the same phrase is used in the correct answer, just not all in a row.
