IMO E.

In A,B,C rates are compared to rates...however in all these choices this comparison is unclear...also, 'rates of' indicates that the last part should have 'of' instead of 'in' or 'to'.

In D, 'when compared to' is awkward.

^^ right A, B, C are gone as they compare wrong things ..

but in D and E, D is wrong as in D-
1) "compared to is used" - this is used to compare two dissimilar things .. are almost similar things are being compared.
2) the idiom 'as .. as' is not used properly.
