Hi Folks,
I too would vouch for Option C.
A has unidiomatic compared with from. B does not have any comparison at all. D has all the schools in possessive forms but of what? ? E has this going that I am not sure of. A pronoun would have been nice.

Thanks.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



Is it better to say ‘the percentage of students is ten’ or ‘ten percent of students’. The latter is better. Eliminate D and E. Choice A disrupts parallel structure: it says ‘ten percent of... students’, then ‘it is five percent’. Choice B makes the same mistake. Choice C is the correct answer.
