as many should be followed by ...... as

B) The Caucasus region has several times as many indigenous languages per square mile as most other areas of the world.

correct option.

Same issue as A.

More should be followed by 'than'; nevertheless, in the context as many as, is the proper construction.

E) The Caucasus region has several times as many more indigenous languages per square mile as most other areas of the world.

usage of more is redundant.
