The comparison is between numbers of army men and numbers of students enrolled in colleges in India. Only E compares the two set of numbers. Hence, E.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



You can have an equivalent number but not equivalent people. A and B incorrectly apply ‘equivalent’ directly to the several million Chinese men. In the same way C incorrectly applies ‘equal’ to the men, not to the number of men. It implies that soldiers are equal to something. The correct comparison here is between the number of soldiers and the number of students. Choice D also makes a mistake in reference in that it compares soldiers to the noun ‘enrollment’. Choice E is the correct answer. It compares Chinese soldiers to Indian students.
