Its better if you could post the SC. That will attract more replies and explanations.

Answer is E.

Rule here is that an adjective modifies the noun that is closest to it. People are not counted in 'amounts'; A B C are out. D is out because 'larger' modifies 'people' instead of 'number'.

(E) is the answer. Like paddyboy said, larger seems to hint that people were bigger in this concert !
