Hi, navaneethan123,

If you revisit the concepts once again, you will find that 'compared with' and 'compared to' both are correct expression. 'As compared to' is also correct expression.

'When compared to' for particular question that you are talking about may have some other error. Still, with above information you can solve the question easily.

Hope this helps.

uncertainty is prevalent.

Use of their in A & B is incorrect since "The domestic chinchilla" is singular. A & B are incorrect.
as compared against is incorrect in D
E changes meaning of the original sentence.

C is only option left after PoE.
