I think we can straight away remove E because of usage of which and awkward construction
In A effectiveness is compared with public and private schools
In B effectiveness is compared with that of public and private schools education
C is not too different from A other than of home-schools, but the comparison is still incorrect
D correctly compares the effectiveness with that of public and private schools
So,
D

B. the effectiveness of home-schooling compared to that of public and private school education
I feel B is more convincing than D .... home-schooling means education at home, which is compared to education at private and public schools.

Can someone clarify on this?

Official explanation by Kaplan ;

The sentence is comparing effectiveness to public schools. This is a faulty comparison. (A) and (C) do not correct the illogical comparison. (E) changes the meaning of the sentence. (D) corrects all the mistakes, and is better than (B) because the nouns being compared are in parallel form.

Hope this helped

Hi,

if we read carefully , B talks about effectiveness of school's education, but what we really want is effectiveness of school.
