A can not be it.

I will go with E.

C kind of changes the meaning and moreover I somehow do not like the post positive noun "people more polished ", I like pre-positive noun.

more polished people, where more modifying polished which indeed modifies people.

You need a personal 3rd person singular pronoun after than

The only choices left are C and E

Picked E.

"who" not required, as we don't need a restrictive clause here.
So b/w D and E.

D used an object form of a pronoun while comparing , when a subject form of a pronoun is needed.

My choice is E.

I really had to scan the choices several times, but I think E nails it.

E makes most sense.
Who was is redundant in A. Also usage of third person him is wrong. Same with choices B & D

Choice C makes wrong comparison in the list of things describing world by inserting people right after and

Only choice E corrects all these problems.

Moreover C has a different meaning

a world dominated by wealthier, better-educated, and people more polished than he was

it means, world was dominated (by people) and (wealthier, better-educated but they can not be considered people)...

"Than he" is the correct usage, no doubt about it. E
