same here C

D & E is wrong because it uses there ... where as it points to "population of india "

B is wrongly uses they

A has mistake in sub verb agreement ' it ..... have ' is wrong it should be 'it ...has '

So C should be the right answer

^ C ^

B, D and E are cortainly wrong because "they" and "there" does not have anything to modify.

In A the subject goes on to be "the population of India" and we need "that of China" then. So, A is wrong.

C is correct for ||lism.
