Imo C

(C) as likely to break the new rules as they are
replace original sentence with option C

The school officials believe that students will be as likely to break the new rules as they are](likely to break) the current ones.

Hope it helps.

I chose B but the more I read this question the more I feel A is correct.

A - seems ok
B -much likely seems to be redundant
In C, D and E, the pronoun they does not make sense.

The correct idiom is as much X...... as Y
Here X and Y should be parallel.

The school officials believe that students will be as much likely to break the new rules as the current ones.

See the red highlighted part is not parallel. So Option B is not correct.

(D) equally likely to break the new rules as they are

(E) equally likely that they will break the new rules as


+1 for C.

Correct idiom: as likely X as Y.
So, A, D and E are out, B is also incorrect because of wrong comparison.
Hence, C is the answer.

P.S. My understanding was wrong, so I have edited my post.

@guptakashish02

(A) equally likely to break the new rules as - Break new rules as current rules . NOt correct

(B) as much likely to break the new rules as- Same as A

(C) as likely to break the new rules as they are- Correct

(D) equally likely to break the new rules as they are- equally ... as does not sound appropriate

(E) equally likely that they will break the new rules as - Same as A

Give kudos if it helps
