What is being compared in this question? -- Volume of Lake Superior with the volume of Lake Baikal.

(A) is less than half of Lake Baikal
This choice says volume of Lake superior is <1/2 of Lake Baikal. So volume of one lake is compared with another lake itself.

(B) is less than half that of Lake Baikal
replace “that of” with “volume” – the volume of lake superior <1/2 volume (that of) of Lake Baiklal.

(C) is less than half as compared to Lake Baikal
Same as A.

(D) has less than half what Lake Baikal has
Volume of one lake IS less than volume of second lake. “HAS” is wrong. What does volume of lake superior HAS?

(E) has less than half as compared to what Lake Baikal has
Same as D.

B is the correct answer

verb "to be" is the correct verb so D&E eliminated
B is the only option that refers to the "volume" by "that" A&C eliminated
