Imo A. Isn't using 'higher than' and 'at least' redundant?

A seems apt here.

Other options seem wrong.

Option C is wordy. B seems better than C. But B has the error as point above.

Hence I prefer 'A'

D. 40 percent high or more
E. more higher than 40 percent


Question.
If we had a number of students in the first part of sentence, would the right answer be "C"?

Example: Twenty years ago, only 100 students at Dunmore College who intended to major in chemistry were women; today that figure is higher by 40 percent at the least
