From what I dug up on the web,

equivalent of <thing> is the same as equivalent to <thing>. The former is used in the definite, the latter the indefinite, ie. one says "an equivalent to", but "the equivalent of"

I don't think this will ever show on the GMAT because all of the choices are unnecessary.

The best sentence is: University of Warwick spends 400 days on the reconstruction of its administration building.
