With a population equal to Kansas in an area one three-hundredth its size, Singapore is the most densely populated nation in the world, averaging almost ten thousand people per square mile.

(A) With a population equal to Kansas in an area one three-hundredth its size, Singapore is the most densely populated nation in the world, averaging
equal to Kansas is saying that Kansas is a number.

(B) With a population equal to that of Kansas in an area one three-hundredth its size, Singapore is the most densely populated nation in the world, averaging
that of Kansas corrects the issue in A. Everything else is the same as A and seems fine.

(C) With Kansas’s population in one three-hundredth of its area, the densest population in the world is that of Singapore, with an average of
Sentence seems convoluted (don't know how to express this accurately).
Kansas's population might be ambiguous, saying that the same people are in Singapore. Compare with A and B that use equal to

(D) Singapore has the same population as Kansas but only one three-hundredth of its area, and makes it the most densely populated nation in the world, averaging
missing 'this', and this makes it

(E) Singapore is the most densely populated nation in the world, with Kansas’s population in one three-hundredth of its area, or an average of
Maybe the same ambiguity as in C (if it is an ambiguity).
Also ambiguous if in one three-hundredth of its area is 1/300 of Singapore (i.e. a tiny portion of Singapore has the same population as all of Kansas) or 1/300 of Kansas

KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



B.

Be sensitive to the small variations in answer choices. They allow you to zero in on subtle errors like the one in this sentence.When you got to the answer choices here, you may have noticed that each one plays with the wording of “population equal to Kansas. You can compare only like terms. You can’t say “a population equal to Kansas,” because you can only compare a population to another population, you can’t compare a population to a state. In (B),”that of”should have sounded really good to you;“that” stands for “popu- lation.”“With a population equal to that of Kansas”is just a shorter and more elegant way of saying “With a population equal to the population of Kansas.” In (C), the population isn’t “with an average” of ten thousand people per square mile.
