B)With a population equal to that of London in an area one third of its size, Gurgaon is a very densely populated city, averaging

B is correct since prepositional modifier is correctly modifying Gurgaon
,and averaging is correctly used to convey the effect of first part.

A) incorrectly saying that the population is equal to London. It should say that the population is equal to that of London

C) Here the meaning is suggesting that London's population is in Gurgaon

D) Repeats the same error as in A

E) Repeats meaning error as in C

Hence answer should be B

Hello Ushasi,

The 'its' in A, B and D is ambiguous.

'its' in C & E cannot refer to London as it is in possessive state London's
