The first part before the comma is an introductory modifier modifying "U.S. citizens". Only E properly says that those citizens account for a part of the whole.

Why is it wrong to say that US has 5% of world population?

You are misunderstanding this question. Remember that the subject is the U.S. citizens, not the U.S. Hence, the citizens cannot "have" 5% of world population

Good remainder question from OG, HongHu.
I plan to redo OG's SC but I don't think I have to now b/c you seem to post the trickiest ones.
