I would pick D.

E is incorrect as "of" or similar thing is missing before "what has .."

D for correct logical comparison

E

2/3's what has been is missing 'of' and the the tense is incorrect as well

I too choose D, as the use of "2/3 of the amount" sounds right.

[quote="faifai0714"]why not C?[/quote]

C sounds like men don't earn, they already have their earning since some tiem in past.

i'll also pick D
because, comparing 'earn to earn' and in E, 'what' can only be used while we are comparing 'what','when' and 'how'....
