QOD2015_0424
Explanation
A - Incorrect: The sentence presents an illogical comparison between ice-cream sodas to children.

C - Incorrect: It is not clear what is being compared (is so of?). If ice-cream sodas are compared, a reference to them must appear after than (for example: than those).

D, E - Incorrect: The comparative form much more requires than after. Compared and in comparison are incorrect.

B - Correct: The prepositional phrase among children is parallel to among American children. Among is used correctly to compare more than two items or plural entities.

B is the correct answer.

Though ice cream soda might be more popular with American children, New Zealand consumes more ice cream per capita than another other country on earth.
