Reply to "Inversion in comparative sentence"

Thank you, David. How patient you are!

Are you bored with answering my questions? ♥

May I ask the last question in this post? 

Assume that the first part of my question below were correct, would there be two possible choices C and D? 

(I would like to ask that because it was a question in the English -2017- national -test in my country for those who wanted to get higher education, and it caused a lot of controversy because many teachers of English didn't see the given key D as the only answer. According to them, there was more than one suitable answer, and C was totally correct.)
