In Hungary, as in much of Eastern Europe, an overwhelming proportion of women work, many of which are in middle management and light industry.


(A) as in much of Eastern Europe, an overwhelming proportion of women work, many of which are in

(B) as with much of Eastern Europe, an overwhelming proportion of women works, many in

(C) as in much of Eastern Europe, an overwhelming proportion of women work, many of them in

(D) like much of Eastern Europe, an overwhelming proportion of women works, and many are

(E) like much of Eastern Europe, an overwhelming proportion of women work, many are in



We cannot use like for comparison in this sentence as the comparison is not between two nouns here. 
1)Many women work ( In Hungary, as in much of Europe)


2) we cannot use "which" to refer to women; we'll have to use "them" instead

3) For the plural subject women, we need a plural verb- work


Hence C is correct.
