There are hopeful signs that we are shifting away from our heavy reliance on fossil fuels: more than ten times as much energy is generated through wind power now than it was in 1990.
A. As … than搭配错误
B. It指代energy（ generated through wind power），这个energy不可能再出现在1990年，逻辑语义错误
C. 正确，the case表示"状况"，as be the case比较结构
E. As … than搭配错误
as much as，后面缺一个as，秒排A、E。竖着对比所有选项后3词，我选C，有代词的一般都有问题。

Manhattan里有说到当比较的时候时间（或其他状语）不同指代的名词（energy）就是不同；确实是90年的energy和2010年的energy不是同一个，通常只能用that或those指代；the total fat of the sheep is less than that of the cow.
(1) the second half of the construction 'ten times as much ... ____' is as, not than. therefore, you can eliminate answers (a) and (e), which contain 'than'. (i'm assuming that (e) is supposed to say 'than', not 'then'; i don't think the gmat problems would that blatant an error) (2) the pronoun 'it' is inappropriate, because 'it' must refer to the ENTIRETY of the noun phrase serving as an antecedent. for instance, the following is an improper sentence: last year's attendance was ten thousand greater than it was this year in the above sentence, the pronoun 'it' must necessarily refer to last year's attendance, not just attendance. the problem in this post has the same issue: the pronoun 'it' must refer to more than ten times as much energy, not just energy - an interpretation that makes no logical sense. therefore, all answer choices containing the pronoun 'it' are wrong.

than 后面补全应该是energy was generated through wind power.
as much as 排除 AE

B中it指通过风能产生的电力，1990年使用的是fossil fuels。所以不用it 。the case指一种状况。C逻辑更为合理一点。
