    There's no way to correct anything without knowing the question.

    If the exercise is to choose which of A - D means roughly the same as 2, either A, B or D is correct.
    A is not so good because the usual phrase is "prefer X to Y", not "prefer X than Y"
    B is a mess.
    D is also a dog's breakfast. I'd find it hard to choose any of them, but maybe I'd tick A.
