    A Sentence Completion Question

    Dear Teacher,

    I would appreciate if you could please help me on the following question:

    According to figures, world population is increasing _____ in _____ highly industrialized countries.

    A) the slowest / as
    B) slower / most
    C) the most slowly / the more
    D) slowly / such as
    E) the slower / the most


    It looks there's something weird in the formation but I would choose C anyway since "the most slowly" seems to be acceptable for the first blank due to an adverb requirement and again "the more" could be too because of the same reason.
