Solution

The correct option is D

The original sentence incorrectly omits "that" following the verb "suggest." Moreover, it contains the incomplete construction "as . . . or worse than" (missing the second "as").

(A) This choice is incorrect as it repeats the original sentence.
(B) This choice incorrectly omits "that" following the verb "suggest" and it contains the unnecessary word "just." Moreover, it contains the incomplete construction "as . . . or even worse than" (missing the second "as").
(C) CORRECT. This choice correctly uses the word "that" to introduce a clause that follows the verb "suggest." Also, it contains the complete construction "as . . .as or worse than."
(D) This choice incorrectly omits "that" following the verb "suggest."
