An analysis found that hospitals are ------ the largest contributor of carbon emissions in the health care sector.

A)
rather
B) the more
C) by far
D) only
E) much

The writer of the question is from Turkey and according to the key C is correct.
Grammar books say much can also modify the superlatives. The choice (E) sounds odd to me, if grammatical. Do you think E is also correct? Thanks.
