Option A - Incorrect
It is wrong because the rate at which people in France eat fatty foods is compared to the US.

Option B - Correct
The rate at which people in France consume fatty foods is compared to the rate of consumption in the US.

Option C - Incorrect
Here, the rate is compared to the United States people. The use of 'their' in the sentence also causes confusion. Does it refer to people or fatty foods?

Option D - Incorrect
'The rate of' used here refers to the price of fatty foods which changes the intended meaning of the sentence.

Option E - Incorrect
It refers to the rate of people consuming food rather than to the rate of consumption of the food.
