(A) if you fail to advertise the highest price in a range of prices for a service or product as prominently as that of the lowest, it (it has no clear reference – eliminate it)

(B) if one fails to advertise the highest price in a range of prices for a service or product as prominently as the lowest price, it (it has no clear referent – can point to “fails to advertise the highest price or fails to advertise the lowest price – eliminate it)

(C) failure to advertise the highest price in a range of prices for a service or product as prominently as the lowest (Hold it)

(D) failure to advertise as prominently the highest price in a range of prices for a service or product as the lowest (as adjective as – as noun as is not correct – eliminate it)
