(A) 'it' doesn't refer to something, moreover '..both X and Y...' X and Y must be parallel

(B) '..both those who live abroad and those who live...' is parallel and the best answer.

(C) same mistake like in (A)

(D) not parallel and awkward

(E) not parallel

B.


Note the familiar structure:
"Intar... has moved away... and now draws on..."

Simply realizing this common structure and I believe B is the right choice.
