I go for C
the coma make clear that the sentence act as a modifier and that "they" refers to murals( what we clearly can't see in A). Moreover the sentence is paralell .

I go in for A.

I am not in for 'C' because

1) "whose murals are brilliantly colored, their geometrical symmetries are embellished with old and new iconography, and they are in styles that vary from woman to woman and house to house " Redundant

A.

For all those concerned with parallelism, you need to ask: What do we need to make parallel here. This isn't a pure list, it's a list with a modifier in the middle.

Picking different answers from others here.......

I will pick B. Becasue this is a list of things which are describing art of Ndebele women.So they need to be parallel and B maintain this parallelism by using possesive nouns as subject and rest all are mixing one with another.

What is OA pls.

C i wrong because 'they' becomes ambiguous. it doesnt specify what it refers to- whether murals or symmetries.
OA pls

I believe the "they" in option C is ambiguous. It might refer to either murals or the symmetries.

I believe the OA is A. And I cant do a better job explaining than this thread
