C

B, D, E are all wrong because of the use of "among" to compare two entities.
C keeps the tense consistent.

Some how I came to C though their styles is better than they are in styles.

It's A. In C they refers to Ndebele women
in A => to their geometrical symmetries embellished in a style that varies from woman to woman and house to house

I say A.

DE out: uses "with" to refer to women, should be "whose"
B. changes the meaning of the sentence. varying among women and houses? sounds like it varies between only women and houses. This changes the meaning of the original sentence.

C. Use of they is ambigious women or the murals??? also "and they are in styles" seems ungrammatic.
