Between C and E, I'll go for E.
Although in E, 'them' seems to have no referrent.

IMO it should be C.
C does not have any ambiguous reference.
Moreover it looks concise.

Agree with kumar. To me, the contest was b/w C and D. My vote goes to C for being the most concise of the two.

A, B, and E have incorrect usage of 'they' and 'them'.

(A) where the household incomes of 49 percent of them are
them is ambiguous.

(B) where they have 49 percent of the household incomes
they is ambiguous.

(C) where 49 percent of the household incomes are
correct. Where correctly modifies community and provides more information.

(D) which has 49 percent of the household incomes
C preferred.

(E) in which 49 percent of them have household income
them is confusing.

Can someone clarify the rule of using WHICH vs. WHERE...

For me it was b/w C and D, but I thought that WHERE refers to the physical place (which is already stated in the beginnig), whereas WHICH better describes the community, which has... incomes below poverty level... If you put "community, where...." I would expect to see reference to physical place, rather than some characteristics of it... confusing :?
