First of all, good to see you back Kpadma :beer
A) improperly compares "manage and maintain" to "other types of investments"
B) paper assets are much easier to manage and maintain than are other types of investments --> proper comparison [paper assets are / other types of investments (are)]
C) same error as in A
D) same error as in A
E) needs plural form "are" instead of "is" to make proper comparison
