Answer is A but isn't starting a sentence with "Whereas" against proper English or does anything go with GMAC and its English ?

The sentence compares “tiny tubes in mammals” and “tiny tubes in birds”.

A) Compare “tiny tubes in mammals” and “tiny tubes in birds”. Parallel structure: “whereas in mammals the tiny tubes …, in birds the tubes…”  Correct as is
B) Unparalleled structure  Incorrect
C) Compare “mammal” with “birds’ tubes”  Incorrect
D) Compare “mammal” with “the tubes in bird”  Incorrect
E) Correctly compare “the tiny tubes” in mammals with “the tubes” in bird but incorrectly use modifier “which in.. lines”. This modifier is far away from the noun “tiny tubes” to which it modifies  Incorrect
