Vote A.
BTW, all sentences are so ugly that I do not think this question comes from GMAT--the usages of "each other" and "between" disobey the rules.

Can anyone please explain, why the answer for the question above, 'between' is not followed with 'and'
and also could you please help me distinguish when to use idiom between x and y and when not to use it

Use BETWEEN: when selecting from two OR more distinct items.
Use AMONG: when selecting from a group.

Correct: I must choose between red and blue... (selecting from distinct items - red and blue)
Correct: I must choose among these colours... (selecting from a group)

A common conceptual mistake is that "between" is to be used when selecting from 2 items and "among" when selecting from more than two.

However, "between" can be used even for selecting from more than two objects , if they are distinct.

Correct: I must choose between red, blue, yellow and green.
Wrong: I must choose among red, blue, yellow and green.

I would say the original sentence should have used "among products" instead of "between products" since "products" is a group, not distinct items. The following constructions would be correct:

"comparison among products"... correct
"comparison between product X and product Y"... correct
"comparison between products"... wrong
