I would go with D

Since the sentence is using "Unlike" right things should be compared..What are we trying to compare "Shoppers in dept stores" vs "shoppers in sports stores"

A. in department stores, do very little impulse shopping, not buying a pair of skis and a boomerang when they come in for a basketball, but they leave with a basketball only
COmparison not correct
B. in department stores, shop impulsively very little; someone who comes in for a basketball will leave with a basketball only and not also buy a pair of skis and a boomerang as well
COmparison not correct
C. those in department stores, do very little impulse shopping, do not buy a pair of skis and a boomerang when they come in for a basketball, but leave with only a basketball
Correct comparison, but intoduces sentence fragements "do very little impulse" and "do not buy " doesnt seem to connect well
D. those in department stores, do very little impulse shopping; someone who comes in for a basketball will leave with a basketball only and not buy a pair of skis and a boomerang as well
CORRECT
E. department stores, shop impulsively very little; someone will not buy a pair of skis and a boomerang when they .

2. "Those" antecedent correctly refers to customers.

(D) makes the correct comparison by using "those." Additionally, th semicolon correctly separates the two clauses.
