since its written "The stories", here stories is plural so are should be there...(b) is out...
now representing and dealing are parallel... so (D) is the answer..Also (E) cannot be the answer because its written "were dealing" because its in past tense.. both representing and dealing should be in present continuous tense..

The stories that Shakespeare introduced in his dramas are ordinary yet impressive, representing much of the human emotion while occasionally he deals with social issues.

Note: The blue part is modifier --> it should maintain its own parallel structure.

(A) are ordinary yet impressive, representing much of the human emotion while occasionally he deals
Wrong.

(B) is ordinary yet impressive, representing much of the human emotion, also occasionally it dealt
Wrong. The stories is plural.

(C) are ordinary yet impressive, representing much of the human emotion and occasionally dealt
Wrong. Parallelism problem.

(D) are ordinary yet impressive, representing much of the human emotion while occasionally dealing
Correct.

(E) are ordinary yet impressive, representing much of the human emotions , also occasionally were dealing
Wrong. Parallelism problem.

Hope it helps.

This is a good explanation. The one thing that it doesn't mention (perhaps because it doesn't need to) is to remember that the subject of the sentence is [b]stories[/], so (A) cannot be correct because of its use of the pronoun he.

Otherwise, it's all about keeping those verbs parallel.

(A) are ordinary yet impressive, representing much of the human emotion while occasionally he deals

(B) is ordinary yet impressive, representing much of the human emotion, also occasionally it dealt

(C) are ordinary yet impressive, representing much of the human emotion and occasionally dealt. This needs to be parallel.

(D) are ordinary yet impressive, representing much of the human emotion while occasionally dealing

(E) are ordinary yet impressive, representing much of the human emotions , also occasionally were dealing This is missing a "joiner" word at the comma.
