Unlike cellular phones and personal computers, there is a difficulty on the part of people to adopt to other modern technologies.

A)Unlike cellular phones and personal computers, there is a difficulty on the part of people to adopt to other modern technologies.
C) Unlike cellular phones and personal computers, other modern technologies bring out a difficulty for many people to adopt to them.
D) Many people, though comfortable using cellular phones and personal computers, have difficulty adopting to other modern technologies.

Why is C wrong? How can we use perfect tense here, 'have' as no two events are occurring.

First of all it should be Adapting and not adopting .There seems to be error in the original post
moreover to show contrast although/though/but are preferred over 'while' since while can also mean (something is going on While something else happened)

+1 for D.

For choice C, pronoun ambiguity "them" can refer back to "people" or "modern technologies"
