E sounds best. Others have incorrect modifiers / comparisons. Another good question +1.

The Sentence has comparison issue:
Unlike many United State Cities …, San Antonio …

A) Unlike many United States cities, where a river is no longer the focal point of urban life, the river in San Antonio [Comarison between many United States cities, the river is not parallel – eliminate it]

B) Unlike the river in many cities in the United States, which is no longer the focal point of urban life, in San Antonio the river [Parallel is correct but “which” modifies the United States not the cities – eliminate it]

C) Today the river in many cities in the United States is no longer the focal point of urban life, unlike San Antonio, where it [It has no clear referent – eliminate it]

D) In few United States cities today, a river is the focal point of urban life, but the river in San Antonio [Changes the meaning of the sentence – eliminate it]

E) No longer do many cities in the United States have a river as the focal point of urban life, but in San Antonio the river [Clear in meaning – Hold it]

It is hard for me to consider E the OA, why E is OA?
