C it is.
A,B - misplaced modifier "when working with overseas clients should modify global manager....B also has the 'equal' for wordiness
D, - plain wordy and some pronouns have no referrents...
E - wordy and 'to be as equally important as' should be the right phrase

C it is. Just to add to E's flaw is that it compares gerund "the understanding" to present participle "grasping" and is thus not parallel

Paul,

Can you please explain me this difference b/w understanding, the gerund and grasping, the present participle?

Thanx

Thanx

gerund and present participle are both words which end in -ing. The difference is that the gerund plays the role of a noun whereas the present participle plays the role of a verb. Let's take some examples:

gerund: Eating in a hurry is not good --> "eating in a hurry" plays the role of a noun. It is also the subject of the sentence and could be replaced by any noun "X"
present participle: It is not good when you are eating in a hurry --> "are eating" is part of the verb of dependent clause "when you are eating in a hurry" where the subject is "you"
