While the owner of a condominium apartment has free and clear title to the dwelling, owners of cooperative apartments have shares in a corporation that owns a building and leases apartments to them.

(A) While the owner of a condominium apartment has free and clear title to the dwelling,
(B) The owner of a condominium apartment has free and clear title to the dwelling, but
(C) Whereas owners of condominium apartments have free and clear title to their dwellings,
(D) An owner of a condominium apartment has free and clear title to the dwelling, whereas
(E) Condominium apartment owners have a title to their dwelling that is free and clear, while

I am in conflict with 2 options C and E.
C is fine in all the respect but 'whereas'. Is the sentence correct if it starts with 'whereas'. I searched a lot and could not find. Can anyone explain...

Thanks..

The answer should be C.

'Whereas' can be used as an introductory statement and it can be used as a conditional statement, hence it's use in the above sentence is correct.

Doeswnt C alter the meaning of the sentence by taking abt owners as opposed to talking abt an owner

The use of "owners" is fine because the sentence contrasts the two different types of owners.

A, B & E - Eliminate - Use of 'owner' is wrong.
Left with C & E
E - shows the comparison but....
C - shows the comparison and is || too.

Hence C is the answer.

Yes, A can not be becasue it should be owners for the correct comparison.

E changes the meanings - which is free and clear - title or dwelling???

So, C is correct.

Exactly the same logic. I pick C.
