A. -do -
B. they can potentially devastate home owners in that their => The problem with B is 'their', look for structure, 'their' refers to 'values', not 'home owners' (the intended meaning)
C. for home owners they are potentially devastating,because their => Same problem with the pronoun
D. for homeowners it is potentially devastating in that their => 'it' have no antecedent
E It can potentially devastate home owners , whose => Same reasoning with D

Any thoughts?

Any thoughts on the OA? I think it is b/w c and d, I choose C.

The usage "can potentially" is definitely redundant.
Values can devastate.. correct.
Values are potentially devastating ... correct.
Values can potentially devastate... redundant.

B. Wrong because of above redundancy.
C. In a sentence all they, them and their should refer to the same antecedent. Here they refers to depressed property values, whereas their refers to homeowners.
D.The pronoun it has no singular antecedent.
E. Wrong because of above redundancy.

The correct answer is A.
