:?: while depressed property values can hurt some large investors, they are potentially devastating for home owners,whose equity - in many cases representing a life's savings - can plunge or even disappear

A. -do -
B. they can potentially devastate home owners in that their
C. for home owners they are potentially devastating,because their
D. for homeowners it is potentially devastating in that their
E It can potentially devastate home owners , whose

My query :
the explanation says that can potentially as stated in B, is redundant. I feel it makes the statement look parellel ?- can hurt large..,can potentially devastate..

Any thoughts?

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 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.
