i had it down to C and D. Eliminated all choices with 'while' because we want to show contrast in the sentence .... but why is D wrong ?

D compares "a owner of a codominium" with owners of coops in general. It's generally a good idea to keep the number of subjects in agreement. The intent of the sentence is to compare owners of condos and coops in general, and not a specific condo owner to many coop owners.
