A) While is unnecessary and does not fit.
B) "the" implies that there is only one, "an" would fit better
C) Whereas is improperly used, should never start a comparison
D) whereas is improperly used, should have a semicolon

Answer: E) the plural owners is more parallel. title to their dwelling THAT is free and clear displays the information more effectively than the others. the "while" doesn't show as effective of a comparison, but does show one. I would say it is the best choice.

"owners of condominium apartments" brings the parallelism.

I will go with C.

OA is C

I am pretty you can start statements with whereas.

E. Condominium apartment owners have a title to their dwelling that is free and clear, while

Also error in E - it should be "Condominium apartment owners have title to their dwelling that is free and clear, while" - no "a" before title.
