A. the reasons of its readers working late and the effect of their absence from home affecting their families(the reasons can't be the object of this sentence)

B. its readers why they worked late and their absence from home affecting their families (parallelism not maintained)

C. why its readers work late and the ways in which their absence from home affects their families (asked its readers is correct form and parallelism is not maintained)

D. the reasons why its readers worked late and how their absence from home had affected their families (the reasons can't be the object of this sentence)

E. its readers why they work late and how their absence from home affects their families (The object is rectified and parallelism is maintained between why and how)

Explanation



Meaning of the sentence: The sentence mentions a survey conducted by a magazine. The survey asks the readers of the magazine: (a) why they work late and (b) how their absence from home affects their families.

The sentence has two parts, mentioned above, that follow the verb asked. Both the parts need to be parallel for the sentence to be grammatically correct; they have to be either verb phrases or noun phrases. Additionally, the object of the verb asked is readers and not reasons. Lastly, the verb tenses in both the parts need to be the same.
