Almost sure for C.

D and E have problem of "failure to advertise as prominently the highest price...". Here stress is on failure to advertise prominently rathan than failure to advertise highest price.

the bureau wants .. the highest prices to be advertised as prominently as the lowest prices. "Prominently" must stay as close to the "lowest price" as possible. In "D" - "prominently" is adding more value to the "highest price", hence - out.
