I would go with C.

"advertise the highest price ....as prominently as the lowest" looks idiomatic.

(C) keeps "as..as.." stylistically close and clear.

C

(A) if you fail to advertise the highest price in a range of prices for a service or product as prominently as that of the lowest, it
"if you fail, you violate" is the correct form

(B) if one fails to advertise the highest price in a range of prices for a service or product as prominently as the lowest price, it
Same as A. "if one fails, one violates"

(C) failure to advertise the highest price in a range of prices for a service or product as prominently as the lowest
- Correct.

(D) failure to advertise as prominently the highest price in a range of prices for a service or product as the lowest
- incorrectly split "as prominently as" distorts the meaning.

(E) failing to advertise as prominently the highest price in a range of prices for a service or products as that of the lowest
- same as D.

(Edited to clean up typos - multiple! :roll:)
