B is incorrect because the use of "the work" changes the meaning of the sentence.

C is incorrect because it uses the prepositional phrase "to his distant employees" where "with his distant employees" is required.

D is incorrect because of the use of "and" which suggests "his distant employees" is either a main clause or the end of a list, even though that is not the case here.

E is incorrect because of the use of "distance employees" instead of "distant employees".

The correct answer is A. The original sentence contains no errors and conveys a clear message.

Advances in networking technology and home computers have made it easy for millions of Americans to work in their homes, often facilitating the communication between the manager, who continues to work on-site at the office, with his distant employees.

Between is used when naming distinct, individual items. Here if you understand the meaning of the sentence and then skim through the options, you'll find the sentence is talking about communication between manager and distant employee working from home. Since two parties are involved, the construction would have BETWEEN X.....AND Y...

A. communication between the manager, who continues to work on-site at the office, with his distant employees
B. communication between the manager, who continues the work on-site at the office, with his distant employees
C. communication between the manager, who continues to work on-site at the office, to his distant employees
D. communication between the manager, who continues to work on-site at the office, and his distant employees -CORRECT
E. communication between the manager, who continues to work on-site at the office, with his distance employees

Advances in networking technology and home computers have made it easy for millions of Americans to work in their homes, often facilitating the communication between the manager, who continues to work on-site at the office, with his distant employees.

Looking at the options only minor difference is observed. The underlined part says that communications happens between the manager and his employees so idiom ‘between X and Y’ is used. We may ignore the modifier ‘who … office’ and check it.

A. communication between the manager, who continues to work on-site at the office, with his distant employees – WRONG. Idiom is incorrect.
B. communication between the manager, who continues the work on-site at the office, with his distant employees – WRONG. Idiom is incorrect.
C. communication between the manager, who continues to work on-site at the office, to his distant employees – WRONG. Idiom is incorrect.
D. communication between the manager, who continues to work on-site at the office, and his distant employees – CORRECT.
E. communication between the manager, who continues to work on-site at the office, with his distance employees – WRONG. Idiom is incorrect.

Answer (D).

Facilitating the communication between the manager AND his employees.
Only d uses the right idiom.

Just for fun, managers don't have employees. Companies have them. Managers have reportees/subordinates

Quickly eliminate B and E:

A. communication between the manager, who continues to work on-site at the office, with his distant employees
B. communication between the manager, who continues the work on-site at the office, with his distant employees
C. communication between the manager, who continues to work on-site at the office, to his distant employees
D. communication between the manager, who continues to work on-site at the office, and his distant employees
E. communication between the manager, who continues to work on-site at the office, with his distance employees

If we ignore the non essential modifier we can eliminate C and D:

A. communication between the manager - with his distant employees
C. communication between the manager - to his distant employees
D. communication between the manager - and his distant employees

Leaving A as good answer.
