Definitely not A,

subordinate clause (Although not quite as liquid an investment as a money-market account) is wrongly modifying Financial experts

there is a 'its' in the following sentence, which has to refer back to a noun or pronoun in the preceding clause.

So between B and D, i will go with D

because money market account cannot be liquid. Only investments can be liquid.

Also the "its" should refer to investment not account.

Agree with you, A cannot be the OA. Anyway, D should not be the best. "while" do not introduce the contrast. B should be the best

Choices A, C and E do not have subjects and therefore can be eliminated immediately. Choices B and D each have a subject - in both cases, the word it turns the modifying phrase into an adverbial clause. However, choice D contains a new error: The word as has been moved, leaving money-market stranded in the middle of the sentence with no function. While it may sound atrocious, choice B is the 'best' answer

Good Q.

I fell for A as I did not review clearly

removed E because it has one as

Removed C & D as they used while

Between A & B, I picked A as I focused on the pronoun reference error.

As some one else pointed out A has a modifier error.

In B we know logically that it cannot refer to MMA and is referring to COD. Why is it unambiguous here? Just because the modifier is turned into an adverbial clause?

I'd be happy to but kindly provide kudos for the effort ... I need to test myself against the GMAT Club test but don't have the money to do so, so I need kudos and posts! Thanks for understanding!
