Because of the sharp increases in the price of gold and silver, the value of Monica Taylor's portfolio rose as her daughter-in-law's dropped.

A) as her daughter-in-law's dropped

Incorrectly implies the portfolio of her daughter-in-law's dropped. It should convey that the value of her her daughter-in-law's portfolio dropped. INCORRECT

B) while her daughter-in-law's has dropped

Same error as in option A INCORRECT

C) as there was a drop in her daughter-in-law's

Same error as in option A INCORRECT

D) while that of her daughter-in-law's dropped

"that" refers to value and "daughter-in-law's" implies portfolio. So it conveys the intended meaning that value of daughter-in-law's portfolio dropped. CORRECT

E) as it dropped for her daughter-in-law's

Use of "because" and "as" is redundant. Same error as in option A INCORRECT

Hence option D

Correct ans D
A. Wrong comparison between value of Monica Taylor's portfolio and her daughter-in-law's portfolio.
B. Same as A as well as parallelism error of tenses.
C. There was drop is wrong. Comparison error exists.
E. It refers to value. Value for portfolio is wrong.
Since both actions are happening simultaneously so As or while both will work.
D conveys meaning in an appropriate way.
