The steel industry has changed radically over the last two decades, as large, integrated
companies such as Bethlehem Steel once conducted operations from mining at one
end of the process to shipping at the other have greatly downsized, or in some cases
shut down altogether.
A. as large, integrated companies such as Bethlehem Steel
B. as large, integrated companies, such as Bethlehem Steel, that
C. with large, integrated companies, such as Bethlehem Steel, that
D. while large, integrated companies, such as Bethlehem Steel, that
E. and large, integrated companies such as Bethlehem Steel

Why is option C wrong in this question? In general can an expert please highlight the correct usage of "with"? I generally see that options with "with" are wrong.

you need to understand the meaning of the question first.
as here serves a very VITAL function! it is a conjunction (read about FANBOYS), and it is used to provide reasoning for the first sentence.
you can switch as with because, and see how it perfectly makes sense.

from all these options, B should be the correct answer.
