A. Due to Nokia, which sells more cell phones than any other company does, but also has the lowest average selling price, so it has lower profits than many companies that sell fewer phones. (due to Nokia .....so it has does not make a cohesive sentence)

B. Selling more cell phones than any other company and having lowest average selling price, Nokia’s profits are lower than many companies that sell fewer phones. (Nokia's profits is not selling more cell phones, Nokia is selling more cellphones)

C. Nokia, which sells more cell phones than any other company does, also has the lowest average selling price, so it has lower profits than many companies that sell fewer phones. (Correct)

D. Nokia has lower profits than many companies that sell fewer phones because Nokia, which sells more cell phones than any other company does, and also has the lowest average selling price. (too much reference to nokia in this sentence which makes it wordy. Also, second part of the sentence is not cohesive)

E. Selling more cell phones than any other company and also having lowest average selling price, so Nokia has lower profits than many companies that sell fewer phones. (A sentence that begins with a gerund should follow a noun after coma, here it is followed by so Nokia)
