A. the architecture firm took into account only the concerns of its client --> correct

B. the architecture firm has only taken into account the concerns of their client --> "their" (plural) refers to firm (singular), which is a mistake

C. the architecture firm only took their clients' concerns into account --> same as B

D. the concerns of its clients only were taken into account by the architecture firm --> in this construction "those" wouldn't properly refer to "concerns" anymore

E. clients had their concerns only taken into account by the architecture firm --> same as B, also similar to D

My explanation is not that good, however, I am certain that A is correct

B - SV issue
C - SV issue
D - modifier issue as during the survey should modify the architecture firm
E - modifier and meaning issue
Left with A but still u think The meaning is un clear.. it should be the architecture firm took only into account the concerns of its client , not those of surrounding homeowners . This compares the concerns of only client being taken and not homeowners
