(A) taking advantage of off-season demand, standardize -> this is out since standardise is actually not parallel
(B) taking advantage of off-season demand, to standardize -> parallel
(C) taking advantage of off-season demand, standardizing -> this is out
(D) take advantage of off-season demand, standardizing -> take is wrong
(E) take advantage of off-season demand, to standardize-> out

IMO B

B is correct. "to sell" and "taking advantage of the off-season demand" are to be considered one single idea. Otherwise B is also not correct because if they are not together, the format should be "to sell", "to take advantage....." "to standardize" and "to....". Note that the 1st "to" has to be followed by all "to". This does not happen with "taking advantage" which means that it is a part of "to sell".

(B) taking advantage of off-season demand, to standardize
