Sell is omitted. Now replace options with sell

A) have been priced to sell, and they are SELL
B) are priced to sell, and they have-SELL
C) are priced to sell, and they do SELL - only this makes sense. :-D :lol:
D) are being priced to sell, and have SELL
E) had been priced to sell, and they have SELL

Could you please explain your choice? I am really confused with the second part of the sentence and do not know how to solove it.

C has the correct construction. are priced to sell and they do sell.. here sell is optional as the meaning is clear without sell..

In an effort to reduce their overstock, many fashion designers have cut prices; their clothes have been priced to sell, and they are.

The immediate understanding is the fashion designers have cut prices, and this was done to price the clothes so that the clothes sell (easily, with low price tag). and they (Clothes OR Designers) are selling.

Only C tells us that the clothes are priced so that they (Clothes) sellout, and they (Clothes) do. This sentence gives us a clear meaning.
