(A) In feudal Europe, urban areas developed from clusters of houses where peasants lived and commuted to farmlands in the countryside, unlike homesteading policies in the American West that
- comparing europe to policies

(B) In feudal Europe, urban areas developed from clusters of houses where peasants lived and from which they commuted to farmlands in the countryside, but in the American West homesteading policies

(C) Unlike feudal Europe where urban areas developed from clusters of houses where peasants lived and commuted to farmlands in the countryside, the American Westâ€™s homesteading policies
- American West's is wrong. Comparing Europe to policies

(D) Unlike feudal Europe where urban areas developed from clusters of houses where peasants lived and commuted to farmlands in the countryside, the homesteading policies of the American West
- Same problem as C

(E) Urban areas developed from clusters of houses where peasants lived from which they commuted to farmlands in the countryside in feudal Europe, unlike the American West where homesteading policies
- 'where peasants lived from which ..' is awkward

I'll go with B. use of 'but' avoids making a comparison betwen Europe and the term American West policies

In feudal Europe, urban areas developed from clusters of houses where peasants lived and commuted to farmlands in the countryside, unlike homesteading policies in the American West that[u][/u] required residency on the land itself in order to obtain eventual ownership.

(B) In feudal Europe, urban areas developed from clusters of houses where peasants lived and from which they commuted to farmlands in the countryside, but in the American West homesteading policies

(E) Urban areas developed from clusters of houses where peasants lived from which they commuted to farmlands in the countryside in feudal Europe, unlike the American West where homesteading policies

This is not testing whether we can see some awkwardness in the phrase, "from which they commuted." This is a measure of whether we can match feudal Europe, with another parallel place. B, which compares in feudal Europe with the American West, walks over the rest of the choices that reason choice.

In E, because courtside is pushed to the end, it merely modifies the farmlands rather than the urban areas, which out of sync with the intended comparison. In E, the comparison effectively remains between urban areas generally ( may be anywhere in the world) and the American West.
