(A)

The first part of the choice should qualify the realm and the second should start with "who" in order to preserve parallelism

I agree, (A).

B. where the sky was the floor, having the power to give and to take
C. whose floor was the sky, and who has the power of giving and of taking
D. in which the sky was the floor, with the power of giving and taking
Sounds like the sky has the power
E. whose floor was the sky, having the power to give and take

(A) does not give the sentence a new meaning.

(B) is wrong becasue "having" implies the upper realm has the power to give and to take away the breath of life
(C) is definitely wrong because of the use of whose
(D) is wrong for same reason (B) is wrong.
(E) is wrong for same reason (C) is wrong

So (A) it is
