Product - singular, therefore boxes should be singular. D E are out.
The disposable is correct, eliminate C.
Where is for places, A seems best imo

B,C,E are out at first glance.

Between A and D IMO, we have to use IN WHICH rather than INSIDE WHICH.

A lot of you have eliminated D for incorrect reasons

D is incorrect because you can't package PRODUCT in boxes, you can package A product in A box or PRODUCTS in BOXES but not PRODUCT IN BOXES

(A) the disposable plastic box in which they
(B) the disposable plastic box where they
(C) a disposable plastic box in which to
(D) disposable plastic boxes inside which they
(E) the disposable plastic boxes in which to


Correct answer: A

A: Correct
B: "where they package" suggests that the packaging occurs inside the disposable plastic box
C: "To package their product" suggests that the replacement is for a generic "disposable plastic box" rather than, as the original sentence states, the box in which the manufacturer packages the product.
D: The plural "disposable plastic boxes" does not match with singular "product."
E: The plural "disposable plastic boxes" as in D, and "in which to package their product" as in C.
