The condominium corporation is singular so we shoul use its instead of their. So eliminate B and C.
E - is awkward.
I oscilate between A and D, but i go with A. this one seems right to me.

What is OA?

A it is; B & C are out with pronoun issues and D & E are out with modifier issues.

Sentence has pronoun and passive voice issues.

(A) the condominium corporation took into account only the concerns of its prospective clients [“its” correctly points to singular “the condominium corporation “ - Hold it]

(B) the condominium corporation has only taken into account the concerns of their prospective clients[“the condominium corporation” is singular, “their” is incorrect reference – eliminate it]

(C) the condominium corporation only took their prospective clients’ concerns into account[“the condominium corporation” is singular, “their” is incorrect reference – eliminate it]

(D) the concerns of its prospective clients only were taken into account by the condominium corporation [This is good one but has passive voice issue – eliminate it]

(E) prospective clients had their concerns only taken into account by the condominium corporation [Definitely not – incorrect past perfect tense issue and passive voice issue – eliminate it]

in B the perfect tense isn’t required. Besides, ‘their’ has no antecedent. Again C wrongly uses ‘their’. in D the placement of ‘only’ is wrongand its passive voice. E changes the meaning and has a modifier error. A wins
