I agree with E. Semi-colons can be used as commas as well.

Here, 'Complaint or' is the clue. or fill out a police report... So we can eliminate B,C and D. Is there any need to use comma after housing and before and?. No. Since it is wrong. Ans is 'A'

IMO A

D & E are out because ';' can connect only main clause(complete sentence) which is absent in both the cases.
so left with A,B,C.
here structure seems to be:-
residents will be able to ***** or ***** or******
which is best stated in 'A'

I agree with E, but I am doubtful about the semicolon in the end.

Did not catch it up until 4 min then got to find Answer is "A"

A. complaint or fill out a police report and then meet with a lawyer, get help with crisis and safety planning,
housing and emergency grants---"city residents meet with a lawyer or meet with meet with advocates" reveals a clear and concise sense also on right track of II'sm.

Do correct me if am wrong..
