E.

all option beginning "and" beginning new clause but the prev clause is dangling, incomlete.

yup E it is.

A and B uses conjunction instead of a modifier.

C and D uses illogical comparison

so E is the only one standing.

why about C) ? i mean isnt "that" referring to "minimum".

"also shortens the advance-purchase requirement for family travel to a minimum of seven days rather than that (a minimum) of fourteen"

Between C and E I think E is better. It is more concise and the meaning is correct.
