(A) Like English and Italian, each of which have elaborate rules for forming S-V agreement, we need 'has' not 'have'
(B) Similar to the elaborate rules that English and Italian have to form Wrong Comparison: sign languages are compared to rules
(C) Just as English and Italian have elaborate rules for forming Correct!
(D) As with English and Italian, both having elaborate rules to form 'As with' is not idiomatic
(E) In the same way that there are elaborate rules used to form English and Italian Terrible!

Like English and Italian, each of which have elaborate rules for forming words and sentences, so sign languages have rules for individual signs and signed sentences.

(A) Like English and Italian, each of which have elaborate rules for forming -- subject verb agreement -- each ... have
(B) Similar to the elaborate rules that English and Italian have to form -- illogical comparison - compare "rules" and "sign languages"
(C) Just as English and Italian have elaborate rules for forming - Correct
(D) As with English and Italian, both having elaborate rules to form - "having" is not correct. "having" indicates that something started in the past, is happening right now, and may not always be occurring. That would not apply well here.
(E) In the same way that there are elaborate rules used to form English and Italian - Bad comparison. "In the same way that there are rules . . ., so to sign languages"

Answer C
