Long one....

(A) whose murals are brilliantly colored, their geometrical symmetries embellished with old and new iconography and in a style that varies from woman to woman and house to house Correct!

(B) whose murals are brilliantly colored, their geometrical symmetries are embellished with old and new iconography, and their style is varying among women and houses Awkward...'varying among women and houses' doesn't make any sense

(C) whose murals are brilliantly colored, their geometrical symmetries are embellished with old and new iconography, and they are in styles that vary from woman to woman and house to house The use of 'they' is ambiguous

(D) with murals brilliantly colored, their geometrical symmetries embellished with old and new iconography, and their style varies among women and houses 'whose' is needed to modify women

(E) with murals that are brilliantly colored, their geometrical symmetries embellished with old and new iconography, and their styles vary among women and houses Same as D

p.s. ps_dahiya, thanks for posting these great questions! :P

I got B in the initial response as i was focussing on parallelism

But i guess i has to be A

A in my opinion. Two factors, tense and parallelism.
