in the highlighted part , we use pronouns like "whose" , "their" to begin each part of the sentence.
and the last part of the sentence "in a style that varies from woman to woman and house to house" does not have a pronoun unlike the preceeding parts of the sentence

only option B does
does any one have an explanation for this

IMO "varies from" is the correct form.
So it's between A and C.
In B "style is varying among" seems incorrect.

Now I think in C "they are in styles"is also not correct.

So I am going with A.

Margaret Courtney-Clarke has traveled to remote dwellings in the Transvaal to photograph the art of Ndebele women, 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.

However I feel we need "are" between 'geometrical symmetries' and 'embellished'.

"their geometrical symmetries embellished with old and new iconography" and "in a style that varies from woman to woman and house to house." do not seem parallel.

"their geometric ..." and "their style ..." are parallel

None of the answers seem entirely correct.
The OA is A and is much beyond my comprehension

B breaks parallelism with "varying" and makes an awkward comparison at the end.

(A)
