'E' it is.

ABC are out by the use of stills

But in E, do we need to duplicate "where"?

I think D will do.

OA is E

OE:

Parallelism

The sentence is making two points about MInnesota, but one point is introduced by that and the other is introduced by where. The same word should be used to introduce each point; either that...and that or where....and where.

D. While grammatically correct, this sentence needs a conjunction to show the logical relationship between the two independent clauses rather than the semi-colon that implies their equality
E. Correct The use of where... and where creates two parallel clauses that clearly modify Minnesota
