tough one...
A. compares light with bulbs - out
B. close one, but changes the meaning - creating - is an ing modifier that presents the results of the previous clause...
C. same comparison mistake as in A + including - i don't like it..
D. corrects the only mistake in A - comparison error...looks good.
E. same mistake as in B + including - not good.

D is the answer!

A – ‘brighter and whiter’ is compared to ‘traditional incandescent bulbs’ – Wrong
B – ‘brighter and whiter’ is compared to ‘modern headlamps’
C – ‘including’ changes the meaning of the sentence.
D – correct
E – Same as C

D is the right answer

Here is my approach, within 5 seconds, I identify the main subject and main verb. Then, I read the part tat is underlined to find possible flaws. If I cannot find any, then I skim through 5 options to split the answer. In this question, I find that "creating" and "brighter and whiter than" are 2 possible flaws.

A is the answer.

I don't think "ing" modifier is an issue in B.

Hi Sidharth8,
How "brighter & whiter" are compared to MHs.

B. such as those that use halogen and xenon, cast light that is brighter and whiter than those that traditional incandescent bulbs project and create
D. such as those that use halogen and xenon, cast light that is brighter and whiter than what traditional incandescent bulbs project, creating

Between B & D, I find both okay. But in B, can second "those" be an issue ? Light is a singular hence "those" can't be used.
However, in D also, use of "what" seems to be in an issue. But still D seems better than B, also because D is shorter.

My friend, I would like to say that your reasoning about D is not right. D is not the best choice because it is shorter. It is the only correct answer choice among the offered ones. Let me explain why. Plug B in the original sentence and see what happens:

Modern headlamps, such as those that use halogen and xenon, cast light that is brighter and whiter than those that traditional incandescent bulbs project and create the illusion that they are safer and better.

First, what does "those" refer to? Halogen and xenon? Hm... The comparison is between the headlamps and the light that they emit. The sentence would have been better if it said cast light that is better and whiter than that (the light) that traditional bulbs project.

Second, there is a meaning problem with project and create. The sentence literally says that "traditional bulbs project (light?) and create the illusion that they are safer and better". Okay, sounds not too bad. But... The meaning infers that the first type of bulbs (halogen and xenon) are supposed to be better, i.e. emit brighter and whiter light, creating the illusion ... .

So, answer choice D resolves the above issues: cast light that is brighter and whiter than what traditional incandescent bulbs project, creating. Here, light from halogen and xenon lamps is compared with something (some other light) which turns to be a phrase "what traditional bulbs project", and fancy "brighter and whiter light (from halogen and xenon lamps)" leads to creation of illusion.
