Expansion is singular - Eliminate A and C
In B 'it' can refer to expansion of market both. Ambiguity. Eliminate B
E is so awkward it shouldnt have been a choice :P

Ans D it is.

Professor Clipper is one of the few analysts who believe that the expansion of the new home market will accelerate while those of resale slows.

A) those of resale slows
B) it slows for resale
C) those of resale slow
D) the expansion of the retail market slows
E) there is slowing for the retail market's expansion

The part before and after the while should be parallel. Thus, there are 2 error in the given sentence:
1. SV- The expansion is singular and cannot refer to those which is plural.
2. Meaning- Expansion of resale home market does not make sense.

We can eliminate A & C for 1 reason.
In B, It slows for resale does not make sense.
E is incorrect due to parallelism. Voice issue - active & passive.
Correct option is D, which clears both the error.

Is there a meaning change here? A-C talk about "resale" while D and E change it to "the retail market." These are two different concepts. I agree that A and C are wrong because of S/V, and E is plain awkward. But, B has the vague "it" while D changes meaning.

A) those of resale slows
B) it slows for resale
C) those of resale slow
D) the expansion of the retail market slows
E) there is slowing for the retail market's expansion

The difference between resale or retail is significant. . If it is retail in the original version, then this thread is not worth pursuing. If it is only resale and retails is rather a typo, then somebody should say so. At least at this stage, Veritas should intercept and clarify the status.

Wow, very good catch! :) After I re-read the question, your point makes sense. Thanks.

When i read this question i see parallelism or comparison. one thing will accelerate and the other will slow. What will accelerate ? expansion of the new home market. So what will slow ? the expansion of the retail market.

D wins.
