Clouds are formed from the evaporation of the oceans’ water that is warmed by the Sun and rises high into the atmosphere, condensing in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust.
A. Clouds are formed from the evaporation of the oceans’ water that is warmed by the Sun and rises high into the atmosphere, condensing in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust.
B. Clouds form by the Sun’s warmth evaporating the water in the oceans, which rises high into the atmosphere, condensing in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust.
C. Warmed by the Sun, ocean water evaporates, rises high into the atmosphere, and condenses in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust to form clouds.
D. The water in the oceans evaporates, warmed by the Sun, rises high into the atmosphere, and condenses in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust, which forms clouds.
E. Ocean water, warmed by the Sun, evaporates and rises high into the atmosphere, which then condenses in tiny droplets on minute particles of dust to form as clouds.

C for me.

Maintains parallelism and says what it needs to say clearly.

"Clouds" are formed from "oceans' water " rather than " the Sun's warmth" , so B is out.
" to form" in C and E makes "ocean water" like an object with senses and mind. This is weird, thus eliminate C and E.
" the water in the oceans evaporates" is the effect of the cause " warmed by the Sun", so D seems incorrect with the unfavourable position of "warmed by the sun".
I'm left with A.

A seems correct because the choices are between A and C but "to form clods" is awakward....so left with A.

Torn between A and C, only A uses the correct dependent clause.

OA is C. It uses the modifier and maintains the sequence of the events in order.

Darn it! This is a one of those scientific routine phenomenon sentences.
C is also the most concise and describes the sequence in the simple present tense (it repeats day after day...).
:beat
