Another A.

Good question with parallism/comparison. Almost got caught on D.

Answer is A but isn't starting a sentence with "Whereas" against proper English or does anything go with GMAC and its English ?

The sentence compares “tiny tubes in mammals” and “tiny tubes in birds”.

A) Compare “tiny tubes in mammals” and “tiny tubes in birds”. Parallel structure: “whereas in mammals the tiny tubes …, in birds the tubes…”  Correct as is
B) Unparalleled structure  Incorrect
C) Compare “mammal” with “birds’ tubes”  Incorrect
D) Compare “mammal” with “the tubes in bird”  Incorrect
E) Correctly compare “the tiny tubes” in mammals with “the tubes” in bird but incorrectly use modifier “which in.. lines”. This modifier is far away from the noun “tiny tubes” to which it modifies  Incorrect

A. Whereas in mammals the tiny tubes that convey nutrients to bone cells are arrayed in parallel lines, in birds the tubes --- Correct comparison and parallelism

B. Whereas the tiny tubes for the conveying of nutrients to bone cells are arrayed in mammals in parallel lines, birds have tubes that – wrong comparison of tubes with birds.

C. Unlike mammals, where the tiny tubes for conveying nutrients to bone cells are arrayed in parallel lines, birds€™ tubes – 1. Wrong comparison of mammals with tubes. 2. Where referring to mammals is wrong

D. Unlike mammals, in whom the tiny tubes that convey nutrients to bone cells are arrayed in parallel lines, the tubes in birds--- wrong comparison

E. Unlike the tiny tubes that convey nutrients to bone cells, which in mammals are arrayed in parallel lines, in birds the tubes – 1.which is having touch rule problem. 2. The symmetry is unparallel.

Split1) Parallel Structure for comparison. "Whereas + S + V, S + V" or "Unlike + S, S + V". B, C, D, and E are out because of this reason.

Split2) Direct/Indirect. Verb form = convey = direct = correct. Noun form = the conveying = indirect = incorrect. B is out.

A Correct.
B "Whereas" improperly compares "tiny tubes" with "birds."
C "Unlike" improperly compares "mammals" with "birds' tubes."
D "Unlike" improperly compares "mammals" with "the tubes in birds."
E "Which" modifies nutrients (or bone cells) improperly when it should modify the "tiny tubes."

Whereas in mammals the tiny tubes that convey nutrients to bone cells are arrayed in parallel lines, in birds the tubes form a random pattern.

A. Whereas in mammals the tiny tubes that convey nutrients to bone cells are arrayed in parallel lines, in birds the tubes - Correct
B. Whereas the tiny tubes for the conveying of nutrients to bone cells are arrayed in mammals in parallel lines, birds have tubes that - distorts the contrast ; “tiny tubes for the conveying of nutrients” distorts the original meaning “tiny tubes that convey nutrients”
C. Unlike mammals, where the tiny tubes for conveying nutrients to bone cells are arrayed in parallel lines, bird's tubes - Where incorrectly refers to mammals ; illogical comparison between mammals and birds’ tubes
D. Unlike mammals, in whom the tiny tubes that convey nutrients to bone cells are arrayed in parallel lines, the tubes in birds - Illogical comparison
E. Unlike the tiny tubes that convey nutrients to bone cells, which in mammals are arrayed in parallel lines, in birds the tubes - In “Unlike X, Y”, both X and Y need to be nouns or pronouns. In this option, Y is a prepositional phrase “in birds” ; Also we are not talking about tiny tubes in general

Answer A
