Shoppers in sporting goods stores, unlike in department stores, do very little impulse shopping, not buying a pair of skis and a boomerang when they come in for a basketball, but they leave with a basketball only.

A. in department stores, do very little impulse shopping, not buying a pair of skis and a boomerang when they come in for a basketball, but they leave with a basketball only
B. in department stores, shop impulsively very little; someone who comes in for a basketball will leave with a basketball only and not also buy a pair of skis and a boomerang as well
C. those in department stores, do very little impulse shopping, do not buy a pair of skis and a boomerang when they come in for a basketball, but leave with only a basketball
D. those in department stores, do very little impulse shopping; someone who comes in for a basketball will leave with a basketball only and not buy a pair of skis and a boomerang as well
E. department stores, shop impulsively very little; someone will not buy a pair of skis and a boomerang when they come in for a basketball but will leave with only a basketball

The answer is D. I thought that the D has a redundancy of 'and ~ as well'. How about C? What is incorrect in C?

shud be D

A, B and E can be ruled out straightaway, coz its Shoppers in sporting goods stores being compared to shopper in dept stores, not shoppers to dept stores.

in C and D,
C has "do not buy..., do very little..." which doesnt sound right. Also the ending phrase - "but leave with only...... " is awkward
