(A) standing, demonstrating that with sound design and maintenance, wooden buildings can last indefinitely
(B) standing, demonstrating how wooden buildings, when they have sound design and maintenance, can last indefinitely
(C) standing; they demonstrate if a wooden building has sound design and maintenance it can last indefinitely
(D) standing, and they demonstrate wooden buildings can last indefinitely when there is sound design and maintenance
(E) standing, and they demonstrate how a wooden building can last indefinitely when it has sound design and maintenance

Please post your answer if you can explain why each choice is right or wrong or POE.
Thanks

I go with A.

C, D and E are out off the bat because in this context we need 'demonstrating' after a comma. B is out because it sounds incorrect to say that 'buildings have maintenance'.

In A standing and demonstrating are parallel.
in B they has ambiguous antecedent.
In D and E demonstrate is not parallel with standing and they has ambiguous antecedent.
