St. John's Newfoundland, lies on the same latitude as Paris, france, but in spring St. John's residents are less likely to be sitting at outdoor cafes than to be bracing themselves against arctic chills, shoveling snow, or seeking shelter from a raging northeast storm.

A residents are less likely to be sitting at outdoor cafes than to be bracing themselves against arctic chills, shoveling snow, or seeking
B residents are less likely to sit at outdoor cafes, and more to be brace themselves against arctic chills, shovel snow, or be seeking
C residents are less likely to be sitting at outdoor cafes, and more likely to be bracing themselves against arctic chills, shoveling snow, or to be seeking
D residents, instead of sitting at outdoor cafes, they are more likely to be brace themselves against arctic chills, shovel snow, or seek
E residents, instead of sitting at outdoor cafes, are more likely to brace themselves against arctic chills, shovel snow, or to be seeking

B is incorrect in several parts. “to be brace” is grammatically wrong. Also it has a parallel problem with “to be” and shovel. Also, “less likely than” would be better than “less likely” and “more to be”.
C is inefficient in the use of less likely to be and more likely to be instead of less likely ... than...
Also, arctic chills, shoveling snow, and to be seeking are not parallel.
D shouldn’t have “they”. “To be brace” is also incorrect.
E : brace, shovel, or “to be” aren’t parallel.
A is the best choice.
