A, C and E are wrong because "Adelphia" is not preceded by "and".

D is wrong because modifier "in 2012" is wrongly placed. Instead of modifying "Sarbanes-Oxley Act" it's modifying the three companies.

If my response was helpful, kindly contribute Kudos.

Per the meaning examples of failures of 3 companies are given which must be parallel -

The corporate accounting scandals causing the failure of giants such as
    Enron,
    Tyco International, and
    Adelphia

Further the Sarbanes-Oxley Act in 2002 requires companies to record and audit each and every source of revenue and cost, thus use of which is correct here...

Thus, Answer must be (C)
