I go for D if it reads .."Or the ways in which they WERE...."

one more for D). It seems to be the best answer.

A) and C) have clear modifier error in 'where'

B) and E) have awkward and incorrect constructions in "was related to some other" and "that each related to some other"

"nor" at least by GMAT rules fits best when "neither" is used.

I eliminated A & B.

E uses "some other" which makes no sense. Cross that off.

I was left debating between C & D. I figured that there has to be more than 1 way to be related, needs to be plural so I end up w/

D
