(C)----> by including
(D)---> no parallelism.

Hi, there are a few errors on C.

C: by including reminders for watching the endorsement, comparing signatures, and viewing

First off, the GMAT prefers reminders TO rather than reminders FOR.
Secondly, if you put this option in with the entire sentence, you're left with a run-on sentence.

The principal feature... is X that the company blah blah blah, by including reminders for watching the endorsement, comparing the signatures, and viewing the watermark while holding the check to the light.

See how a reader is left sort of asking... what next? Therefore you can eliminate C.

Re: C, you can also think of it this way:

The underlined information is a list modifying "instructions" -- it explains what the instructions serve to do.

If the clause "that the company hopes will help merchants confirm a check's authenticity" is eliminated, it becomes easier to see how the modification works:

The principal feature of the redesigned checks is a series of printed instructions....including reminders to watch the endorsement, compare signatures, and view the watermark while holding the check to the light.

It does not, however, make grammatical sense to do what (C) does:

The principal feature of the redesigned checks is a series of printed instructions....by including reminders to watch the endorsement, compare signatures, and view the watermark while holding the check to the light.

Basically, (C) is "playing" with a slightly different sentence template.

1) X does y by including abc...

BUT, the sentence in question is actually doing this:

2) X contains the following parts, including abc...
