Unlike etiquette or other social skills, many people are not willing to admit to the degree in which they need to work on their listening skills.

A. Unlike etiquette or other social skills, many people are not willing
to admit to the degree in which they need to work on their listening skills -- Illogically compares skills to people
B. Unlike etiquette or other social skills, which many people are willing to admit they lack, they need to work on their listening skills -- 'They' is ambiguous
C. Unlike etiquette or social skills, listening skills make people unwilling to admit the degree they need to work on them -- 'They' and 'Them' are ambiguous terms
D. Many people, recognizing that they need to work on their etiquette or other social skills, are not willing to admit they need work on their listening skills -- Looks good!
E. Many people have an unwillingness to admit to the degree in which they need to work on their listening skills, unlike etiquette or other social skills -- Illogically compares degree of skills to 'etiquette and other skills', not to the degrees of those skills. Also, idiomatically speaking, 'degree to which' is better than 'degree in which'

A- wrong comparison
B - same as A
C- comparison is corrected ..but it changes the meaning
D-looks ok
E-"to the degree in which" looks unidiomatic .
