The parallelism marker "Either" is used here so we need to insure the respect of parallelism principles,or if not necessary

Resided and worked either in the same location, or [u]were in close proximity [/u] the presence of "were" drops the parallelism principle

Either resided and worked in the same location, or the close proximity "the" is followed by a noun not an adjective

In the same location either resided and worked or were in the close proximity this sentence is the combination of A and B reasons

same error for D

so the right answer is E

D has parallelism error.

ABC are awkward construction

E is the answer
