I'm getting pretty mad seeing such questions in my workbook. Not because they are tough or smth, but because the OA is incorrect, and no explanation why the OA is the OA.
B is the most concise and grammatically correct answer.

there is nothing wrong with either B or C, and as such the question is fundamentally flawed. please understand that using practice questions from dubious sources can actually hurt your performance, and be careful which problem sources you use..

B is run on sentence. It should be separated by ";" . Now the current structure of "B" is "IC, IC , IC" which is wrong. Hence C is correct.

What makes you think B is a run on sentence?

The question stem says

"We live in a world in which crime is rampant, children are recalcitrant, change is the only constant, and uncertainty prevails. "

Children are recalcitrant - IC
Change is the only constant - IC

Here IC separated by Commas instead of collan hence I stated as run on.. If I m wrng kindly help In my understanding regarding the same. Thanks

(A) children are recalcitrant, change is the only constant, and uncertainty prevails.
(B) children are recalcitrant, change is the only constant, and uncertainty is prevalent.
(C) in which children are recalcitrant, in which change is the only constant, and in which uncertainty is prevalent.
(D) where children are recalcitrant, where change is the only constant and where uncertainty is prevalent.
(E) where children are recalcitrant, change is the only constant, and uncertainty is prevalent

This question is a poor tool for practicing SC.
Its source is not official.
It creates conflict between two general rules: correct grammar and concision.
It also contravenes a few specific, subtler rules.

There are better and similar questions, for example, here, here, and here.
