Was super confused with this question. I ruled out the following options for reason as stated:

Option A: Comparison is made between a singular MS theses with plural PHD theses and the verb should be 'are' instead of 'is'.
Option C: Meaningless causation.
Option D: Verbs used to describe 'theses' should be 'are' instead of 'is'.

Picked option E and post review of explanations, could see as to why it is incorrect. Just have a query, shouldn't 'whereas' be used post description of a statement to imply contrast.? For example: I am good at grasping concepts, whereas my brother is not.

"Whereas" and "While" can both be used to depict contrast.

Quick question about the clauses in B. I eliminated B because I thought there were two independent clauses connected with the conjunction "while". My thinking was that if it was a conjunction such as "but" then it would be alright. Could someone please help me understand this concept better? Thanks in advance
