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.
