this one tests you on pronouns --

Option B - Incorrect

"they can potentially devastate individual investors in that their" -- the first "they" refers to "bear markets".
the second pronoun "their" should logically refer to "institutional investors". Incorrect.

Option C - Incorrect

"for individual investors they are potentially devastating, because their" -- the same form of the pronoun should logically refer to two different things "bear markets" and "individual investors".

Option D - Incorrect

the pronoun "it" does not have a logical antecedent.

Option E - Incorrect

Same thing -- the pronoun "it" does not have a logical antecedent.

I got the answer right by different approach.

A. they are potentially devastating for individual investors, whose
B. they can potentially devastate individual investors in that their - Meaning Issue. Original sentence bear markets are devasting individula investors it doesn't talks about capability. While option B talks about capability.
C. for individual investors they are potentially devastating, because their Meaning Issue - In Original sentence whose describes institutional investors and we dont know whether nest eggs bla bla is reason for this.

In D and E pronoun-antecedent error. It cannot refer to plural Bear Markets.
