I pick C. Though I am not sure if it is OK to start a sentence with "Whereas"

"Whereas" + "owners of condominium apartments have X " || "owners of cooperative apartments have Y"

Actually there is no grammatical (or at least I cant see) mistake in A. If the non-underlined part was ", the owner of a cooperative apartment has ..." I would have picked A.

Is the OA C ?

Yes exactly OA is C

even i thought while attempting this question ,singular to be compared to singular and plural to plural !!!

But somehow this strategy doe not work everywhere ,i had come across questions where this strategy is overriden by other grammar rules !!
also whereas here appeared to lose in front of while !!though this is
a 1000sc question !!!do we have any dedicated set of rule for such questions !!!

1000SC doc has dubious origins. Many OAs mentioned in it are wrong.

I am not sure if there are any rules, lets wait for some expert like incognito1 to comment.

comparison between plural to plural. C is the only option.

A vs C

I think the sentence talks about owners of condominium apartments in general, that are compared to owners of cooperative apartments…- The choice A talks only about one owner of condominium apartment.

True...


Whereas owners of condominium apartments have free and clear title to their dwellings , owners of cooperative apartments have shares in a corporation that owns a building and leases apartments to them.

Whereas correctly used for Modifying entire clause....


Thus answer (C) is correct..

A. The sentence talks about owners of condominium apartments in general, that are compared to owners of cooperative
apartments…- The choice A talks only about one owner of condominium apartment.
B. Same as A.
C. CORRECT.
D. Same as A.
E. ….dwelling that is free and clear – the dwelling is not free and clear but the ownership title of is. The pronoun ‘that’ makes
‘is free and clear’ to refer to dwellings.

I hope it helps...
