It's concise.

Using POE, B, C, E should be easily eliminated.

A - original sentence is right as it conveys the meaning right
B - they is used before noun is specified
C - changes meaning
D - changes the meaning. companies are aware about the connotations but not necessary know those connotations
E - Lengthy

A. With an awareness that there are connotations associated with the numbers 1 and 2 and the letters A and B - long and redundant

B. Because the numbers 1 and 2 and the letters A and B have connotations they are aware of - Change in meaning. Ambiguous 'They'

C. Because of an awareness of the numbers 1 and 2 and the letters A and B having connotations - "Having'' makes it Passive....wrong on GMAT.

D. Aware of the connotations of the numbers 1 and 2 and the letters A and B - Concise and precise

E. Since the numbers 1 and 2 and the letters A and B have connotations associated with them and they are aware of it - Long. Change in meaning. Ambiguous 'They' and 'Them.

Correct me if i am wrong...

Hi smartguy595

Connotations are by themselves associated with something else...
Connotations associated with is redundant and would mean associated with something associated with ...
For example : Connotations of discipline ..... it reveals something associate with discipline... we don't need to repeat the associated part

As for the second part of your question, here with is being used as a part of ' associated with'. Not by itself!!

I hope I've made it clear why A is wrong..

My 2 cents:
NOTE: in GMAT whenever, a modifier opens a sentence and is followed by a comma + noun (subject) as in this case – modifier MUST modify the noun. i.e. it must act as a noun modifier. (Which/What)

Here, option A acts as a adverbial modifier – (how/why/when) – modifying the verb choose
How are companies choosing the number?
Companies with an awareness that there are connotations associated with the numbers 1 & 2 and letters A & B CHOOSE numbers such as 697 or 483 to label products.

We need an option which can answer following question:
WHAT are companies conducting consumer taste tests of foods or beverages typically aware of?
Companies conducting consumer taste tests of food or beverages are typically aware of the connotations of the numbers 1 & 2 and letters A & B.

Simple test to verify if modifier makes sense with noun (subject) after comma:
(Noun/Subject) + (helping verb based on MAIN VERB) + modifier
Companies ARE aware of connotations….
