Checking C-D:

Between the two of them, Ken is the tallest.

The comparative degree should have been used instead of superlative since a comparison ‘between’ two people has been made. ‘Taller’ should replace ‘tallest’ so as to make the sentence correct. The pair C-D is hence invalid.

Checking B-F:

Trials need to be both extensive and exhaustive to achieve the required credibility.

The above sentence is correct both grammatically and contextually.

Checking A-F:

The World Humanitarian Day provides an opportunity to celebrate the spirit that inspires benevolent work around the globe.

The above sentence is correct both grammatically and contextually.

Checking C-E:

The platform brings apps and services from third parties, which help sellers manage various aspects of selling goods via Amazon.
