"One" along with "Only" is redundant.
So C and D are out.
A and B are out - Not Parallel.
E is the right choice.

(A) and (B) not parallel, it'not clear (collection or book)

it is one book that is mentioned, so (C) and (D) are ambiguous, since it could be two books!

(E) is the shortest and best answer! cheers
