My answer is C. Nice question BTW.

C is concise and maintains the parallelism by using - "not by" "but by"

D comes close, but "not produced by" and "but produced by" is not parallel

I rejected A, B and E on the grounds that "the case with most genetically modified...." is awkward.

Barely managed to pick C.

Could eliminate D and E ,as "not produced"...would lead to "profit-minded companies still being responsible although they might not have produced them ( probably they acquired them ).

C

A and B - No. Lacks Parallel structure. Should be "but by"
C - Keep. Not happy with "profit-motivated". It should parallel "who allowed growers to use it free of charge".
D - No. Wordy.
E - No. "the case with most genetcally modified crops..." wrongly modifies the "the papaya was not produced by seed companies"

You are right, OA is C.
But well, from allthose explanations I cannot see the difference between В and C. I'm not a native speaker, so there's no difference for me between "not produced by" and "produced not by" ;)

Can anyone explain the difference more clearly? I would appreciate... :)

You need paralellism

Not by.... but by

B is missing a by after but.

Usually, you have to put the verb out and make the comparison by the predicate of the verb.

Hope it helps.
