D is correct

'to seek' is needed not 'seeking
and you seek support from someone. 'of' may sound correct but is less correct than 'from'
Also ' one of' is wordy and can be condensed to 'among'

These are the 3 reasons i can cite.

thanks...."support of " and "support from" is kind of confusing.

1. i am in support of war on iraq.

2. i need financial support [b]from/of[/b] my parents.

does anyone know the rule for using support of and support from ?

you are thinking correctly.

'support of' is used when you are showing your support towards someone/something

'support from' is used when you want someone/something to support you

B, C, & E are eliminated since we need 'support from' here

'among the first' is correct, hence answer is D.

right option D, as it follows parallelism,
'to seek support from' parallel to 'to increase income by'
