I really like those 1000 SC questions, I believe it is really good to practice. But why the hell is there sometimes no OA?! It makes it even more confusing...

I believe each person who posts a problem should provide the OA within it, should be one the the forum rule :-)

I go for C, as for me the correct idiom is "support of" I might be wrong... It would be interesting to know the difference between support "from" and "of" .

Corporation are something and private donors are someone so it is very confusing.

In addition C also keep the parallelism on my opinion.

OA please

The answer cannot be option C because (C) among Britain’s first national museums to seek support of..distorts the intended meaning. According to the question, the museum was the first museum in Britain to seek support and...options C tells us that it was among Britain's first national museums. Being Britain's first national museum has nothing to do with the first national museum to seek support from...
so IMO D

+1 D

An infinitive is parallel only with other infinitive.
Support from is used when the subject receives the support.

IMO also D
Becuase of parallel construction "to seek ..... to increase" and ears feel that right way of saying is to seek help from.

Although D looks little wordy. It is the correct choice. The only close competition with D is C that is out because of "support of".
