right side starts with "...from"

now we need plural hence BE remains
costs associated from

answer E, parallelism

costs associated with and costs associated from improving are not parallel
in E
costs arising from maintaining and costs arising from improving

"Arising from" is the correct phrase, but the sentence must also be parallel. So, option E is our best bet.

B) costs associated from

D) cost arising from
E) costs arising from

from maintaining... and from continuously improving arre parallel

that leaves us with choice B ,D an E

arising from is more idiomatic than associated from... and also costs should be plural

so choice E is the best
