As the etched lines on computer memory chips have become thinner and the chips’ circuits more complex, both the power of the chips and the electronic devices they drive have vastly increased.
(A) the chips’ circuits more complex, both the power of the chips and the electronic devices they drive have
(B) the chips’ circuits more complex, the power of both the chips and the electronic devices they drive has
(C) the chips’ circuits are more complex, both the power of the chips and the electronic devices they drive has
(D) their circuits are more complex, the power of both the chips and the electronic devices they drive have
(E) their circuits more complex, both the power of the chips and the electronic devices they drive have

One question about the parallelism in this question as the follow:
"As the etched lines ..... have become thinner and the chips’ circuits more complex...".

The sentence does not sound parallel to me. Isn't it supposed to be like this:

"As the etched lines ..... have become thinner and the chips’ circuits have become more complex...".

Many thanks.

B it is.

As the etched lines have become thinner and the chips' circuits [have become] more complex, the power of both the X and the Y has greatly increased.
