E.

The use of because doesnt seem appropriate. Also D is wrong because it is unnecessarily wordy

My choice is B,

I didn't go for E because the second clause doesn't clearly show what exactly is the difference. But I may be wrong.

Can anyone explain why 'additionally' in the original is wrong? It sounds weird there, but what't the rule?

they has no clear antecedent - choose D

but then, "composition is of" is incorrect! will go with E

B is wrong because this is'nt a cause- and- effect relationship...because means " literal" cause and effect......

LETS CHECK IT HERE
-- has - " being composed of " caused the difference ? NO !!!!!
It is better to use a qualifier " in that ---- it means " being composed of ......" is the only certain way in which the two courts differ......

JACK DIFFERS FROM JILL BECAUSE JACK IS MORE INTELLIGENT....... WRONG
JACK DIFFERS FROM JILL IN THAT JACK IS MORE INTELLIGENT....... RIGHT

whenever i see the word "because" i substitute the word "caused by" in place of "because" and check whether the meaning conveyed is same or if sentence changes the meaning.

By the above rule we can eliminate A,B,C.
Between D and E, composed is better than composition .
Hence E .
Hope this helps .

another reason to eliminate D.
In D their is a possessive pronoun which has no predecessor.
