You can eliminate D and E without worrying about that difference.

D -- "and so" is incorrect or at least wordy
E -- noun-verb agreement ("all kinds...are" not "all kind...is")

Nonetheless..."biggest single component" indicates singular.
"All kinds...are...the biggest single component" doesn't make any sense.
