Do your first split. Eliminate A & E due to meaning. Comment above.
From there you have to see the pattern for parallelism. Usually the first thing you need to look at when the author presents a list. Here: from reading, from staring, from using

The more questions you do, the more accustomed you will become to these patterns.


As always kudos appreciated.

Hi Shelrod

Option A changes the meaning because it depicts that "reading small print or staring at a computer screen" (along with eyestrain) can also result from a faulty or obsolete corrective lens prescription. It's actually not changing the meaning, it is making the sentence illogical as reading small print or staring at a computer screen cannot result from something.

Hope that helps :)

agree with B.

To add: even if [C] had "not only....but also", it would be incorrect since dual-word markers (not only...but also) can not be used for more than two entities in the list.

hope this helps
