I chose E for clarity and parallism, but I would like to know why A?

It is A. In B, "their" could refer to genetic irregularities or dogs.
E is wrong, it changes the meaning. It's parallel either. Sorry can't explain this better.

So from this question, can we infer that one of the idioms is

Not so much that X as that Y ?

(Here X and Y are independent clauses)

In choices C,D,E 'it' doesn't have clear referent

In Choice B 'their' doesn't have clear referent

As already mentioned the correct idiom is 'not so much X as Y'
X and Y needs be parallel

Choice A has correct usage
