+1 for E.

The presence of comparison idiom "not so much by" un-underlined part indicates that we have to look out for two things:
1) Correct idiomatic usage = not so much X as Y is the correct idiom => A, B and C are out.
2) Proper comparison = D is out as it is not parallel. by ability .... is not parallel to a vocabulary that is ...

E wins.

Agree with E.
not so much X as Y is the correct idiom.

But this kind of question is atypical GMAT nowadays as it doesnt test meaning but plain English idioms.
