I think this problem is not so simple. I am divided between B and E. there are two idioms:

not so much by ..... but by.............
so much by...................... as by.............

i think, it is B.

by considering not/but u r leaving out so which also can be included for best construct, it includes an idiom as well as parellilism ..

.." not so much by ....as by " -- is the best suitable here


i will go with E
