IMO A is correct.

Reasons:
1. Its a contrast b/w how and what parents want.
2. Sentence has MAY.Remember, you should not change the sentence context in uncertainity cases. So, only A and B are showing this while other choices are for surety.
3. Despite the fact - is used for some confirmed results so MAY is unneccessary but this choice changes the uncertaininty. So, incorrect.
4. MUCH is correct in A. MUCH is used for AGREE and not for PARENTS.

Whenever you are not sure of such cases of MUCH/MANY, just remove the subject and try to connect it to the object:

However much parents may agree that the instruction of moral

It is somewhat similar to say - How much they want.


Hope this helps you.
