IMO C,

As that correctly refers to the treatise while maintaining parallelism.

quite relevant


When they are acting as advocates for a cause, people often say they are “advocating for”—say, traffic safety. This is not as widely accepted as “campaigning for” or “working toward.” Saying you are “advocating for the blind” leaves a lot of listeners wondering what it is you advocate for them. If you can substitute “advocate” for “advocate for,” you should do so: “I advocate for higher pay for teachers” becomes “I advocate higher pay for teachers.”

OA is E.

'argue for' is the correct idiom. C is a close one.
But, "advocate for" is not idiomatic.

We should use "advocate" alone.

E,

Question of Parallelism
a treatise arguing for ... and for...

Also,E is better than D as D changes the meaning from arguing to advocating..
