Should be C.

What do you mean by this : "do you think there is a problem with the OA - ALSO"

This is a straight "not only...........but also"

Is a clear not only x but also y

but X and Y need to be parallel right

They are already || in usage of tense. Only thing is "but also" is split.
I think its OK to split "but" and "also" but NOT OK to split "not" and "only".

Any comments????

I think C is the best too... and splitting but also here is ok...

ALSO, if we just had "they" after comma, wouldn't it be a run on sentence? so A B and D are out for that reason... E is passive

ps_dahiya... comments on run-on?

IMO its not run on.
First clause can not stand of its own. For a run-on both clauses should be independent (Or non-restrictive, another name) and there should not be any conjunction between them.

because of "but also" is in the 2nd clause? I see it now... :oops: but this run-on and "should" rule of yours are really stuck in my head recently :lol:

Only C and E survives since the correct idiomatic form is
NOT ONLY.... BUT ALSO
E is not ||
so C it is
not only had many contractors....failed to pass but they had also falsified their references

C is the only choice with 'but they' which is needed to correspond to 'not only had' appearing earlier in the sentence.
