Its pretty tricky, but A would go with E because it successfully compares early followers in India to (those) Early followers in China.

In this kind of question we need to pay attention to what we are comparing.

A) in contrast to China, ... those in India. Wrong comparison (country vs people)
B) who travelled ... and were disseminating. Wrong not parallel
C)Buddhism in India, ... China`s early followers. Wrong comparison (religion vs people)
D) who were itinerants ... and they disseminated. Wrong not parallel
and "in China they" is not clear
E)correct comparison; "in order to" explains why they were travelling and is used correctly

E for me. Valid comparison. Early followers of India compared to those of China.

I think its E.

(A) Wrong. Reason: In contrast to should have the same quantifiable value. Here at the start its 'India' (a country) and compared to 'those in China' (few people)
(B) Wrong. Reason: Buddhism's followers is a wrong term as Buddhism is not a person. And it's always followers of a group and not group's followers.
(C) Wrong. Reason: Same as (A) 'Buddhism in India' is being compared to 'China`s early followers of Buddism'. One is a belief and the other is a quantifiable number
(D) Wrong. Reason: Redundancy of thought, and not a very concisely written one. The wrong part is 'who were itinerants,many of them travelling' - both the parts separated by comma means the same

Cheers. Keep Dreaming.

E looks good for me. Except one doubt with the use of "they" which shows bit ambiguity between followers and the teachings.

Any comments
