B it is

The only one that properly compares two verbs. Moreover, the opposition
was not against their struggle, but rather to the social legitimacy of these units.

OA is B.

A and C are out for using against.
D is out 'more...as' is incorrect
E awkward

^ B ^

>>"opposition against" is redundant, so A and C are out.

>>"more ..than" is the correct usage, so D is out.

>>we need "did" as the helping verb because "encountered" is past simple, so E is out.

Will go with B. Opposition against is redundant, hence A/C are out. D changes the meaning of the sentence.
