"Substitute for "is the idiom, thus A,C,D are straight out; Between B& D D is awkward construction. Please post your explanations


"Substitute for" is the correct idiom. Between B and D, B is the right answer.

substitute....for is the correct idiom....
so A,C and E are wrong...
between B and D, B is more concise
