(E) looks correct to me.
It make the sentences parallel by using "were exalting" and "are trying". Also, "and" is better conjunction.

"Just as... so too" is the correct idiom... The 'too' is missing in the question stem. The OA is B..can we have some explanations here? :oops: [/u]

Well Ruhi no Offenece to you but I am 100% sure that Just as X...So Y is correct.

Just X ...So too Y is also an correct idiom. Honestly I don't know the difference but if you go n check OG (I don't remember the Question in OG but will find it and post it soon) You will find that both the idioms are correct.

If you have the Kaplan 2004 book with CD(or not), check an exact replica example at page 273 in the paper based practice test.
