I'd go with E. The as well seems redundant but I think A needs the "of". All of the other choices definitely don't work.

I will choose A although all choices seem weird.

B,C,D - both......also seems redundant
E - both .....aswell seems redundant

A

both is redundant given that 'also' is included in the other sentences as well.

redundant

redundant

D. both of drug dependency but also from prejudicial treatment

E. both of drug dependency and of prejudicial treatment as well

OA is E.

the idiom is Both X and Y

E is the only choice that maintains parallelism.

of drug dependency
of prejudicial treatment

Two questions
1. What is the difference between

as well as
and
as well

2. Why is both and as well not redundant?

A it is.

E is a redundant choice.

A/E are both correct.

However, A is preferable as of is placed before both, being more concise.

What is the source for this SC? Kaplan/Barrons? OG/GMAT wouldn't give something as ambiguous as this.
