I belive that many people (even I - have test next tuesday) will make mistake by making assumption that "but also" has to always come with not only. If you are out of that illusion than no option will look incorrect.

Why D is preferred over A.
Please see explaination by Ron. http://www.manhattangmat.com/forums/not ... t3129.html
[ Not only-----but also has to give either positive or negative ]
