Agree with empanado

Not only...but also should be used when both refer to the positive or negative.
Here, farmland and furniture are positive, whereas erosion is a negative effect.

Hence A, B out.

Among C,D,E it an easy D.

OA is option (D).

The possible reason might be this:
For "Not only....but also" to hold true, the items which follow not only and but also should be supporting to each other. In this question, they are contrasting to each other. So "Not only... but also" doesn't hold true.

So, we might have to suffice ourselves with "but".

Among all the options, (D) seems to be the best
