In the admissions process, universities have begun to focus more and more on recommendations from teachers and personal statements from students, in part that their student body should acquire diversity and partly because recommendations provide more personal appraisals of students' abilities

in part that their student body should acquire diversity

in part for the acquisition of diversity in their student body

partly because of their student body acquiring diversity

partly because diversity should be acquired by their student body

partly to acquire diversity in their student body

First of all A and B are out as for the paallelism we need partly on both sides.

In the first part of the sentence it is the construction partly because subject and verb so we need the same construction for the second part.

So C and E are out as well.

And the right answer is D

as cute smiley said, D is passive. as for C, it just didn't follow the parallelism. if you are following the sentence structure, then it should be partly because <subject> <verb>...

whenever you have a choice passive or active always choose active.
