E.
ABC are wrong because for "AS MUCH".
D is also wrong for incorrect idiom.
The correct idiom is "as for x as for y".

@GT - What's wrong with "AS MUCH" in A,B,C ... "as much...as" looks correct to me.
Option E has parallelism error - "as well known for" and "as for" are not parallel. It should be "as well known for" and "as known for".
option "B" looks good to me - "as much for" and "as for" are parallel.
Any thoughts guys?
Cheers!
