Which answer choices are you confused between? Here is a hint: you can rule out all the wrong options based on poor parallelism alone. Give it a shot!

B exhibits poor parallelism - "having an eccentric personality" is a participial phrase, "skillful wax renderings" is a noun phrase.

There is only one answer that includes only parallel structures.

Yes, E is the only one where parallelism is not an issue. gurpreet07, can you confirm that the OA is E?

E.

B and E are contenders.
Now, in B something which is possessed by Wright is compared with something which he/she is doing.

In E, something which Wright possesses(personality) is compared with something which Wright possesses(skillful renderings)
