Yeah answer is "E".
1. Idiom - "not only...but(also)..." correctly employed.
2. verb "convinced" beautifully drives two clauses - "that victory is his" and " that confronting the issues might bring out differences not only among the general electorate but also among Republicans"
parallely.

3. The whole past participle phrase clearly modifies the subject - "Dewey" of independent clause.

cheers,
Dharmin

E....
1. not only ... but also
2. parallel construction: convinced that ... and that ...

Apparently convinced that victory was his and that confronting the issues might bring out differences not only among the general electorate but also
among Republicans, Dewey made no direct attack on Trumanâ€™ s
policies.
