I chose E.

I am not convinced with the reasoning, so correct me if I am wrong... I identified the sentence to be of the structure

From X than Y...

D and E are the only options. E follows the parallel structure correctly From PRESENT TENSE Than PRESENT TENSE... So Chose E.

Comparisons, Idioms and Parallelism. These are the three parameters tested on this question.

Got it. E it is.
