I'm going with B in this one.

A and E don't use the correct idiom Both X and Y, so out.

In C the idiom is not parallel "for both business journals and for general consumer magazines"

In D especially if focused modifies the current economic downturn. I'd say that this is not correct.

Although I think option B is correct, What does those refer to? Both business journals and consumer magazines? Also shouldn't be more correct to write "for both business journals and general consumer magazines"?

Polling is for people who want to give an answer without an explanation. The purpose of the forums is to discuss the answers, not to fill up the topics with one-letter responses....

OA is B.

It's clear that "those" is crucial. My only confusion is between "for both" and "both for". Does it make a difference? In any case, B has less words than D, so I guess it wins on that account.

Yeap it makes a difference. in both X and Y, X and Y must be parallel.

For instance,

Both for business journals and for consumer magazines. Correct
for both business journals and consumer magazines. Correct and I'd say better than the previous one.
forth both business journals and for consumer magazines. Incorrect X and Y are not parallel

i am going with B for this question. parallelism is not maintained in A, D and E. when is not correctly used in C. so B wins
