A seems best in my opinion.

"not for" should be there in the correct statement. And their is the correct pronoun here.

I'd go with C.
A and D are out because "their" does not properly refer to "storm"
proper idiom is "for X, not Y"
E wrongly introduces a conjunction "and" which does not show contrast in the 2 actions
B does not follow proper idiom with the introduction of "for"
Ex: I'm doing this for Isabella, not Martha --> ok and concise
Ex: I'm doing this for Isabella, not for Martha --> wrong
E is nonetheless staring at me pretty badly :shock:

My shot ... A is correct.

The data collected by weather airplanes that fly into the heart of a hurricane are useful mainly for gauging the storm’s structure and strength, not for the speed and the path of their movement.

(A) not for the speed and the path of their movement - "THEIR" correctly refers to DATA (plural). And also satsifies the Idiom, X, not Y.

Pardon me, my mistake (copy paste technology used fast, that I did not see the word I copied). I meant the AIRPLANES.

Thanks for pointing the error.
