IS A the Answer..A Tough choice between A and B....The unavailability of "THE" before continued made me to lean towards "preserving the continued use" as in B, But again there was a Parallelism error in B....
as.......as is the idiom here....

A should be the answer.
The equal importance of the preservation ...and study of... is best conveyed with the idiom as... as.... Therefore, C,D,E are out. B breaks the parallellism "to preserving... to the study of..."

probably, it is (a). although, (d) sounds nice as well. in tough conditions of gmat, i'd go with (a)

This is a Comparison problem. In the original sense of the sentence, Howe was as committed to X... as he was to Y...Eliminate C, D, and E. The preservation is more parallel with the study than is preserving with the study. The correct answer is A.
