Both .. as well as.. is not idomatic.

both X and Y is the right idiom. This leaves us with B and E.

E is awkward...B wins.

nice one. It comes down to either B or D. I belive that D is out b/c you can't assume that both, classical education and the experience were both reflected throughout the plays. B, however, contains 'that are', this way you know that both attributes were reflected thoughout the plays themselves. B it is.

(B) is my choice. I think A is wrong to use 'or' as the sentence uses
'both' which need 'and' as a joiner. (E) is out due to the use of 'one'.

After 3-2 split, only remaining choices are B and E. E is awkward but B contains a grammatical error.
"experience of life at court that are"

This looks to me as a subject -verb disagreement. It should either be "experiences..." or "...is". Are you sure B is the OA?

I can't believe B is the right answer. Of course, battle is only between B and E. Although E is little awkward, grammatically it is correct. However, B has a clear error in "that are". "That" or "Which" generally modifies noun next to it unless "that" is used as a conjunction. In this case, ideally, "that" should modify the noun "court". But IMO the author doesn't intend to modify the court. So it has meaning error, and I think if it modifies "court" then it should also have "S-V" error. Can someone please clarify if I am missing something here?
