I think C is the most parallel of all.

... symptoms resemble those of one diseases and differ from those of others.

E is not so parallel and suggests an unnecessary contrast

I think C

"symptoms" is plural and we must use "differ" and not "differs"

and parallel structure and comparing similar objects

C for ||ism and removing redundant words.

"differ from" is almost always better than "different from"
