E seems to me for the following
IN A, B, and D the market (singular)..............are (plural) doesn't agree and parallelism X,Y,and Z is not followed here.
IN C Parallelism Xenon, a Yemai, and Zahi is not sound well. so one option is left that is E. I THINK with my poor understanding.

D and E both are correct in terms of parallelism.

Where E fails to be the correct answer is that it is changing the intended meaning of the author.

Michelangelo’s art, Edison’s inventions, and Shakespeare’s plays represent all great achievements in human history

In this answer, what do these 3 things represent? all great achievements in human history. Answer E is saying that there are only 3 great achievements in human history whereas Answer D states that these 3 things represent only some of the great achievements.

1 E . ' the market' is singular hence should be 'is expanding rapidly'. also between c & e, bloggers, authors, etc are all plural in option E. In C the first two are plural and the 3rd is singular.

7D. in original sentence 'the art of M, the inventions of E' are not parallel to S's plays. to make them parallel the last phrase should instead be, the plays of S.
