a...
b. be both extremely difficult as well as a waste of resources as
c. both be extremely difficult and a waste of resources as
d. both be extremely difficult as well as waste resources since
e. be extremely difficult and would waste resources as well since

words after BOTH should be connected with the conjunction "AND", so b , d are out.
Moreover the parallelism should be maintained - so A, C are out as well.

(B) war brewing in Europe, the industrial revolution surging, and a nascent communication age.
(C) war in Europe, the industrial revolution well-established, and a nascent communication age.
(D) war brewing in Europe, the industrial revolution well-established, and the communication age beginning.

The other sentences do not have parallelism. I guess

A. earned by their employees and the information be published
B. that their employees earned and that the information be published
C. that was earned by their employees with the information being published
D. earned by their employees, information that must also be published no conjunction
E. earned by their employees and published the information

I would go for A - Corporations would be required to ...... and (be required) the information be published.

In 14, I still prefer B to D.
In D, imo it is not clear, what "information" is modifying, so I chose B.
