IMO A

this questions uses the idiom

Not only X but also Y

X and Y need to be in Parallel form

only A and D use the correct idiom....but in D (there is no correctly- thus change of meaning)

Hence A

A GMAT CAT score is based on not only the number of questions answered correctly but also their difficulty level.

(A) on not only the number of questions answered correctly but also their difficulty level
Correct. "based on not only X....but also Y" is parallel and is correct.

(B) not only on the number of questions answered correctly but also their difficulty level
Wrong. "not only on X... but also Y" is not parallel. The correct ones are: "not only on X...but also on Y" or "on not only X..but also Y"

(C) not only on the number of questions answered correctly but also their level of difficulty
Wrong. Same as B. "not only on X... but also Y" is not parallel.

(D) not only on the number of questions answered but also on their difficulty level
Wrong. Change meaning because D omits "correctly".

(E) on not only the number of questions answered correctly but also on their difficulty level
Wrong. "on not only X...but also on Y" is not parallel.

Hope it helps.

TWO STRUCTURES ARE CORRECT HERE FOR IDIOM NOT ONLY ...BUT ALSO.
Those are in option A and in option D.
on NOT ONLY.....BUT ALSO ==>OPTION A
NOT ONLY ON ......BUT ALSO ON ===>OPTION D

but option D CHANGES THE MEANING by omitting the word CORRECTLY.
hence A.

even D is parallel but its meaning is not the intended meaning !!

I have been asking my friends too.. Most of them say that it will be D, because then parallelism is maintained.

its not only about parallelism but also about meaning (BTW i just used "not only but also !! ) .meaning has to come out unambiguously . in D the fact that questions are to be answered correctly is missing and that in fact is very important for keeping the meaning intact

An easy one..For E I will read
Based on..
the number of questions answered correctly
on their difficulty level

SO it reads Based on on their difficulty level

For D
Based..
on the number of questions answered
on their difficulty level
Both usages are correct & parallel

Kudos If I helped..

A is also parallel, in D correctly is missing and that causes loss of meaning. What do you say??

on
not only
the number of questions answered correctly
but also
their difficulty level

A is infact correct...but D sounds better if you include correctly..I considered absence of "correctly" as a Typo

could not decide between A and D, but then noticed that D does not have "correct", so A must be the right answer.
