A new genetically engineered papaya was produced not by seed companies who have been motivated by profit, which was the case with most genetically modified crops previously approved for commercial use, but university and United States Department of Agriculture researchers who allowed growers to use it free of charge.

A produced not by seed companies who have been motivated by profit, which was the case with most genetically modified crops previously approved for commercial use, but
B produced not by profit-motivated seed companies, the case with most genetically modified crops previously approved for commercial use, but
C produced not by profit-motivated seed companies, as was the case with most genetically modified crops previously approved for commercial use, but by
D not produced by profit-motivated seed companies, which was the case with most genetically modified crops previously approved for commercial use, but was produced by
E not produced by seed companies who have been motivated by profit, the case with most genetically modified crops previously approved for commercial use, but by

My answer is C. Nice question BTW.

C is concise and maintains the parallelism by using - "not by" "but by"

D comes close, but "not produced by" and "but produced by" is not parallel

I rejected A, B and E on the grounds that "the case with most genetically modified...." is awkward.

Barely managed to pick C.

Could eliminate D and E ,as "not produced"...would lead to "profit-minded companies still being responsible although they might not have produced them ( probably they acquired them ).

C

A and B - No. Lacks Parallel structure. Should be "but by"
C - Keep. Not happy with "profit-motivated". It should parallel "who allowed growers to use it free of charge".
D - No. Wordy.
E - No. "the case with most genetcally modified crops..." wrongly modifies the "the papaya was not produced by seed companies"

You are right, OA is C.
But well, from allthose explanations I cannot see the difference between В and C. I'm not a native speaker, so there's no difference for me between "not produced by" and "produced not by"

Can anyone explain the difference more clearly? I would appreciate...

You need paralellism

Not by.... but by

B is missing a by after but.

Usually, you have to put the verb out and make the comparison by the predicate of the verb.

Hope it helps.

Easy question.
You can make an idiom : not by X, but by Y - I think I met it in sentence correcton bible (Manhattan)

THe option C maintains the parellelism perfectly and is concise and gives the intended meaning.
