According to criminologists, the cause of riots among many segments of the population is not so much that rioters are being primed for violent behavior by their parents or to rebel against oppressive regimes by the media as that the rioters are spontaneously spurred to action by a specific incident.

we are comparing two causes....so the idiom as much as has to be used. So eleminating A, C, D and E. Only option left for me is B but that also seems incorrect. OA plz.

A is perfect. so x that y is the idiom. That kills B, C, D and E. Kinda simple.
C,D and E - use the placeholder "it" which is wordy. But 3:2 split leaves A,B in one group and C,D and E in other group. So A was straight !
