I say E

A and B are out because "between...and" is idiomatic.

D is out because it's too wordy.

C is tough to rule out...I just don't like it.

For me, B sounds more apt. 'coz the usage of two 'and's consequently does not sound correct to for me.
So, I'm left with A and B.
In A, the usage of 'between...to produce' is yet again a bit awkward.

OA/OE Plz

Nyways, OA/OE needed for this Q.

B for me too.
using 'and' confuses what reacts 'with' what.

E also. I believe "and" is required since two different ideas are presented.
