Both X and Y needs to be parallel.
C - - - > x is noun+noun modifier and y is relative phrase
D - - - > x is prepositional phrase and y is relative clause

A is totally non - sensical in meaning. Acme now draws on production of adult entertainers. (No, it draws on works)

E misplaces now .

B is cleanly parallel

(B) now draws on the works of adult entertainers, both those who work for magazines and those who work - Maintains the parallelism after both. Hence correct.

Answer B.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



The sentence as written is incorrect as it places ‘both’ too far from the parts of the sentence to which it refers. B corrects this error. C unnecessarily repeats the subject using the pronoun ‘it’. It also does not have parallel structure in that it uses ‘work’ and ‘working’. D and E repeat the problem with the placement of ‘both’. D is not parallel in that it uses ‘working’ and ‘are working’. E implies that there are only two adult entertainers. B is correct.
